Spending out of control

Let’s have the Canadian people decide where the money should go

The taxpayers have always been mislead about the costs of all of our expensive projects.

Here are some examples. The most ridiculous estimate that we don’t even hear about anymore is the Johnson Street bridge (to start with was $63 million), sewage treatment ($783 million), well underestimated E&N proposal of $20 million to fix railway tracks, bridges, and trestles. Nonsense!

Most of us know that our financial experts from all levels of government have always been wrong with their estimates on any projects. Whoever comes up with these number must be insane. The money mentioned in any of these projects is a simple math, and will only pay the “elite” and project managers.

We all need to think that we can’t spend what we don’t have. We have nothing to worry about in Canada apart from the national debt and the people who are managing our money and spending with no hesitations. To start with, we need to get rid of corrupted authorities in our system.

Let’s have the Canadian people decide where the money should go. The simple answer to that is to have a proper economic census and follow the suggestions of the ordinary citizen.
