Re: Health tax stays: Premier, Dec. 19, Metro


Does anyone remember the game “Sim City 2000”? The object of the game was to build a city that was self-sustaining, efficient and populated. One of the ways you could attract residents to the city was to lower taxes … Too low, and your citizens would flock in but local commodities like, fire safety, health care, and general upkeep would fall apart, and you’d eventually have little monsters running through the streets.


People are attracted to the Canadian economy because of our extensive health-care coverage, but the very Canadians who relish such bliss, seem to complain of “broken promises” and such when obvious increases in our tax and tariff system arise.


What’s that saying about, having cake and eating it too?
