Here’s a recent post by Robert Sloan:

“It sure does seem like “trades” are now seen by all levels of government as easy cash cow targets. Politicians have decided we have received more than our fair share. I don’t blame them here in Ontario. The trade unions through the Working Family Coalition Group decided the last two provincial elections at an enormous cost, and we bent over for the Ontario College of Trades to pick our pockets too. I have no doubt that this revenue tool will come to other areas too. It will end up assisting the underground economy. I believe we are way to quick to take positions like ‘What can you do?’ or ‘Oh well, everyone else has the same burdens so we just pass on the extra cost.’ “

    Hi Steve

    Constitution Chaos, the Liberals swore under oath to became salesman who knew it? The Ontario college of Tyranny unlawful status, now is the tool for money making machine for the liberals, who knew it?

    Toilet paper with some faces on it should do the trick, sold all over the public washrooms. Maybe some people will have a lot of pleasure cleaning when the sun does not shine.
