“Soft tax collectors”

"The MoL, MTO, OCOT, WSIB, etc. enforce unnecessary laws and regulations to insulate large, unionized corporations from smaller, hungrier, highly-skilled trades."

One more about the Ontario College of Trades. Readers in other provinces, please bear with us.

Ontario uses its bureaucracy as a form of soft tax collector and a method of discouraging small business. MoL, MTO, OCOT, WSIB, etc. enforce unnecessary laws and regulations, meant to insulate large unionized corporations from smaller, hungrier, highly-skilled trades.

The sad reality of the situation is, in order to combat the Keynesian Goliath which prevents sensible free market solutions, independent operators would need to organize, thereby creating a squabbly, corruptible union or governing body. The very thing which caused the initial problem. If my family were not settled in the police state of Ontario, I would have left long ago. The only recourse is to disobey.
