Years later, Ontario College of Trades video “still frightening”
"Taxes are the only reason for OCOT existing," says Christine
Another vote of No Confidence re: the Ontario College of Trades. The commenter had just seen the Ontario College of Trades “Are Your Protected?” public service video, from two years ago, on our site here.
This video is frightening and I’ll tell you why. I reported two “underground” garages doing repairs on vehicles with no licenses, all cash businesses and years later, they are still going strong. Neither were ever investigated. So if the “are you protected?”is the last of their concerns, it proves that taxes are their only reason for existing. And to operate a huge expensive government department off the backs of hard working tradespeople, just for greed and nothing else, is sickening and scary. What next? Our government in this province would do anything to open a new tax department. Next will be a ‘Tradesmen Cut Analysis Department’ or TCAD, with $350 per year tax charged to tradesmen to report and analyze your cuts from working. There will be an annual budget of $30-million and you will have to waste an hour of your day photographing your cuts and scanning doctor reports, and if you don’t “comply” or pay your taxes, no health care for you. The control and amount of government is what is terrifying.
