Incidentally, this potentially will lead to Alberta seceding from Canada, either to become their own nation or join the US. Which, courtesy of the Quebecois and the Canadian supreme court, is 100% legal.
Alberta is shouldering something like 99.9% of the nominal tax load of your country. In another few years if nothing changes the total marginal tax outflow will be $20,000 for every man, woman, and child, leaving alberta never to be seen again. Primarily to bribe the Quebecois since your government started paying them ransom money after the threatened to secede. At a certain point the Albertans will start questioning if it's really worth it. >>168399762
Yeah it is. People don't realize that social security is basically a fucking pyramid scheme. Luckily the boomers had a lot of kids, so if we can get some fiscally responsible politicians in at some point in the future we can pay down the debt a bit with those tax revenues. Just need to get rid of all the boomers first.
