The pro­vin­cial Con­ser­va­tives are up­set that the Not­ley govern­ment is en­act­ing leg­is­la­tion lim­it­ing elec­tion fundrais­ing ef­forts, which will re­sult in par­ties rais­ing less money to get elected, than what Rachel and com­pany are spend­ing on ads to raise sup­port for the soon-to-be en­acted Car­bon Tax. And this is just the be­gin­ning.

Just re­mem­ber, gov­ern­ments have no money, tax­pay­ers have money, and we are all go­ing to have less of it as we progress through the fu­ture.

Saw a news item the other day, that a Cana­dian Navy ship was in Florida off load­ing $715 mil­lion dol­lars worth of co­caine they had in­ter­cepted from an­other boat some­where off the coast.

So, rather than dis­pose of the drug, the govern­ment should sell it, and put the profit to buy a new air­plane for the air force. Maybe over­sim­pli­fi­ca­tion, but since the

Lib­er­als are en­act­ing leg­is­la­tion for mar­i­juana use, this might be an­other way to cut costs for the mil­i­tary.

And speak­ing of the fed­eral Lib­er­als, they still don't have the pay­roll pay­ment sys­tem worked out yet, al­low­ing fed­eral civil ser­vants to get paid. They must have some loyal em­ploy­ees. Hav­ing said that, the am­bi­tious plan to com­bine 1500 in­di­vid­ual govern­ment web­sites, into one, called canada.ca, is nowhere near com­plete. A CBC story, this ini­tia­tive was ap­par­ently started by the pre­vi­ous Con­ser­va­tive govern­ment, and now, three years later, the project is 10 times over the ini­tial es­ti­mate, and far from com­ple­tion.
