You applaud the role of lower corporate income taxes in Canada’s economic growth story. But you conveniently fail to mention Canada’s nationalized health-care system. You also omit the fact that Canada averted the financial crisis with more stringent regulations on mortgage lending. Thankfully, I was able to pay off my mortgage a long time ago. However, I’m alarmed about going to a hospital or seeing a doctor with my high-deductible insurance plan, for fear of the bill.
Aside from lower corporate taxes, could it be that Canada’s government provides a fairer and more secure environment for individuals to deliver their talents in the aid of economic prosperity?
