Round-the-clock nightlife zone Coming To Montreal Canada: Government Regulations Destroyed Quebec, to combat their NANNY STATE, the government hopes to recreate life in the city – January 16, 2024
In Canada, the Province of Quebec is known for being a NIGHTMARE place to start a business, and fortunately (depending on how you see things), the Province of Quebec gets REWARDED with Equalization payments, for creating their economic nightmare.
Equalization payments in Canada are a federal program designed to reduce the disparities in revenue-generating capabilities among the provinces. This system aims to ensure that all Canadian provinces can provide a reasonably similar level of public services at relatively similar levels of taxation.
Here’s a quick breakdown:
- Purpose: The main goal is to address fiscal disparities among provinces due to differences in economic activities, resources, and tax bases.
- Funding: The program is funded by the federal government through general federal revenues. There is no direct transfer of funds from one province to another.
- Calculation: The formula used to calculate equalization payments considers a province’s ability to generate revenue. If a province’s capacity is below a national average, set through a complex formula, it receives equalization payments.
- Impact: These payments allow less prosperous provinces to offer public services that are comparable to those in more prosperous provinces without having to impose excessive tax rates.
- Controversy and Debate: The program is sometimes a source of political debate, as it involves significant financial transfers and touches on issues of federal-provincial relations.
Equalization payments are part of Canada’s commitment to ensuring a balance of opportunities and services across the country.
So because Quebec, in general, fails to attract revenue via the stupidity of its voters and politicians and is rewarded for this stupidity via equalization payments, the province and cities within the province JUSTIFIABLE can imagine that the more government regulations and more government INITIATES are the solution.
Now, an argument can made that in some instances, the government does come up with the right solutions, but typically, this occurs in COUNTRIES, in which the government is ECONOMICALLY incentivized to do so.
Quebec, being perpetually reliant on the profitability of solvent and prosperous provinces, as well as rarely considering dissolving prior economic errors within its current fiscal framework, tends to operate from a position that it can use more government levers to extra money, it imagines its population is SAVING.
When a Province/State or a city is PERPETUALLY reliant on the good graces of its neighbor, this is typically an indication that the current government is doing something wrong and should probably consider dissolving certain PRIOR government initiatives that have proven to be bad for the city.
Although you’d never know it if you lived in English-speaking Canada, Montreal is actually far more dangerous than Toronto. Toronto currently clocks in as one of the safest cities in the entire country.
Montreal doesn’t even make the top 15 list; I bring this up because the proposal is a “Round-the-clock nightlife zone,” which I’d assume would include a larger police presence, which would also include a more expensive city budget because city workers aren’t working for free.
Now, the actual revenue problem in Montreal is via the way they treat SMALL and MEDIUM-sized businesses in the province of Quebec. Economic fascism comes to mind when you look at Quebec, as there are a lot of PROTECTIONIST policies in Quebec that protect certain industries and act as a deterrent for new businesses to Quebec.
So then you have to factor in provincial policies with Municipal policies, where you’ll start to see the revenue problems. You also have to remember that after a few decades of a National Socialist economic system, you’ll get fewer people wanting to be entrepreneurs, meaning fewer HOMEGROWN entrepreneurs in Quebec.
Canadian Equalization Payment Numbers in 2023
- Quebec: $14 billion
- Manitoba: $3.5 billion
- Nova Scotia: $2.8 billion
- New Brunswick: $2.6 billion
- Prince Edward Island: $561 million
- Ontario: $421 million
With Quebec, the worst part is that they appear to be living in their own bubble, as Quebecers imagine that they’re entitled to receive the best of the best immigrants, which is hilarious for those of us looking at Quebec from a distance.
If you’re unaware of why PROTECTIONISM is a bad idea, it’s because not only do you destroy the domestic population, you also start to attract people who want to join the welfare state. If I’m a productive entrepreneur, why would I want to be situated in a place that punishes success?
Protectionism is the welfare state, and the welfare state creates a sense of ENTITLEMENT amongst the citizens. All it takes is one entitlement generation to change an entire culture.
Because once you become entitled to things, you accept nothing less, and if you’re unaware, an entitlement is an UNEARNED benefit. Equalization payments are an UNEARNED benefit, equating to the Quebec government in general enjoying unearned benefits. The people vote for the government by the way, so don’t imagine that their entitled government just showed up out of nowhere, the Quebec governance is a reflection of their voting public.
So, via government mandate, the people in charge of Montreal wish to put a Round-the-clock nightlife zone into existence without considering the potential additional costs to the city. Why consider the cost when you’re entitled to Equalization payments? Voter beware.
Interesting times ahead!
