Why PUBLIC SECTORS all over Canada are TERRIFIED if Alberta leaves the CPP: Were You Aware that Equalization Payments Fund PUBLIC SECTOR Wages? Private vs. Public Sector WAGES explained – October 9, 2023
Obviously, I have more anarcho-capitalist leanings, which equates to me PREFRRING that all branches of government do what they were DESIGNED to do, which is protect our liberties and freedoms.
Socialists have always imagined a world in which the government PROGRESSIVELY replaces the private sector. Still, there’s always been a problem with this type of thinking, which is that the STATE/Government is HORRIBLE at creating wealth.
Raw Democracy is MAJORITY rule; for example, if Canada had a RAW DEMOCRACY for Federal Leadership of the country, Andrew Scheer or even Erin O’Toole would be the Prime Minister of Canada right now. Justin Trudeau STRATEGICALLY won the last two elections, but he actually lost the POPULAR vote twice.
The popular vote in Canada equates to the candidate who won the most votes in the country; Trudeau actually lost that TWICE, which is one of the reasons he’s so unpopular. In the United States, one of the reasons Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud sound laughable to most is that in both elections, without question, he lost the POPULAR vote TWICE.
Knowing this, the mainstream media is able to target the POPULAR vote in Canada; although Justin Trudeau lost the POPULAR vote TWICE, collectively, the left-wing political Parties in Canada combined won over 60% of the votes, which is an indicator for the media, to have a LEFT WING bias.
I bring this stuff up because a lot of people are confused as to why things are the way they are and often try to imagine some sort of CONSPIRACY theory to validate what they imagine the truth SHOULD be.
When designing a republic, the CREATORS have to anticipate certain events will take place if the republic isn’t designed correctly. The transfer/equalization payments aren’t actually the problem in Canada; the problems stem from the imagination of voters of how things ought to be.
Albertans have been talking about secession for as long as I can remember, but why they were never taken seriously, is because no politician in Alberta had the desire, to push back against Ottawa.
Pushing back against Ottawa has little to do with words and more to do with ACTIONS; for example, Quebec to ACTIONS against Ottawa to ensure that Ottawa could NOT abuse it. Quebec was so successful at doing this that in modern politics today, every single politician has to pay close attention to the Quebec voter because Quebec HAD economic leverage over Ottawa, that it rightfully abused.
Well, that leverage Quebec HAD over Ottawa was due in large part because the largest contributor to the EQUALIZATION payments remained silent, while the Quebec PENSION PLAN benefited.
You might be saying to yourself, wtf am I talking about? Quebecers have their own pension plan; the problem is the Canadian Pension Plan. You’d imagine that to be true if you imagined that the PUBLIC SECTOR in Canada is SOLVENT.
Justin Trudeau is running record deficits, and most Canadians don’t comprehend what that actually means to WAGE EARNING public servants. What this means to wage-earning public servants is that their paychecks, many of which via their unions keep pace with INFLATION, are being financed by the PRIVATE SECTOR.
Now, if you know anything about Alberta, per capita, and I think possibly in general, it has the largest non-government-reliant PRIVATE SECTOR in Canada. For example I like to bring up Crown Corporations(State Owned Enterprises/Government Monopolies) that in general direct Canadian consumers to purchase certain items from government-run or government-subsidized entities that have no viable competitor.
Examples would be the Canada Post, the Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC), The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation(CBC), or the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). There are certain private businesses or even charities that are 100% reliant on these State-owned enterprises, equating to a lot of wealth that could have existed in Canada being denied.
In certain instances, The Department of Canadian Heritage denies other private entities from DRIVING DOWN prices for consumers, which also equates to the Canadian private sector being able to drive down prices for consumers, which ends up putting Canada’s federal government in a position to borrow money to fill the gaps.
Now, when the government borrows money or creates new government WAGE PAYING positions to fill the gaps the private sector would have been better suited to solve, this puts a larger strain on the CPP.
Why are PUBLIC servants such a huge problem to the CPP? Because Public Servants, don’t actually CONTRIBUTE to the Canadian Pension Plan(CPP).
Now it’s okay when I write this, because I’m a lowly blogger, but politicians aren’t allowed to say this out loud, why? Well, because on a public servant’s paycheck it does show that they’re contributing to CPP.
In Quebec, public servants can clearly see on their paychecks that they’re contributing to QPP, so what am I talking about exactly? I’m referring to where the REAL money to fund the CPP and the QPP is actually coming from, and that’s from the PRIVATE SECTOR.
Again I remind you, that Canada’s Federal Government is BROKE; it has a shortfall, and it’s running a deficit that Justin Trudeau keeps expanding, now let’s take things a bit further, a lot of Canadians’ PROVINCES are also BROKE, in Canada, these are called “HAVE NOT” provinces.
Have provinces are those that generate more tax revenue per person than the national average, while have-not provinces have revenue per person below the national average.
For example, MANITOBA, recently voted for a far left Premier, oddly enough, Manitoba is a Have Not province, meaning that it’s PUBLIC sector consumes more resources than it PRODUCES.
Now, Left Wingers, like to restructure how they IMAGINE Equalization formulas should be calculated, but if their formulas were correct, Alberta leaving the CPP wouldn’t be Alberta’s funeral.
Even Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre is terrified of Alberta leaving the CPP, why? Because it would equate to AUSTERITY for the Federal Government, most Canadian politicians who comprehend BASIC MATH, understand how important Alberta being in the CPP is to the current survival of the CPP.
You’ll notice that most people aren’t mentioning Quebec in all of this when Quebec should be terrified, but Quebec already has its levers of power in place, meaning that as the CPP goes bankrupt, the FEDERAL government will have to find a way to finance Quebecs PUBLIC SECTOR.
I can almost guarantee that most people don’t comprehend why everyone is scared of Alberta leaving the CPP, because mixed up in all of this are the SKEWED Equalization payment numbers when it comes to 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
Everyone in Canada knows that Quebec takes the lion’s share of equalization in Canada, but what’s ignored is that the $14 Billion you see there, pays PUBLIC SECTOR employees, who contribute to the QUEBEC PENSION PLAN, so let’s say Alberta leaves the CPP, and Pierre Poilievre becomes the next Prime Minister of Canada, do you comprehend what will happen?
Yes, I am making the claim that Western Canadians are FINANCING the Quebec Pension Plan, and if Alberta leaves the CPP, this will put a lot of pressure on the PRIME MINISTER to generate revenue to cover that MASSIVE shortfall.
My thoughts on this issue, is that Justin Trudeau, offers some benefits, in that he’s been such a HORRIBLE Prime Minister that things, that would have never happened to benefit LIBERTY AND FREEDOM in Canada, are happening becaue Justin Trudeau is such a horrible leader.
So Justin Trudeau is renewing my faith in God and Jesus Christ, that I shouldn’t expect things to happen the way I think they should happen, instead trust in Gods plan.
This is Alberta’s decision, but the numbers show, that as long as Albertans continue to run a fiscally responsible government, they’re going to have potentially the most wealthy pension plan in the world. People tend to forget with pensions, that everyone doesn’t withdraw at the same time, and the AGE of the population is very important, oddly enough Alberta is the 2nd YOUNGEST province in Canada.
Interesting times ahead!
