A tax for farmers? 
(en francais)


Ok, it's official, someone found Marc Emery's stash. A grocery tax with the proceeds directed to farmers? What are they smoking? The last thing we need in Canada is more taxes or spending for that matter. How about a reduction in taxes, eliminate provincial trade barriers and encourage the Doha round of talks?







Grocery tax urged to help farmers
But even those who would benefit call it 'terrible idea'

OTTAWA - Canadians should be forced to pay a new tax on groceries to help cash-strapped farmers struggling to make ends meet, according to a new report on sustainable agriculture.

Immigration rules should also change so newcomers to Canada are encouraged to live in isolated, rural areas, much like government policies a century ago, according to a report from the Agricultural Institute of Canada.
You can find the report on the Agricultural Institute's website. It mentions that the report was commissioned to generate discussion and debate. Well - I'd say they succeeded.
