  • Would another option be to abolish Invest Nova Scotia, save $5 million and take a small step towards reducing personal and business income taxes?

  • Just what we need–another collection of “not for profit” organizations sucking up the monies from those who put our personal credit and guarantees on the line to produce those monies.
    Would the Bluenose rebuild or Daewoo subsidiary or the Yarmouth ferry fiasco qualify? They appear to be non-profit.
    Like the Bluenose our leaders have an overweight non functioning rudder

    • Bill, it could be argued that “for profit” organizations are preferable since the ability to earn a profit is the best indication of success in satisfying consumers in an open market. And if the organization can do so using only its own resources (investment/debt) not taxpayer funds, so much the better.

  • I’d have to agree Bill .
    As far as your allergy question goes,; of course the NDP are for certain incentives, for in the Trenton case and no doubt the film tax credit, these funds went to ‘support’ their members . Perhaps we should be thankful that those didn’t reach the intended targets or the continued redistribution might have continued .
