Certainly, global population is increasing, at about 80 million people each year. Living standards, on the other hand, are not increasing. In North America, the income for the typical person is no better today than it was 30 years ago, relative to the cost of living. Globally, we have more poor people than ever before. Hardly surprising, it's not easy to create 80 million above-average incomes every year in a world where 7 billion people are already competing desperately for ever diminishing resources.
So what are they planning to do? Well, nothing about global population. Not even anything about Canadian population. Let's face it, every politician in Canada is dead set to increase population. Long ago, the Canadian people voted with their loins, reducing birth rates to replacement or lower.... Yet our undemocratic politician's insist on driving population ever upward!
So, if they are not going to address population, what is the plan?
The administrators are only looking after their own interests. They have been put in charge of setting the terms of reference. And the terms of reference are to blow the budget on talk feasts and reports full of gabble-garbage. And when it's all gone, perhaps Mr Irving will find them another pot to plunder! These self-serving goons are already targeting your pocket with a suggestion to "update taxation and user fees policies". That's code for robbing the rest of us blind!
Hell bells, just fire all the talking-head twit-wits and hire real people who do real stuff.
Obviously, consolidation to cut bureaucracy does not suite the administrative classes. Consolidation just wouldn't do, would it? Cooperation, collaboration and coordination are three excellent make-work projects for the administrative class.
OK, I lied. I see that the Town of Wolfville plans to do twice as much planning as any of the other Towns. I guess that's because we have twice as many talking-head administrators on the payroll? It couldn't be because of a lack of prior planning, could it? Plans, an economic foundation for the County?
And they'll all CCC while they PPP. (Cooperate, Collaborate and Coordinate while they Plan to Pick our Pockets.) Sing it to a Beach Boys tune...
