The Trudeau government wants to use your tax dollars to get into the wine business despite wine being one of the things that people have been making for centuries without government help.
Yes, the Trudeau Liberals want to use your tax dollars to build a research winery in Kentville, Nova Scotia.
A government job as a wine taster who will retire with a fat government pension might be nice but then again, do I want to drink government wine?
Joking aside, this does bring up a deeper question about the role of government.
Government does have a role in society. Most of us would agree that building the roads and bridges we all use is one, funding and equipping the army is another and running the courts and the justice system yet another.
How on earth did we get to be a country that needed the government to run a winery or our daycares or to sell our fish?
It’s sad that we are at this point. Most don’t think about fundamental questions like this but it’s at the core of so many problems.
If they run all these other aspects of our lives, why can’t they control our speech, our thoughts, and why can’t they tell us what we can and cannot say?
Out of control government needs to be pushed back on all fronts - starting now.
