Great move, New Brunswick!
This is another gift from the welfare state, just on the provincial level instead of the individual. You can reject all personal responsibility (extend that to the level of province) when you are assured of having those who actually work and pay taxes bail you out and pay your fare. Equalisation is simply welfare that ensures that provincial governments need never worry about fiscal responsibility and accountability.
Well as long as they have separate buses for french and english kids, that’s all that matters.
I hope those are solar powered buses.
Maritime politicians and their assorted rent seeking pals/relatives almost never miss letting real opportunities go to waste.
I said it to my MLA last election cycle; if Alberta went after all the maritimers living in Alberta in Camps who claim they live in the maritimes even though they spend 80% of the year in Alberta and made them pay taxes as a resident of Alberta it would collapse the maritime economies and then maybe they would realize what the evils of Alberta’s resources does for them. Of course they would just go cry to the liberals and ndp in parliament that they need more transfer funds.
