Vote for Ontario Becoming Quebec


Is Ontario becoming the new Quebec?

Well, Q is trying to change now.  Not much chance.

Ontario, if it exists under the Liberals, will not become Q, but more like Japan.  Endless central planning for photo-ops leads to things like the Niagara Tunnel to Nowhere, and the 'Men are from Mars' thing.  We all know every other disaster.  We also have giant State-run companies (the old company), and most of the economy run by monopolies, and state-protected banks.  That is why we don't have productive investment.

Speaking of the old company, I love this article.

GM Follies

There's a better one in Automotive News, but you can only get to it once.  Seems they hired a bozo engineer, who controlled everything.  He designed a flimsy switch and covered it up.  Now, I'm not saying I've seen this a million times before,  but it is a classical result of a dysfunctional bureaucracy.  I've written up some fine local examples.  GM used to be a monopoly and that is how it is structured.  They now shipped in a whole bunch of new people who say they don't know anything, and fired a lot of scapegoats.  At least we retire them.
