The Final Solution: Canadian Edition

When one needs that famously compassionate Canadian health care, the reply can be to GO KILL YOURSELF!

A disabled veteran in Canada has slammed her government for offering to euthanize her when she grew frustrated at delays in having a wheelchair lift installed in her home.

[...] After years of frustrating delays in getting the home lift, Gauthier says the caseworker told her: 'Madam, if you are really so desperate, we can give you medical assistance in dying now.'

This wasn't just a single incident.

The worker who made the offer hasn't been named, but they are feared to have offered three other veterans who contacted VAC with problems the same 'solution', Global News reported.

It was definitely a shock.

'I was like, 'I can't believe that you will … give me an injection to help me die, but you will not give me the tools I need to help me live,'' she said.

Yup, because that's cheaper! Canadians have to comprehend that they are financially responsible for their health care and retirement. Government health care and pension should be counted as a zero! If they do miraculously get any proper medical treatment or pension payments in the future, then they should count it as a bonus. Otherwise, have savings for hospital visits in the US and keep filling up the RRSP and TFSA.


Decades of disaster

Boomers: Why don't you buy a house?

Answer:

[...] average income of Ontarians between the ages of 25 and 34 years has stayed nearly the same for decades, lingering at an average of roughly $50,000 a year. According to the latest data from StatsCan, the yearly income was $50,800 in 2020.

While the average house goes for $1 million.

“It takes 22 years of full-time work for the typical young person to save a 20 [per cent] down payment on an average priced home,” the report reads, which they say is 17 years longer than when “today’s aging population” were their age.

Read that again: 22 years of savings to pay for 20% of an average house. Simply unaffordable. To top it all off, the nefarious Canadian government will be importing 500,000 people every year which will continue to keep wages low and further increase real estate prices.


Jew got to be kidding me?

Who among us hasn't made a tiny math error?

Sam Bankman-Fried says he "misaccounted" $8 billion after some FTX customer funds were mistakenly counted twice, Bloomberg reported. The news outlet interviewed Bankman-Fried at his $30 million Bahamas penthouse after the collapse of FTX. The former billionaire – who now says he's down to his last $100,000 – showed Bloomberg's Zeke Faux a spreadsheet of FTX and Alameda's accounts.

Won't you feel sorry for this poor guy who is down to his last few notes of cash? He just might be forced to sell his $30 million property. So sad!


No love for romaine hearts

Life in the cold North:

“I don’t even know the price until it shows up,” he said.

In the last few weeks, Dean has considered himself lucky if he gets a quarter of the cases he normally needs, and actually, that’s fine, because at these prices — $6.99 for a head of iceberg, $14.99 for a bag of three romaine hearts — nobody’s buying it anyway.

That's some very expensive water thanks to the supply shock in California.


You'll drink water and you'll be happy!

No fooling Betty:

Betty Henry, a consumer in London, Ont., has been using E.D Smith's Pumpkin Pie Filling for 50 years to make pies for Thanksgiving. She says she noticed a difference in the filling as soon as she opened the can this year.

The pie filling used to list vegetable oil as the third-largest share in the ingredient list.

In the new version of the product that Henry used this year, vegetable oil had been moved to sixth place. And taking its place at third? Water.

The company watered down the product and then, to add insult to injury, spiked the price by 50% in under two years.

The price of the pumpkin pie filling has increased by more than 50 per cent since January 2021. At that time, the pie filling was $3.99. In October 2022, it had gone up to $6.03 at Loblaws stores in Toronto. Both versions of the can were 540 millilitres.

It's understandable when businesses have to increase prices. Shrinking the product packaging has become standard practice. Still, uncool. However, boosting the water content while keeping the same product name is scummy.


Exceeding the minimum balance

So, the banksters at JP Morgan Chase must have known about the Ponzi scheme but didn't do anything about it.


Debt is not your friend

Highest inflation in 40 years + job losses + increasingly higher interest rates + crypto crash + stock market bubble pop + real estate downturn = PAIN


Avoid the cheap stuff

Big Sugar is definitely using cheaper and lower-quality ingredients in their bite-sized candies. I've noticed that with M&Ms. At first, I thought that it was unsatisfactory because of the small amount but nope; it just tastes off. I avoid almost all Hershey's. You couldn't pay me to eat that American garbage.

Various Japanese (Royce), Swiss (Lindt), German (Ritter Sport), and British (Cadbury) chocolates taste so much better.


How to destroy a country

What's better than importing one million people every three years? Opening the gates to one million every two years, of course!

The federal government is planning a massive increase in the number of immigrants entering Canada, with a goal of seeing 500,000 people arrive each year by 2025.

Immigration Minister Sean Fraser revealed the new targets on Tuesday, saying the move was necessary to ensure Canada's economic prosperity as the country struggles with a labour shortage resulting in 1 million job vacancies.

It's simple economics. The job vacancies are because of low wages. Canada is a big place. The average young guy is not going to move to a different part of the country for a job that pays close to minimum wage. However, there are hundreds of millions of people in the world who would be more than happy to make $15/hour in Canada.

The average house close to Toronto (45 min. car ride, 90 min. train one-way) costs $1 million. Young people here can't afford to pay $5,000 a month for a mortgage for decades. However, new immigrants don't complain as ten of them live in a 3-bedroom apartment while each pays $200/month in rent.

The real estate situation will get worse in the long run as demand escalates while the supply can't keep up. Oh, and that's just the economics downside. The whole cultural enrichment aspect can't be denied.

Most Canadians understand this at some level. That's why they oppose increasing immigration. Unfortunately, nobody in the political spectrum stands up to this nonsense of inviting hordes of warring foreigners.


The pain isn't over

When everything is powered by debt (mortgage, stonks, crypto), then a spectacular rise in interest rates takes it all down.


PR stunt

Imagine if a car dealership froze the prices of their cheap models for three months. Would that be newsworthy?

Loblaw (L.TO) is freezing prices on more than 1,500 No Name products until Jan. 31, as skyrocketing inflation continues to drive up grocery bills for Canadians.

Canada's biggest grocer announced Monday that it will freeze prices of all its private label No Name items until the end of January.

So, one of the largest grocery chains in Canada won't increase price of some products for three months. Since the beginning of 2020, I've noticed that the price of an average item in a grocery store goes up twice a year. So, basically, every six months, there's a price increase. Of course, they don't all go up at once but that's the general time frame. Freezing prices for three months doesn't sound that impressive.

All Loblaws has done is set themselves up for a huge price hike in February and informed us all about it in advance.


Creepy Joe fail

Biden stomps on domestic oil production, empties the strategic reserve by half, and then begs the Saudis to delay their cuts. What a clown.

A bombshell statement from Saudi Arabia states the Biden administration reached out and pleaded with them to delay the OPEC deal to cut oil production until after the midterms.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud said Thursday morning that US officials 'suggested' postponing the decision to reduce output by two million barrels a day by a month until after November 8, when millions of Americans will cast their ballots.


Always have options

That's the major downside of a debt-powered lifestyle. Remember reading a story about a guy who kept on buying more and bigger as his income went up. He moved his wife and children to a better house with a larger mortgage. Got a newer car; wife got her own. Eventually wife quit her job to stay home. More toys, lavish vacations. The problem? Zero savings and insane debt.

He lost his job in 2008. Sold her car. Then, his own. Couldn't pay mortgage. Moved in with the in-laws. He went from a $200,000 salary to working part-time at Walmart. He had the option of wiggle room but he wasted it.


The Diversity has spoken!

Can't the UN find smarter coloreds?

They can always bury a few benjamins and wait a couple of months for the money to start falling.


Science!

Vox Day:

The evidence against the Covid vaccines is on the verge of becoming undeniable by the mainstream. Between the excess deaths, the declining fertility, and the hard evidence being provided by embalmers around the world, the lethal nature of the vaxx is on the verge of being conclusively proven.

I heard about a young, healthy police officer who died suddenly just one day after his third vaxx shot. Who knows how many died directly because of the vaxxes? We can get an approximate number from the excess deaths.

Let's see how many NPCs wake up and realize that they gleefully and repeatedly jabbed themselves with poison.


Pay attention to tax rates

Yeah. Here, in the largest province of Canada, if one earns an annual income of $66,000, then the income tax amount would be $12,191. That's a 18.5% tax rate.

Instead of income, if a rich guy got $66,000 worth of "Canadian eligible dividends" from his investments, then his total tax amount would be ... $71. That's a 0.1% tax rate.

All this can be easily calculated but most stupid Canadians would still push for higher income tax rates.


The Dismal Minister

Nobody is going to halt the fixed costs of businesses: rent, insurance, property taxes, necessary utilities, basic maintenance, increased loan payments thanks to lockdowns and high interest rates, etc.

The stunned reaction of the interviewer says it all. Let's see how long it takes before they make nice with Putin.


Just add sugar

It's still bizarre for me to see how so many people in America and Canada consume so much sugar to start their day. I still remember being shocked when I was introduced to pancakes drenched in maple syrup for breakfast. Intensely sweet!


Perverse incentives

After the partial debt forgiveness, the scammers will take out even larger loans. The fraud will intensify. The same logic applied to the past immigration amnesties. It lead to greater illegal immigration; the illegal aliens were logically gambling on another blanket amnesty for themselves and their families.
