VIDEO: Politicians Should Take A Pay Cut & Stop Decimating Small Businesses

People have poured their hearts and their souls into building their businesses. Allowing them to be crushed on the whim of politicians, while big box stores go on operating, is unacceptable.

We continue to see the destruction of many small businesses across Canada, at the same time as big box stores are filled with people.

This isn’t happening because people are choosing it, it’s happening because politicians are forcing it to happen.

The more governments fail, the more power they are demanding, and they continue to impose often absurd rules that allow internationally-owned big box stores to operate, while crushing Canadian small businesses.

The politicians also aren’t sharing in the sacrifice they impose on others, with their pay and perks still intact as their rules decimate the livelihoods of others.

You can see my thoughts on this in the video below:

“Instead of decimating small businesses while benefitting big box stores, politicians should be showing some humility, dramatically cutting their own pay, and realizing that they are vastly overstepping their authority.”

It’s time we stood up to the destruction being done on our lives. I was hoping Kenny was going to tell the feds to get stuffed but I see he cratered to. If we do not get active and take back control we can kiss our freedom goodbye. If we let them keep pushing without fighting back it will become war, a war we will have a hard time winning. They are starting to choke off the food supply and now that so many depend on their hand outs it will soon be past the point of no return. Sound… Read more »


At a minimum, Spencer, the Governments should level the playing field. No food seating at Costco, just take out. No clothing sales. Nothing that the closed small stores sell. Food and pharmacy only. Wally’s World? Same thing. Just the necessities, and limit the number of customers at a time.

Pay cut? How’s about no pay for some such as our Finance Minister Freeland. No pay until she tables a budget. However, that would require her to know what she is doing in that department. Could be never!
