Dear Mr. Harper:
Please find below a suggestion for fixing Canada's economy.
Instead of giving billions of dollars to banks who will
squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses,
consider the following plan. You can call it the "Patriotic
There are about 10 million people over 50 years of age in the
Pay each one of them one million dollars severance for early
retirement with the following stipulations:
1) They MUST retire.
Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed.
2) They MUST buy a new car.
Ten million cars ordered - car Industry fixed.
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -
Housing Crisis fixed.
4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university -
Crime rate fixed.
5) They MUST buy $50 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week...
And there's your money back in duty/tax etc.
It can't get any easier than that!
P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of
parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and
second home allowances.
I anxiously await a positive response.
