Default Quebec Based Medicago Closing after Taking $173 million Tax Dollars

Wow, the Liberal investments in Quebec just keep rolling along, no end to tax $$$ when it comes to Quebec. Of course this is just a drop in the bucket of the $35 billion or so already reported that was wasted during Covid, the number is climbing faster than sparkle socks private jet.

His bank accounts are likely to get frozen if he does.

Taxed to the hilt and it still doesn't make a dent in the exponentially growing deficit. If we didn't pay taxes it wouldn't make much difference at this point in time. Are we even servicing the interest nowadays? Canada and most other countries are basically insolvent If it were a business the note would have been called and the doors would have been closed a long long time ago.

Yeah right, Look what happened to the preacher, who supported the convoy..
And what about Donald Trump, for insiting his followers..
Or even expressing ones self by using the "F" word with asteriks
But it's OK if you have the power......what is it they say about absolute power
Hmm, gotta wonder where it stops....
Will this get me a warning... lol.

I don't agree with him, he's been a long term Rabble Rouser, but you cant argue he's getting a bum rap, the video of his arrest is right up there with other cases of police brutality.

Ya I agree people that sing Christmas corals outside city hall and give food to the homeless are everything that's wrong with Canada.

Every time the news spotlights another large company going bankrupt I cringe, because I know a bunch of execs are going to get a hefty bonus before they shut the doors.
And I am forced to help pay for that bonus.
