Robin Hood Tax

24 Hours For The Tax: robinhoodtax.ca

There a literally millions of reasons to support this tax. And only really 2 not to: 1: you are rich enough to make financial transactions on a regular basis that would be taxed. 2: you believe the rich people telling you that it is a bad idea. The rich don’t get rich by looking out for others. They get rich by exploiting people to work for them in some way, and not compensating them appropriately for their work. It really is that simple. This tax really would make a big difference. There really is a chance that it could be put into law. It really is worth your time to take part in the actions to support it.

Yeah! We finally have proper garbage pickup. I don’t sort the recycling, I can compost the kitchen and yard waste. It has wheels. And it’s unionized.

Now we have caught up to what my German friends had 20 years ago. We’re SO progressive. CANADA, WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS!!!
