cbay: the selling of Canada

Stephen Harper announced last week that after the election, he would look at deregulation and privatization as a central mandate for ‘his’ government.

I’ve decided that we should call this ‘cbay’, but it would be quite opposite of ebay, where consumers buy things, based on the highest bid.

Instead, cbay would focus on ways to sell off prime Canadian assets like health care, the AECL, the Canadian Wheat Board and other organizations that help Canadians fight off rapacious greed in the world AT THE LOWEST POSSIBLE PRICE.  All you’d have to do is be a mega-international co and find a way in to the inner circle (assuming you’re not there already).

Canadians, who have invested billions in our public infrastructure, would be left holding the bag.  Woohoo!!
