An average $200-a-year individual tax cut won’t even buy a coffee a day. But collectively....?

What is becoming increasingly clear is that Canada’s slightly used Conservative government has no interest in 'using tax cut money collectively to do good'. They are much too busy managing the public relations of a war, shutting out the media and playing politics.

And while they play politics — fencing with each other over who is the sharpest politician in the lot — another child’s sense of wonder is dimmed by poverty because government chose tax cuts over action.

And that is the whole problem. We have a federal government that doesn’t believe in government, and so most days are spent dismantling and diminishing government as a force of change.
