Toque Taxing - 'cause it's the Canadian Way, Eh?

Posted on Fri, Dec 18, 2009 at 10:29 AM

Institute a Hat Tax. Afterall, most bodyheat is lost out of our heads, right? Cold season is amongst us and there's that scary H1N1. Wearing a toque could save lives and make society better for everyone, right? One less cold or sick person for society to deal with. Apparently, ticketing people is now society's way of making communities better, safer and more efficient, so charge $50 for non-compliance. Even if it's not cold or snowing, the laws the law, right? You should know better. Go without a hat and get a ticket? It's your own stupid fault. You knew about the law. Compliance isn't that difficult. Clearly we as a society are incapable of accepting the consequences of our actions. Say getting sick from lack of toque wearing or deciding you'd better go dig out that toque from the mounds of snow it got burried in when it got left behind. No, health, safety and efficiency is too important to take a chance on individual accountability. The Hat-Tax is clearly the answer.
