Sick of our crony gov-ment

Posted on Thu, May 16, 2013 at 1:46 PM

So, the government 'lost' 3.6 billion dollars (enough to fund the space program or cancer research for the next decade or so) and no one is trying to even look for these funds (WTF?). As of 2013 there is an estimated 35 Million people living in Canada (this number includes all age groups, not just tax-payers).

That means, by my shoddy calculations, we are each individually owed about $100.00. Of course when you factor in the unemployment rate/age of majority, it's probably a lot higher.

I am not the greatest at math, I just divided 3.6 billion by 35 million...considering all the variables, the largest of which being that a considerable percentage of the population would be either too young or too old to contribute much to public funds, $100.00 is a damn low ball number.

I wonder where it went. —Tick Tock
