J, if you're going to quote me, at least quote me properly--it's really not that hard, and it'll strengthen YOUR tenuous grasp on logic.

My point still stands: there are currently two mega-projects that will siphon millions of public dollars into speculators masquerading as profit-making corporations.

Whine on about employee wages and benefits all you'd like, but it doesn't change the fact that wages in Canada have been stagnant since the late 70s, a period in which the Canadian economy grew more than 70%.

Meanwhile, the share of private dough going to profits has been on the rise, while workers' share has declined to its lowest level on record.

Which is to say, we can discuss this topic all you'd like, J, but the reality is that wages aren't the main problem.

Worrying about the wages and benefits of thousands of fellow citizens while we a few let rent-seekers raid the cupboard is a red herring.
