This is fucking stupid. Why are they doing this?
That was my face when I switched on Power and Politics an hour ago.
This is the same rubbish as when we bought shares in GM. Sinking ships sink for a reason and I don't want any part in keeping them afloat.
That $4.5B could have gone a long way to starting to take mental health issues seriously, for example. But nooooo, we'd rather spend it on exporting raw sludge without adding any value to it to keep alive an industry that is both uncompetitive and unecological. It's ok, I'll still go to work tomorrow and hand over my fair share to help bankroll this waste of my sweat, don't you worry.
Man, that money could have went to retraining oil patch workers so they could do something that doesn't have among the highest costs in the world.
Maybe the profits will go to subsidising beer Canada-wide so the buck-a-beer party Ford dreams of can go big.
Honestly, this is one of those "so why do I pay taxes?" situations.
