    A bank CEO mad he’ll lose a bit of money? Cry my a fucking river, you leech. And leave us out of your laissez faire nonsense, while you’re at it.

      Not even lose - still get heaps of money, but slightly smaller heaps, which is of course a huge blow to the economy rich fucks, and as such is completely unacceptable.

    It would be really nice if the PostMedia group would get a little bit more subtle about the fact Corporate Canada is balls-deep in their ass on the regular.

    For people who’ve had the switch flipped in their heads that labor generates all wealth, which is being distributed unequally, this is just confirmation that it was the right move.

    This has to be one of the weakest bunch of whining arguments from any of the bankers, executives, etc. He’s not even saying it will do any damage, just that things won’t improve. How does an increase in foreign investment improve our standard of living? By sucking all the profits offshore?

    Oh no, what will they do with the smaller amount of money to fuel their unsustainable standard of luxury while the poors starve a little less?

    With all these wealthy folks coming out in strong opposition to this, I am certain we are on the right path, and this is great for Canadians.
