If I read you correctly, you’re saying that even if scrapping the LGR would save $0 per year… you’d still want to scrap it?
Anyway, you seem to be tacitly agreeing that the potential savings in scrapping the LGR are negligible… which makes scrapping the LGR a purely ideological act. Nice.
Do I detect a tinge of disappointment that I don’t provide a hard & fast dollar figure? After quoting you figures from other sources, which you dismissed, why ask me now to pin down the actual cost? Ask some crack journalist to investigate. Maybe (s)he’ll come up with a figure you’ll accept as valid.
And as for an “ideological act” — excuse my penchant for defining the terms some people throw around so casually. I realize “ideology” has become a dirty word in many quarters. Well, in my book, “ideology” stems from “ideas.” Excuse me for having some of my own.
Well-played, sir. Are you an MP by chance?
Thank you. No. And it’s madame.
Looking at some polling results from Angus Reid, looks like the Liberals and NDP really shot themselves in the foot with this one. More were in favour of scrapping the Registry in each area excluding Quebec. This includes Urban areas, which has been the mantra for so long that the Urban areas supported keeping the registry but it was 44% for scrapping it and 40% for keeping it. I know it’s close, but remember they were supposed to be opposite.
