From the inspired folks at Hamilton350 comes this video:
During Open Streets in Hamilton a few inspired Conservatives asked people to complement the $1.4 billion in annual taxpayer-funded subsidies to the oil industry with money from their own pocket. This seems appropriate since they were already paying about $40 each per year in tax dollars anyway. Why not match this generous Conservative contribution to the dirty fuel business? Sadly, most Hamiltonians weren’t happy with giving handouts to the wealthiest industry on the planet.
When most Hamiltonians declined to support us with money we asked them if they would write a ‘thank you’ note to Stephen Harper. That didn’t go as planned either.
