Times are tough all over. That's why we all have to tighten our belts.
Especially our Native neighbours. God knows they've been living high on the hog long enough. Just listen to Atleo whining about clean water and infrastructure... get over yourself, Shawn!
We're all in this together...
Or maybe not. Just this past week International Trade Minister Ed Fast found a few millions to spread around among the lucky participants of the Global Opportunities for Associations Program. Right Honourable Ed made the announcement at one of the Linamar plants in Guelph. Linamar itself will be a beneficiary of the program due to its membership in the Automotive Parts Manufacturers' Association.
Right Honourable Ed's announcement came a month after Linamar announced record Q2 financials.
Sales up 9% to over $900 millions in the quarter.
Profit up almost 40% to over $90 millions...
Yup, these folks need a government hand-out for sure!
But let's not be too harsh with the Harperites; they are merely doing God's work on earth.
Just like the Good Book says right there in the Gospel of Mathew, chapter 25, verse 29; "For unto everyone that hath, shall be given, and he shall have abundance, but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath."
Carry on, Ed.
Sorry about your luck, Shawn.
