Vecchiato's Voice - What To Do With Your $100 Carbon Tax Rebate?
I received the following information about the rebate checks in a forwarded email which is obviously tongue in cheek. It's good food for thought and can really show how patriotic we as Canadians are.
So, how should you spend your carbon tax rebate?
If you spend that money at WalMart, the money will go to the U.S.
If you spend it on gas, it will go to the Middle East or Alberta.
If you purchase a computer, it will go to Taiwan or Mainland China.
If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to California, Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala.
If you purchase a good car, it will go to Japan or Korea or Europe.
If you purchase useless junk, it will go to China and none of it will help the B.C. economy.
The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and marijuana, since these are the only products still produced here in B.C.
Thank you for your help and support,
Gordon Campbell, Premier of British Columbia
