The other side of the equalization coin

Ottawa Sun.

The Ontario Chamber of Commerce yesterday released the second phase of its study on fiscal imbalance it says is driving Ontario to become a poorer-than-average province.

Chamber president Len Crispino warned that Ontario's prosperity is eroding as it pays out $23 billion more to the feds than it gets back.

How about eliminating the system entirely? Whoever thought that paying provinces to stay economic basket cases would be a smart idea deserves a smack. Paying people/provinces to make silly decisions just leads to lots of silly decisions. Making them bear the cost of their foolish choices will almost inevitably lead to better choices in the future.
