Wells on equalization

Some people just have a way of saying things that just get down to business.

This means that any premier who wants Ottawa to keep collecting the GST and then hand it over to provinces no-strings-attached — say, just f'rinstance, this premier — should be mightily careful about what he wishes for. Because it's asinine for one level of government to collect taxes on behalf of another, when that level of government could instead simply clear some space and permit — nay, demand! — that the other fill it.
