Support magazines with tax cuts

The best way the government could fund Canadian magazines is through tax cuts to all Canadians.

If we didn't pay almost 50% of our income in tax, we would have more money to spend on magazines, so magazines would have a bigger marketplace. Then, magazines that produced a product that people valued would have no reason to grub for handouts. Magazines that didn't produce what people want would die a deserved death.

When the State steps in to fund cultural activities that overtaxed citizens can no longer afford, the State 'invests' in the activities it chooses - like flying bananas, canoe museums, and freeze-dried poop machines.

As both subsidies and taxes fall, magazine producers will be encouraged to produce what people want instead of government.
