"How would your life change if you could live in your own home, on your own property, with no rent, no mortgage, very low property tax and no more overpriced utility costs, all for less than $50 per month?"
We are small groups of people living in Ontario Canada that are coming together to create small pocket communities of environmentally friendly, sustainable and affordable luxurious small housing solutions that dramatically simplifies and enriches every part of our daily lives.
Ontario at bottom for good jobs, social spending:
While Ontario's rich are getting richer, the province now has the highest proportion of minimum wage workers in the country — while social spending is now the lowest in Canada.
If only you could stop losing 50% of your hard earned income to governments that will spend it and more, as they see fit!
You don't get any value for it. All you do is finance a layer of society that has figured out where the free ride is.
It's a scam and nothing more. Our lives carry-on in spite of these political people, not because of them!
The systematic destruction of the Canadian way of life is happening all around us, and yet most people have no idea what is happening. Once upon a time in Canada, if you were responsible and hard working you could get a good paying job that could support a middle class lifestyle for an entire family even if you only had a high school education. Things weren’t perfect, but generally almost everyone in the entire country was able to take care of themselves without government assistance. We worked hard, we played hard, and our seemingly boundless prosperity was the envy of the entire planet. But over the past several decades things have completely changed. We shipped millions of good paying jobs overseas, we piled up the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world, and we kept electing politicians that had absolutely no concern for the long-term future of this nation whatsoever. So now good jobs are in very short supply, we are drowning in an ocean of red ink, the middle class is rapidly shrinking and dependence on the government is at an all-time high. Even as we stand at the precipice of the next great economic crisis, we continue to make the same mistakes. In the end, all of us are going to pay a very great price for decades of incredibly foolish decisions. Of course a tremendous amount of damage has already been done.
The poorest 40 percent of all Canadians now spend more than 50 percent of their incomes just on food and housing.
For those Canadians that don’t own a home, 50 percent of them spend more than a third of their incomes just on rent.
McDonald’s “Dollar Menu" now includes items that cost as much as 5 dollars
The price of ground beef has doubled since 2009.
Incomes fell for the bottom 80 percent of all income earners in Canada during the 12 months leading up to June 2014.
At this point, more than 50 percent of all Canadian workers bring home less than $30,000 a year in wages.
After adjusting for inflation, median household income has fallen by nearly $5,000 since 2007.
The “typical Canadian household” is now worth 36 percent less than it was worth a decade ago.
About half of all Canadians do not put a single penny out of their paychecks into savings.
About 62 percent of all Canadians are currently living paycheck to paycheck.
About 33 percent of all Canadians with student loans are currently behind on their student loan debt repayments.
The rate of homeownership in Canada has been declining for seven years in a row, and it is now the lowest that it has been in 20 years.
For each of the past six years, more businesses have closed in Canada than have opened. Prior to 2008, this had never happened before!
If you have no debt at all, and you also have 10 dollars in your wallet, then you are wealthier than 25 percent of all Canadians.
On top of everything else, the average Canadian must work from January 1st to the 6th of June just to pay all federal, provincial and local taxes.
Most people are not in the bleak situation they find themselves in, because they want to be. Rather, they are victims of our long-term economic collapse. When the next major economic crisis strikes, the suffering in this country is going to go to unprecedented levels. As we enter that time, we are going to need a whole lot more love and compassion than we are exhibiting right now. As a nation, we have made decades of incredibly bad decisions. As a result, we are experiencing bad consequences which are going to become increasingly more severe. Smart Communities Ontario is exploring a more sensable, sustainable and secure way of living through the adoption of tiny house communities that will minimize the difficulty we all face today and will tomorrow.
