and that being said, are you then prepared to pay more taxes to support the proposed increase in service delivery (I am btw…)
Absolutely, and I have unequivocally stated so in past threads, even though I already pay more in income taxes than the average Canadian individual income.
One has to be concerned though that the opportunity for corruption within our government only increases with the more money that they take in and the more services that they over-see.
A fully transparent government with open access to all political decision processes would somewhat address this concern of corruption - but thats for another thread.
I don't think corruption is limited to government, nor is it more or less likely in government. Witness the corruption that cam with privatization of prisons in the US. When profit is considered to be the ultimate motive and justification for all actions, corruption can't be too far behind. This is a small part of what feeds my distaste for private schools.

When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion.
