On October 20, 2000, the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario, and the City of Toronto each announced a commitment of $500 million to fund the TWRI.
Accordingly, the three governments have spent, to date, $1.26 billion and the study estimates that this direct investment on public lands generated impacts as follows: $3.2 billion of Canadian economic output, 16,200 full time years of employment and $622 million of tax revenues to government ($348 million to federal, $237 million to provincial, and $36 million to municipal).
After 2009–10, annual increases in program spending declined sharply — from 12.0 per cent in the depth of the recession, when strong stimulus and supports were needed, to 4.5 per cent and then 0.9 per cent in 2011–12, and the past year saw the first decline in more than a decade.
The government of Ontario already spends less per resident delivering public services than any other province, and is working internally to achieve even greater cost effectiveness while continuing to offer quality, timely service. Reflecting measures to improve efficiency, Ontario’s per capita program spending in 2012–13 was $8,311, which was the lowest among the provinces.
en.wikipedia.org... So under law a Corporation is a legal fiction and so are you if you have a birth certificate created by a Corporation ie Canada or what ever Province that created it .Its a scam created by the Law Society that we are not a member of but who creates laws that they then impose on the citizens of said Corporations .They use a language called legalize and it's in the language that keeps us from not knowing what is really happening while they steal money from us . well it's actually their money that they create out of nothing and steal our labor .All with our consent .
A corporation is a separate legal entity that has been incorporated either directly through legislation or through a registration process established by law. Incorporated entities have legal rights and liabilities that are distinct from their employees, shareholders, and members, and may conduct business as either a profit-seeking business or not-for-profit. Early incorporated entities were established by charter (i.e. by an ad hoc act granted by a monarch or passed by a parliament or legislature). Most jurisdictions now allow the creation of new corporations through registration. Registered corporations have legal personality and are owned by shareholders whose liability is limited to their investment. Shareholders do not typically actively manage a corporation; shareholders instead elect or appoint a board of directors to control the corporation in a fiduciary capacity

Ford slammed the proposal put forward by Anne Golden’s Transit Panel to either sphase in a 10-cent gas tax increase to fund transit or raise it by five cents a litre, hike corporate taxes by 0.5% and boost the HST by 0.5%.
“Oh my goodness, it is going to kill us,” Ford said Thursday. “It is not fair to the taxpayers and we’ll be fighting it all the way.”
“They put these fancy task forces together and it is a no-brainer, all they do is raise taxes, raise gas taxes, it is unacceptable.”
Ford encouraged the provincial government to “find efficiencies.”
“There is a bloated government at the province and as far as we’re concerned there is waste here at City Hall and there is waste in the federal government,” he said.
TTC CEO Andy Byford said he’s “agnostic about where the money comes from.”
“The TTC does need more funding, it needs sustainable funding — we are the third largest transit network in North America and we have by far the lowest subsidy,” Byford said.
. . . the revenue base should be as broad as possible.
“One that is shared by as many people or as many businesses as possible to keep the load as light as possible on as many people as possible,” Kelly said.
He acknowledged there is a “popular feeling” that enough savings could be found in all three levels of government to fund transit.
“That’s not an unreasonable perspective but it is one that hasn’t been explored and I wouldn’t want to rely on that as a full source of funding or the majority source of funding,” Kelly said.

"Accounting firms have been universally declining to endorse cost estimates being used by New Brunswick political parties in their election platforms, instead appearing to suggest voters take what they are being promised with a grain of salt.
That's not what Finance Minister Blaine Higgs had hoped when he introduced legislation last spring to force political parties to honestly cost their election promises.
The province's Fiscal Transparency and Accountability Act required a price tag for each commitment and then the submission of those numbers to an accounting firm for review.
"We want accounting firms to be part of that," Higgs told reporters last May. "We want an accounting firm to present it as 'the assumptions are real - it's credible'."
But accounting firms have declined to endorse anything put in front of them by any party during the election, offering no guidance to voters on which promises make financial sense and which are political fantasy.
Deloitte LLP has reviewed over 50 campaign promises submitted to it by Progressive Conservatives but declared none "credible" as Higgs had envisaged. www.cbc.ca...
