Think of it from the Mill Street owners’ perspective. You can continue working your butt off to hopefully make a living, or you can take a big fat cheque and run. If you were in that situation, what would you do?
I love that a small business owner created a great product and reap the rewards of selling his brand. That’s the whole purpose of starting a small business: so you can one day sell it and retire.

The student loan thing is interesting.
I’m 43 and have been working at a high paying job for 19 years. I have large amounts of money saved up. ($300,000 ish)
So, I guess I could quit my job so I have zero income, get some student loans, and then putter around keeping my income below $25,000 until I retire with a great CPP plan that they’re going to create.
This is what Canadians voted for. Free ride off the backs of others.
Oh, and I’ll legally smoke weed the whole time, I guess. He promised, right?

The problem is: too many students go to university to party and delay working for 4 years, without any thought about building the prerequisites for a career. Then when they can’t get a job they blame “the system” instead of their lack of foresight. And now we want to reward those who waste their university education?
Canada wasn’t in a hole to begin with, anymore than the middle class was being left behind, but a strong, vibrant country with a stable economy. Too bad Trudeau chose to lie, fear monger and speak half-truths to get elected, and now is showing his arrogance in suggesting that this country only now has a chance to be great, just because he and the liberals have been chosen to run the government of this country. Expect to see more of this arrogance and credit taking in the near future.
That is just you Projecting
Read the comments section on any website and you’ll eventually come to someone telling us about the future and what other people’s motives are. This is fine, we all do it: we look at someone else and say “I bet they like to smell their own farts” or something to that effect. Perhaps not about their farts. Let’s put anything about the anus behind us and say that we speculate about the intents and habits of others, sometimes to be complementary “I bet you leave thank-you cards for the Refuse collectors!” to the insulting “I wouldn’t trust you to sit straight on the toilet”
Sometimes, though we look at someone else and say “given free reign, that asshole would run roughshod over the future of every man, woman and child in [ your country here] ”
