If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
While it might have been preferable to have honest, responsible government we have to live in the world as it is, not as we wish it would be. So rather than expending effort earning a living, paying taxes only to have all your effort redirected to supporting Liberal friends and their clientage, a similar effort by creative, innovative people dedicated to milking their largesse would probably be more profitable. As a starting point, check out the Canadian Subsidy Directory:
It is the perfect tool for new and existing businesses, individuals, foundations and associations.This Publication contains more than 2000 direct and indirect financial subsidies, grants and loans offered by government departments and agencies, foundations, associations and organisations. In this new 2004 edition all programs are well described.The Canadian Subsidy Directory is the most comprehensive tool to start up a business, improve existent activities, set up a business plan, or obtain assistance from experts in fields such as: Industry, transport, agriculture, communications, municipal infrastructure, education, import-export, labor, construction and renovation, the service sector, hi-tech industries, research and development, joint ventures, arts, cinema, theatre, music and recording industry, the self employed, contests, and new talents.There's gold in them thar hills. Why be the last fool paying into these boondoggles rather than finding a nice inviting government teat, make yourself comfortable, and suckle it?

Don't mind if I do. I think my little photography business could use some subsidizing. I may have to make an appointment with the BDC next week as well.

Kathy, think of it as "taking back what's yours." If I sound thrilled it's because I've just realized my photo portfolio falls under the "Canadian Content" category.
Time to monetize this puppy.
