"The tax burden on wages has eased in most of the world's industrial countries this decade, including here, but Canada is among a minority where most of the relief has gone to high-income earners and the least to lower-income workers, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development."

LINK (http://www.financialpost.com/story.html?id=396698)

Now, if one were to listen to this august board, one would be led to believe this only happens int he U.S. It is a source of pride for Canadians to decry how the U.S. economic system is so harsh on those less well-off.

Well...seems another Canadian myth has found its rightful home: the garbage.

""But in a significant minority of countries, tax reforms have mainly benefited high-income groups," it said in the report, citing Canada, and a handful of other industrial nations, including the U.S.

The point is...Canadians always hop on that moral high horse they are so fond of, to criticize the U.S. for any number of things.Of course, the only one that believes all the hot air emanating from the frozen tundra is Canadians.

Now, here it is, in black and white.

At using American hospitals when their system fails

At hiding behind the U.S. when the going gets tough

At cultural suicide, due to untenable birthrates

At higher unemployment rates

At a lower standard of living

Accusations are that Ntuyahaga ordered the Belgians to give up their weapons or be killed. They were taken to a Rwandan military base. Soldiers, believing rumors the Belgians were responsible for shooting down the president's plane, then started killing the 10 paratroopers.

General Dallaire, the UNAMIR commander, saw the developing danger. He asked Uwilingiyimana, Rwanda’s Hutu prime minister, to speak on Rwandan radio to help calm the nation. He sent 10 Belgian soldiers in U.N. blue berets to pick up Uwilingiyimana at her house.

The Belgians took gunfire at the house, and when Uwilingiyimana tried to slip out the back, the militant Hutus caught her and killed her on the spot.

Then the 10 Belgians, with U.N. advice, agreed to disarm, and the Hutus took them in trucks to Camp Kigali, a military compound. Here, a mob of Hutu soldiers attacked the Belgians.

The Hutus beat several of the Belgians to death with iron bars. A few peacekeepers ran to a cinder block hut and tried to fight off the attackers. Hours later, the last of the 10 was killed with a grenade.
