What can $3,900,000,000 (BILLION) buy?
The Canadian Federal Government agreed to give the supply-managed animal-ag regimes (which include dairy, chicken, turkey and egg farmers) $3,900,000,000 of our hard-earned tax payer dollars.
The average Canadian dairy farms' net worth is $5,000,000 (million).
The average dairy farmers' net income is $160,000. *StatsCan figures, 2016
Let's see what $3,900,000,000 would buy when put towards something other than more profits for animal farmers, such as Long Term Care beds in Ontario.
The basic cost of a LTC bed in Ontario is $22,176/year. *Ontario.ca, 2018
$3,900,000,000 divided by $22,176 = 175,866 (paid bed spaces/year)
Currently there are 26,495 people in Ontario looking for a space.
175,866 divided by 26,495 means that every person looking for a space would have it paid for, for almost 8 years!
26,495 people could find a safe place to live, a nutritious diet and proper medical care (for 8 years!), freeing up valuable, more expensive hospital beds for back-logged surgeries and all this wouldn't cost tax payers a dime more!!
Think of all the jobs created for PSW's and other health-care practioners as well.
All of this is possible if our elected officials weren't actively giving animal farmers more padding for their profits.
Find your MP from the easy search tool below and reach out and tell them that this blatant pandering will come to an end. Their jobs depend on it.
