Ted, do you believe that most Canadians are generous people?

If you do, then there should be no concern whether or not society can deliver care to those with limited means.

If you don't think people are generous, then you are condoning theft in order to satisfy your conscience.

The second scenario also leaves the door open for anyone to steal anything, as long as they have a good enough reason in their own mind.

By moving back to a society in which people give from their hearts, rather than from fear of prosecution, we regain what it means to help others in need.

The bitterness that comes along with "having" to pay our taxes, is replaced with feelings of pride and joy in being able to share our wealth with others.

I have faith that most people want to do the right thing, so that is why I believe the free market will help us get there faster.
