Canada was lucky, and I'm not convinced the $12B 'stimulus' was really all that necessary either; more of a subconsience thing.

But the fact is that there SHOULD be $12 Billion that Cities could use for SUSTAINABLE projects (such as LRT, or an LRT Manufacturing Plant) which we don't even have an opportunity to use as the 'Stimulus' was clearly meant as a PR stunt with a ginormous dollar amount attached.

That 20% that was used can be seen right now filling John Street with tar, paying those who already had well-paying, unionized jobs and neglecting those who actually lost jobs due to the downturn.

The Canadian Stimulus Package was, and still is, a joke. But hey, at least King & Main Sts' potholes are all filled... OH WAIT, the roads are still sh*t!
