Question #8
Former Conservative Senator Hugh Segal has advanced a case for a Guaranteed Income concept for Canadians. It works like this with some variation from International pollster Glen P. Robbins. Every Canadian over the age of 18 with citizenship of at least 10 consecutive years would be eligible for a monthly Canadian Citizenship Dividend (CCD) of $1,300 per month, with $300 of that deducted for taxes. Persons earning $100,000 per year or more gross income in the previous 5 years would not be eligible, but could become eligible later if circumstances change and eligibility requirements are met. . Recipients would be permitted to earn an equal amount above this base dividend of $1,300 per month, but any income beyond would be deducted dollar for dollar from the original CCD amount. Federal and provincial disability and welfare programs and the massive bureaucracy that deals with these social programs would be removed. The concept is designed to create a freer and more functional society, not realign social welfare. (127 repeats) (modest 'push') Do you generally support this type of libertarian concept to reward citizenship and reduce social welfare costs of federal and provincial government bureaucracies?
Yes    50.11 %
No    37.5 %
Question #9
The Bloc Quebecois is a Canadian federal party with candidates running only in that Province. Only Ontario and Quebec possess enough federal seats to be eligible to run candidates in those two provinces. In your opinion should Canadians living in other provinces be permitted to register & run candidates in federal elections so long as they register a candidate in every riding in their province like the Bloc Quebecois is able to in the Province of Quebec?
Yes    53 %
No    37 %
