    But to pay for it, they'll have to increase traffic fines by 500%

    Shitty idea, we already do pay more through a tiered tax system. Punishing sucess is why the wealthy choose to leave.

    I should be retired by around 2025, so maybe I wil do a free MBA to keep me busy.

    I would be supportive of subsidizing professions we acutually need. For instance, if they were to provide doctors free tuition if they were to remain in Alberta for 10 years of service after graduation instead of moving to the states - my tax dollars would be much better served.
    The tiered system is Federal. Provincially Alberta is the only province in Canada that is not tiered taxed. I do think that people that make around the 6 figure mark should not be taxed heavily for their hard work. I like your last idea, that is the type of thinking I wish our government could grasp. What those professionals pay in tax after graduating would make up for the cost of the education very quickly as well.

    However it's the reduction in taxes and cuts to allow corporations to flourish that has caused the upset in resources available for public systems. I don't feel someone making 125k a year should be taxed the same as someone making 1 mil. Thats where I think the tax system is unfair. The exponential growth of the wealthiest is absolutely huge in comparison to those that are "comfortable".

    The Liberals have taken a fall in integrity since the debate at the last federal election. How unrealistic can you be and expect people not to call your bluff. Jesus, free tuition? Keep dreaming. Subsidized? Thank you that would be more realistic.

    Exactly; a lot of people who are making more than 100K are breaking into that bracket thanks to lots of overtime... that means the hardest and most taxing work they do, the stuff that actually takes them away from their family and recreational time is getting penalized the most, how do you keep people motivated when you make them earn less and less the harder they work? It is a counter-productive... literally.

    Then again our entire society is all about benifiting those who work the least... so if you can't fight em', join em' - if they offer free tuition I would drop work and go back to study something instead.
