    Default NDP cancelling PC Mortgage Tax Hike

    Well good news for new home buyers. Hopefully people still have jobs to buy homes.

    Oh, don't worry about that. Everyone is "moving to Saskatchewan" anyways.

    The PCs introduced/proposed so many new tax and fee hikes that cancelling half of them will make the NDP look like far-right conservatives.

    100% of $1 = $1

    $1 + 100% = $2
    $1 + 200% = $3
    ...
    $1 + 600% = $7

    Either their English or their Math is wrong. If the math is correct then they need to stop calling it a 600% increase and start calling it 600% of the existing cost.

    Oops I was going on the assumption their English is wrong.

    So yes, an increase of 600% means the final amount is 7 times the original (100% + 600% = 700% = 7 times as large).

    To be fair, a very common mistake in semantics.

    Unless you're in charge of press material for, say, a political party, I don't think anybody's gonna blame you for that one, haha.

    NDP should assign Thomas Dang as their Finance Minister.

    Young candidates in Edmonton, which is now widely expected to be an NDP rout, include Thomas Dang, 20, a computer science student at the University of Alberta who is running in Edmonton South West and writes a blog about provincial politics

    Holy fuck, no kidding.

    Take a poll this time next year and not one single person will have moved. I bet if you could get the truth from them, only half the "movers" voted.

    Guess no one read the date of the article. Seems like an election promise not a guarentee
