    Fantastic show Tim & all. I own my own small biz & work in a Union for a day job, I’m so confused…..lol
    I love your attitude on the suject, so me a better product & the 6 month trial, very good points. Best part was the carbon tax segment, I now have some ammo when that conversation come up again. Perfect sense to push it back on to the manufacturers when we have no choice. One critique of this episode, is whomever was in the background making comments, it would have been nice to hear her. (Kat?) Maybe Mike her up and add or mute in post. As always, a bunch of nuggets in this one Tim, thanks for doing it.

always get into trouble when I talk about politics. But this week I just couldn't resist. There are big changes afoot in Canadian politics that I just had to comment on. I invited Julie Kwiecinski, the Director of Provincial Affairs, Ontario at the Canadian Federation of Independent Business onto the show this week. The new Ontario government is changing the way municipalities contract construction companies making it easier for non-union companies to get contracts. We talk about why that's a good change for businesses like Stadia. We also debate the effectiveness of a carbon tax. I argue that it's manufactures not consumers that should have to bear the brunt of reducing our carbon footprint. Not everyone is going to like this conversation but it is going to get you thinking!
