It appears that our supply of good people is rapidly disappearing.  Otherwise how do these bottom feeders get elected?

I wonder if there isn't some aspect here of no real consensus, like so 
many other things, so nothing actually happens, or is intended to. 
Like so many other things. Is this a smoke & mirrors presentation to 
industry to say "See, we're trying."

All it takes for evil to flourish is for good (wo)men to do nothing.

Somehow, I don't think 'nothing' will happen. Especially as this is 
out, before the legislation is even introduced, and given past reactions.

It just bites, again, that public consultations (smoke & mirrors) 
occurred, and were ignored, again.

Let alone, did someone not say in the list at some point, that the 
Liberals also had their own version of essentially the same thing, 
which also died.

Which is to say, even if an election were called and the Liberals got 
in (with a majority), we'd still be in this same situation?
