You know with all the talk about billions of dollars being wasted, I wondered how other parts of the world viewed money. So here is the province of Bali and what are they talking about? Eradicating poverty! Wait. What? Yoh! WTF!
Hey, I know what you’re saying. Canada is a first world country – there’s no poverty in Canada. People get free healthcare for crying out loud! I beg to differ. In fact so does the group Canada Without Poverty. Check out their website here.
I guess I am just trying to draw the contrast between 1st world and 3rd world countries and how they think. We talk about 1 billion dollars being wasted here or 100 million being lost there but unless we start to realize the social, economic and personal impact caused by that it does not hit home. Bali is spending 1 billion to try and eradicate poverty. In Ontario, the Liberals spent 1 billion on nothing.
