“Have Not Province”

Nova Scotia raises $7.2B in tax every year.
Nova Scotia pays $7.6B in tax every year to Ottawa.
Nova Scotia has a budget of $10.8B, while raising $14.8B.

Have not province? Or, serf & slave to Canada?

Nova Scotia is often described by Canadians as a taker.
Really, what kind of federation are you running here, Canada?

Is Oregon a taker too? How about Texas?

24 states receive more in Fed revenues (32%) than Nova Scotia. We’ve lost our Senate, our Cities, our School Boards, our Health Boards, all under the guise of finances, for what? To satiate Canadian sociopathy?

6 states have less people than Nova Scotia (Alaska, Delaware, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming), plus the District of Washington DC.

13 States have a lower population density than Nova Scotia (Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming)

Nova Scotia is clearly in the wrong Federation as a small state. Joseph Howe was right, Canada’s the worst thing to have ever happened to us.
