Net-zero is OK for teachers, regular healthcare providers and the remaining public sector workers but not for important friends who do favours for Premier Photo Op. For example, and this is but one of course, check out Howard Waldner’s tough road.

Waldner, by the way has enjoyed a 42% salary increase over the past 5 years, moving his salary before expense from $312,000 to $442,000. During that time, his annual expenses have ranged from $29,683 to $51,000. My, those business lunches are pricey!
