It's a test program, and we are not in it. If it works fine, if not, no biggie. You never miss what you never had.
One thing is certain, nobody's going to get rich off of it, but it should benefit the govt and the people to get rid of the social system behemoth and bureaucracy in favor or something like this.
The overhead is outlandish.

Free money will not put food banks out of business.

It's nothing to get excited about.
In most of the larger towns, heating is a byproduct of industry and is included in rent.
Rent is dirt cheap here relative to other countries.
We have electric heat, but the plant is hydroelectric downtown on the river, just a short walk.
The bldg we live in is so well insulated, double pane windows, between our computers and burning candles we never even run the heat.
We are -18c (-0.4f) as I type this and we haven't ad the heat on yet this year.
I have to say it's chilly in here this morning though. chuckle.gif

There's no wind whatsoever so it doesn't feel that cold if you're dressed properly. 0 degrees and high winds feels way colder actually.

Yup, I'm burned out on the snow too.
We're headed in a positive direction for the weekend.
Temps around freezing.
Amazing how warm freezing feels when it's been -20 c (-4 f)

Nothing is free anywhere.
It doesn't seem right to give a millionaire 500 + a month when you give an unemployed pot smoking bum the same.

No there's no free money, but this field test is for unemployed people anyway, not millionaires. Keep your panties on.

I agree give the pot smoker the millionaires share so they can afford better weed!
