Forty-five minutes with Green leader Frank de Jong

The leader of the Green Party of Ontario, Frank de Jong, visited the Citizen today to talk to the editorial board. Audio of the discussion is here. It was a good, brisk session and de Jong did a pretty good job explaining the principles of Green-style tax-shifting, among other things, talking about privatizing public wealth (by giving away natural resources to industry) and socializing private wealth (by taxing production and income). If you’re reading this blog, the discussion is worth a listen.
