111,400 x 100,000

11 billion dollars. That’s my sunshine  calculation: 111,400 people in Ontario x (earning at least) $100,000.

That’s about the size of our current provincial deficit.

That’s about 8% of total program spending.

It is a significant number.

I’m thinking there’s 30% room for improvement. That’s $3 billion for tax relief, deficit reduction, and / or program spending improvements.

What really put this number in perspective for me is the local (Stouffville) count. 42. FORTY TWO! 22 are firefighters according to this story on yorkregion.com. 2 are the top bureaucrats for Stouffville.  And the rest?
