Hard to understand

When an organization so proud of all their plaques of all the free funding and free donations and free land , free building supplies and free money giving to them by people and businesses so proudly displaying in the entrance showing how much money they have collected on the wall when you enter the building in my life yet this free shit never trickle down to the people that need it most. I have never seen more outdated, old shitty equipment, furniture or free garbage just placed in a building in my life ! And they don't care about the people living here when you call to complain they just keep quoting spec's and code by-laws. Where is all this Funding going ? Right into their shitty little pockets! It's appalling ! Appalling !

Is this really a confession, or a gripe?

Pretty vague, for example?

Accountability

Start a website, take pics, post. If donations publicly available, post amount next to pictures. Simply ask your question on the home page - Where has this money gone? Source information on the donator's financials again, if publicly available.
Either that or take the above information and provide to a reputable news outlet such as the Straight. And no. I don't work for the media. I believe in accountability. Action is better than stewing over it.

The entire system is corrupt

The way I see it there is no reason for anyone to be broke. I mean as citizens we're all shareholders in our nation in the Crown Corporation but we never see a cut of the profits from our natural resources. Politicians that are shareholders themselves in these corporations that exploit our natural resources all think that our natural resources belong to them personally. Forget taxes, they should be cutting us all annual checks of our equal shares of those profits subtracted a small percentage off the top for infrastructure costs that our taxes would otherwise pay for. Everyone should be getting cut like million + dollar checks each year.
They should have to pay the country for all the oil, lumber and minerals they extract and then work in the cost for their material, time, and labor into their retail price for their refined products just like everyone else has to. Maybe I should run for PM and make sure everyone stops getting ripped off and gets what's owed to them with all the back pay.

Canada can afford universal basic income or in the least a "top up" for lower income people. It is one of the most resource rich countries in the world.

Forget "basic" . That's just you get minimum wage welfare, you own nothing, you be miserable, you eat bugs, while some humanoid AI robot does your job more efficiently, more effectively, and for a lot less than you could ever do it for. Just like an AI could do their jobs governing a lot more efficiently, more effectively, far more honestly, and for a lot less than they could ever do it for. No more class division. We're all rich, we all get our equal shares of the profits from our natural resources, we all have our flying space cars with all that Nikola Tesla UFO tech they got hidden away, so no more need of roads, just nature trails and landing pads.

It’s called virtue signalling. Waving the flag, pointing out how they do the right thing so you should support them. In reality, most could care less about the actual cause.

And no thank you to the “sharing of the riches” of Canada. Each one of our “shares” of Canada’s wealth works out to about -$60,000. Even if the entire $316 billion revenue collected by the Canadian government were split equally, everyone would be getting a yearly cheque for just under $10k. And remember, now you will have to pay for your healthcare, fire and police service, roads, and all other services that the government is currently providing because the government is no longer funded so cannot deliver these services.

Don’t get me wrong, I think pretty much all world governments are corrupt and morally bankrupt, but unfortunately the alternatives are even less palatable and less sustainable. It’s like paying the mafia protection money. While it sucks to have to do it, it’s better than the alternative- especially when the mafia is the police, the judiciary and the legislature, all rolled into one.
