Most definitely. Recycling should be legislated at the provincial or federal level and financed at the local or industry level. Once money is collected at a high government level, corruption sets in due to the amount of money involved. Either the money gets siphoned off for other uses by the government or it gets siphoned off by corrupt leeches with government connections. OTOH, with today's government lobby system, corruption also occurs at the legislative level but at least it is reduced. The income tax was originally implemented as a temporary measure to pay for WW1. Look where we are now.I somehow get the impression that we are having the wool pulled over our eyes.
