    Another way to look at it, with numbers I pulled out of the air because this isn't my job. They say there are 6 or 7 jobs created to support each job at GM so 7 x 2500 = 17500 jobs wild guess average $30K per year = $525M x 20 % tax = $105M PER YEAR in taxes going to the government. And the bailout was ten years ago. So that's $1.05B. Add 2500 gm jobs at a round $50K per year (and most pay more than that), 30% tax rate and that's another $37.5M per year or $375M. Now add all the sales taxes generated when those salaries are spent. And then add the taxes on the profit that spending generates. And finally if GM wasn't bailed out and had folded the Gov would have spent hundreds of millions per year or more on social assistance and retraining. On the balance of things I'd say it could have been worse. *not sure why my font went all wonky there sorry
  2. It's not really close to Toronto but for anyone following this thread don't sleep on Elwood Epps on hwy 11 in Gravenhurst. The have Salus and Mustang, lots of sizes in stock, and their prices are very competitive. I went from a one piece Mustang to a two piece Salus and I'm very happy with it. Nice to be able to take off the coat in the hut.
  3. Since we're pointing out "wrongs", it's "you're doing it wrong" πŸ˜‚ PS walleye for the win!

    All Weather Tires

    I use BFG All Terrain K02's all year round and I love them. They are tough (LT) and snow rated, not as loud as you might think, and they're wearing well so far. No good for a car but if you're driving a pickup I wouldn't use anything else.if you want to run only one set year round.

    Inflatable Life Jackets

    For people that want an inflatable it's your life, your choice. I fish from a kayak, often at night and occasionally alone. I use a foam PFD as knowing that an inflatable is statistically unlikely to fail will be no comfort to me while I drown if it does. Besides, my PFD is all day comfortable. Most good ones are.

    How old is OFC/OFC?

    I still have my OF "N" hand towel and use it every time out. That thing will never die πŸ˜‚

    Nice teeth on this eye

    Pike teeth are like a blade, walleye teeth are like a spear tip.

    Interesting product TRUFUEL. NF

    I don't really understand why everyone is struggling to understand this point. So you're cheap and want to spend less? Great, have at 'er. Why care that we find a few extra dollars for convenience works for us????
  11. Great report and some beautiful pics. Thanks for posting.

    Interesting product TRUFUEL. NF

    I'm with you. I live in an apartment. A can lasts me all season and this stuff never goes bad. Its also not just premixed gas. It's better and cleaner. It won't gum up carbs. I can understand not wanting the cost if you're using liters per trip but it's perfect for me.

    I doubt my auger even uses a whole can per season so $10 a liter is not really an issue for me.
