Canada is a great country, poised to become an economic superpower—if only we harness the unique opportunities before us and eliminate the many barriers to our success.
So says Canadian Business magazine who listed the many reasons why we won’t succeed if these problems are not addressed.
At the top of that list of barriers is the baby bust.
If Canadians are to continue to flourish we need a strong, growing and diverse work force.
If we’re not having babies how can we possibly expect to fill the need?
Even with Canada’s healthy immigration status we’re still going to fall short in more ways than one.
Canadians are quick to get up on the wheel when it comes to chasing their careers but slow to get up on each other to chase the big O.
The end result is we are reproducing much less than we did even 20 years ago.
Remember families of 3, 4 and 5 kids?
We’re marrying later, due to education and other opportunities, pushing back the process even further.
And when we are there we’re too damned tired or can’t afford them.
It seems to eliminate those barriers holding us back we will have to eliminate the very characteristics that got us where we are.
Perhaps life was better when there was nothing else to do except have sex.
