Cutting Red Tape in Canada: A Regulatory Reform Model for the United States? | Interesting!

Canada can do it, can the United States–of course we can, but will we? Canada is also pulling away, rather justifiably, from following their bellicose neighbor south of the border in the defense of the Anglo-American empire. As long as American power elites pursue their globalist, transnationalist agenda with the support of the regulatory state it is unlikely that we will be so fortunate as to follow Canada, even as our economic vibrancy withers away.

Canada recently became the first country in the world to legislate a cap on regulation. The Red Tape Reduction Act, which became law on April 23, 2015, requires the federal government to eliminate at least one regulation for every new one introduced. Remarkably, the legislation received near-unanimous support across the political spectrum: 245 votes in favor of the bill and 1 opposed. This policy development has not gone unnoticed outside Canada’s borders.

Canada’s federal government has captured headlines, but its approach was borrowed from the province of British Columbia (BC) where controlling red tape has been a priority for more than a decade. BC’s regulatory reform dates back to 2001 when a newly elected government put in place policies to make good on its ambitious election promise to reduce the regulatory burden by one-third in three years. The results have been impressive.

The government has reduced regulatory requirements by 43 percent relative to when the initiative started. During this time period, the province went from being one of the poorest-performing economies in the country to being among the best. While there were other factors at play in the BC’s economic turnaround, members of the business community widely credit red tape reduction with playing a critical role.
