It seems that most, if not all, of these “public health” organizations are actually registered charities. This is likely structured that way to encourage private donations. After all, a person isn’t really making the entire payment if they are submitting receipts to the Canada Revenue Agency.
While this article starts off with the Nova Scotia Health Authority, the pattern here can be applied to its counterparts elsewhere.
Looking at the most recent tax information available, the NSHA took in some $2.5 billion in revenues, and approximately 90% of it was Government (or rather taxpayer) funded. Approximately 10% came from some other sources. Also makes one wonder what “other sources” could be, if it isn’t gifts, donations (with or without a receipt), or Government money.
As for the expenses, administrative costs is a pretty self explanatory title. However, 92%, presumably what was spent on health care, is actually listed as “charitable programs”. $1.7 billion was spent on salaries, and $24.5 million on consulting fees.
By the way, whatever happened to that $83 million classified as “other” spending? Did it end up in someone’s pocket, or some offshore bank account?
It certainly seems that the executives were paid very well for what they do. And nothing screams competent quite like locking down an entire Province for a year (and counting). No one has been fired, or forced onto CERB or EI.
Never forget that tyrants like Rankin and Strang are willing to use secret court hearings in order to shut down the ability of people to peacefully voice their unhappiness.
Just a thought: perhaps the groups who are so interested in lobbying the Nova Scotia Government to buy large quantities of their products are also making donations to the NS Health Authority. It may be worth considering.
This is hardly limited to Nova Scotia. Taking a look at the tax records of the British Columbia Provincial Health Services Authority, BCPHSA, we get this:
Next we turn to Alberta Health Services. Remember, Jason Kenney is a “conservative” and claims to support freedom. As for the people running the AHS, it’s interesting that there are always 10 people listed. Or perhaps it just refers to the top 10 earners.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority is no better, paying its top executives more than $350,000 each. They also support lockdowns, and pushing experimental poison on their citizens. Way to promote public health.
Next up is the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, which is separate from the Manitoba Government, although subjected to the rules imposed Provincially.
Anyone notice a pattern here? The top executives are making large amounts of money, often in excess of $300,000 per year. While others are told that their jobs and businesses are “non-essential”, the decision makers are still drawing their salaries. There hasn’t been a single notice of such a person getting laid off. The damage they cause seems to be irrelevant.
See what else is listed as a charity.
It’s quite surprising.
Depending on the Province, and amount given, tax rebates are possible in the area of around 50%. This means that the public will be subsidizing these “donations”.
Remember that $5 million donation from the Como Foundation to Trillium Health Partners? Como is a company whose business skyrocketed after mask mandates were imposed. The Canadian public, and in particular, Ontarians, will be picking up the tab.
As a final thought, it’s not just health care institutions that are structured as charities. Countless colleges and universities are either structured the same way, or have a foundation that is. Every time they get donations, the public is forced to subsidize it.
And it’s worth pointing out, many schools receive grants from pharmaceutical companies. Sometimes it’s in the form of scholarships, sometimes as research funding.
