We go to a very nice Greek Restaurant, where the owners tell us that there are so many citizens in Greece who are on the governments payroll , who actually do no work at all!

They blame the system for being so inefficient that there is no way that many Greeks that want to work for a living, and want to retire by age 45 with full benefits.

Is this any different to Harper's Conservatives?

I had a Greek co-worker. He said that there are many Greeks in the Winnipeg restaurant industry, more than you would expect based on the % of the overall population.

Is that the same as people living in Canada who are perfectly healthy who seem to expect to be totally supported by taxpayers?

I know of at least 2 groups in canada who expect to be fully supported by the government, but neither group is particularly healthy!
