Yes, this is yet another one of those "Canada's Economic Action Plan" signs that proudly announce the government's plan to stimulate the economy by spending scads of money on signs proudly announcing the government's plan to stimulate the economy. But this sign is special. It's not outside any old rink, town hall, or bordello. Oh, no. Guess what notorious institution is graced by the presence of this sign?

Hint: It's in Miramichi, New Brunswick.

That's right. This sign is outside the Canadian Firearms Centre. Otherwise known as the long-gun registry. Yes, the long-gun registry the government is fighting tooth and nail to close.

Maybe a sign saying "Stimulate This!" would have been more appropriate.
