According to the sorce that U of a students are not allowed to quote from, Wikipedia,
“The term “monopoly” first appears in Aristotle’s Politics, wherein Aristotle describes Thales of Miletus‘ cornering of the market in olive presses as a monopoly (μονοπωλίαν).”
And the Canadian competition act at
PURPOSE AND INTERPRETATION
1.1 The purpose of this Act is to maintain and encourage competition in Canada in order to promote the efficiency and adaptability of the Canadian economy, in order to expand opportunities for Canadian participation in world markets while at the same time recognizing the role of foreign competition in Canada, in order to ensure that small and medium-sized enterprises have an equitable opportunity to participate in the Canadian economy and in order to provide consumers with competitive prices and product choices. “
Even though the competition act is written righty into the Canadian law, under its own act, the Competition act, which says people of Canada are allowed to have choices in the market place, the University of Alberta, has decided that monopolies are all righty, and that on Campus the U of a will decide what you choose.
Yes indeed, in contradiction to everything the free market system stands for, in total contradiction of the competition act, the Big Brotherly University of Alberta has thrown the democractic concept of free market competition out the window, and embraced the totalitarian dictatorship of the monopoly, which the competition act is there to anull.
Indeed, at the University of Alberta, cocaine cola, the breadbasket of greed is the only sugary diabetic inducing soft drink allowed on campus!
In a slap to the face of all pepsi-cola drinkers, and freedom of choice everywhere, the University of Alberta has said choice is something not allowed for students. In the quest of greed, freemarket competition is gone to the highest bidder. just as it was in the days where there were serfs, and no universities.
The Competition Act ignoring, University of Alberta, has decided that students do not need choices in life, such a decision clearly shows how the monopoly supporting University of Alberta spits upon the charter of rights and freedoms which says choices are a freedom or right.
The Monopoly supporting, University of Alberta, has decided that; teaching students to sell out to the highest bidder is the thing to do. The University of Alberta has also decided that teaching students to spit upon the competition act is great! As long as greed stuffs ones pockets, its allrighty to stiffle the competition is a free market system and country says the University of Alberta with its monopoly for cocaine greed cola.
some of the latest long standing jokes on campus according to the University of Alberta studets rumor mongering mill are:
1 I’ll be right back, I’m just gonna go get a pepsi!
2 Could you go get me a pepsi? ( replaces “please go, your boring”)
3 Monopoly? Thats a bord game cocaine greed cola won!
All this thwarting of the competition act by the University of Alberta in the name of greedy pocket stuffing, makes one wonder a few things like: does ones grades go down at the University of Alberta if one is seen drinking pepsi? Or is one declared a terrorist for drinking pepsi? Is a person banned from campus if caught drinking a pepsi? And of course whats next?
Will there soon be just one type of food one can get on campus at the university of Alberta? aND WILL THERE BE JUST ONE CAR ADVERTISED ON THE CAMPUS RADIO, the hummer perhaps? Will students at the University of Alberta be forced to shop at only One Store, buy only one brand and one size of underwear?
Monopolies are wrong, they contravine everything the competition act is there for. For a University to be wiping thier dirty rear end with the competition act is beyond wrong, for they are the ones that are there to teach students ABOUT stuff like the competition act and free trade, and how monopolies are wrong. Instead:
one must ask: “U of A, what are they teaching there?”
