In February of 2013 Dean Beeby of the Canadian Press in an article said, "Canadians may be growing weary – even hostile to – all those Economic Action Plan ads the Harper government has been pumping out for the last four years." He also stated "eight polls the Finance Department commissioned between 2009 and 2012 suggest the TV, radio, print and internet ads are starting to fizzle – and annoy some people."

Wind0turbine-regEditor:

This is an open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Health Minister Rona Ambrose.

The Multi-municipal Wind Turbine Working Group is comprised of elected municipal councillors and appointed citizens from parts of Southern Ontario where approximately 30 per cent of industrial wind turbines are concentrated. Over the past several years we have received a growing number of delegations from constituents whose health has been adversely affected by proximity to the wind turbines.

The Owen Sound Harbour has come back into the news with a recent meeting. For 25 dollars, those attending got to hear MP Larry Miller tell us what he has always said, that there may be some private corporation ready to take ownership of this public property which the federal government wishes to sell. Larry talks of helping to create a harbour sale which will lead to dredging for shipping.

splitting-regEditor:

The Harper Conservative government has recently introduced a federal tax credit billed as the "Family Tax Cut" (income splitting) that will allow a higher-income spouse to transfer up to $50,000 of taxable income to a spouse in a lower tax bracket. The credit provides up to $2,000 for couples with children under the age of 18 and is effective for the 2014 tax year. This will cost public coffers about $2.4- billion in 2014-2015 and roughly $2-billion per year until 2019-20. This uses up a vast sum of the (alleged) coming surplus on one inequitable tax program.
