Say no to a carbon tax, for the sake of your children - Thursday, August 8, 2019

Research shows that only those born 45 years after a carbon tax is implemented will see the benefits that outweigh higher energy prices

 

Say no to a carbon tax, for the sake of your children  Lake Superior News
#LSN_Opinion  Fraser Institute

Toronto, Ontario   -  August 8, 2019  (LSN)  I work on environmental and energy economics in both Canada and the United States. I’ve noticed that U.S. debates tend to focus on abstract principles – “capitalism versus socialism,” for example – whereas Canadians tend to put aside ideology and inquire about the empirical details. In this context, and as Canada’s political parties rollout their climate plans for the federal election in October, I’m here to report to Canadians that many of the extreme policy ideas you’re hearing will do more harm than the climate change they are meant to prevent.

 

Taxes versus the Necessities of Life: - Sunday, August 4, 2019

The average Canadian family paid $39,299 in taxes last year—more than housing, food and clothing combined

Taxes versus the Necessities of Life  Fraser Institute  Lake Superior News
#LSN_Opinion  Fraser Institute

Toronto, Ontario   -  August 4, 2019  (LSN)  The average Canadian family spent more than 44 per cent of its income on taxes in 2018, more than housing, food and clothing costs combined, finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank.

“Taxes—not life’s basic necessities—remain the largest household expense for families across the country,” said Finn Poschmann, resident scholar at the Fraser Institute, citing the Canadian Consumer Tax Index, which tracks the total tax bill of the average Canadian family from 1961 to 2018.

 Doug Ford Slams Liberal Government As They Try Falsely Blaming Him For Bombardier Layoffs

Doug Ford Slams Liberal Government As They Try Falsely Blaming Him For Bombardier Layoffs  Lake Superior News

#LSN_Opinion   #LSN_TBay Spencer Fernando 

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA -  July 10, 2019   (LSN) Liberal government is “sitting on their hands” says Ontario Premier.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford is fighting back after the federal Liberals try to blame him for the layoffs announced by Bombardier.

Liberal Labour Minister Patty Hajdu tried to blame Ford in earlier comments, despite the fact that the Liberals have repeatedly bailed out Bombardier without securing any protections whatsoever for Canadian workers.

At a press conference, Ford fired back against the false Liberal claims:
“They’ve been sitting on their hands. My message to the federal government is: ‘We put our money where our mouth is. Where is their money?'” said Ford.

Mayor Mauro’s performance in his first town hall

#LSN_Opinion  Dease Pool 1920

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  -  May 23, 2019  (LSN)  Mayor Mauro’s performance in his first town hall did not reflect a city positioning itself for the 21st century.  Everything was wrong with Mauro’s dogmatic address to the community in his spirited public engagement.

Revealing were Mauro’s words to councilors, which he says he offered before they were sworn in, of the ability to say “no”. Revealing also was his scuttling of the formality to recognize that the proceedings were held on traditional First Nations’ lands. These would define the theme of the evening.

To the supporters of Dease pool - the closure of which was ramrodded in a hasty seven days just a week before Christmas - Mauro laboured on the process and how near impossible it would be to reconsider the decision. No mention why the process that allowed for council to defer the decision to give citizens an opportunity to meaningfully explain their concern over something so impactful, was denied them.

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  -  May 12, 2019  (LSN) The collapse of Thunder Bay’s industrial tax base and city council’s failure to reduce the costs of running the city accordingly came home to roost in dramatic fashion last month.

            City hall staff told the politicians that city homeowners could expect to see a surprise increase in their tax bills this year of .5 per cent. That’s on top of the 2.30 per cent increase approved at budget time.

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA -  April 14, 2019   (LSN)   The Trudeau government and the corrupt anti-freedom elites didn’t get exactly what they expected from a consultation on the idea of a wide-ranging gun ban.

The Liberals have been laying the rhetorical groundwork for a ban on handguns and so-called ‘assault-weapons’ (a category always kept purposely vague by the elites), and introduced a ‘consultation’ to see what people think.

And according to a new report, that response was strongly against a gun ban.

#LSN_Opinion  Frontier Centre  TroyMedia

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA  -  March 12, 2019  (LSN) Precious little good will can come from Victoria city council's campaign, but it will certainly cost a great deal of money

The City of Victoria wants to round up municipalities to sue oil companies for damages from climate change. Not only is such a case virtually impossible to prove, it’s also full of rich ironies.

Weather-related damages, termed “perils” in Canadian insurance plans, are more commonly called acts of God. How ironic that environmentalists envision the power to place oil companies on the divine throne, then sue them for damages.

Yet, Victoria city council, inspired by a United Nations mandate, wants to do just that – and get Vancouver and other cities to follow.

#LSN_Opinion   Spencer Fernando

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA -  February 7, 2019   (LSN)   This is a potentially massive scandal.

SNC-Lavalin is a powerful construction company based in Montreal.

Jody Wilson-Raybould refused, and was later removed from the justice minister post by Trudeau:
As noted by the Sun, “A week ago, former SNC-Lavalin CEO Pierre Duhaime pleaded guilty to what the Canadian Press described as “a charge of helping a public servant commit breach of trust for his role in a bribery scandal around the construction of a $1.3-billion Montreal hospital.”
