Morneau’s ‘tax escalator’ a bad precedent Most taxpayers probably breathed a sigh of relief that Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s spring budget didn’t include any headline-grabbing tax hikes, such as increases in income taxes or business taxes. Rumoured new taxes on health and dental benefits and capital gains thankfully never materialized. But that doesn’t mean taxpayers got off the hook completely. There were still a few small increases, inclu

Ottawa pizzeria: Liberals put minimum thought into minimum wage hike
Ottawa pizzeria: Liberals put minimum thought into minimum wage hike There have been many opinions by various economists on the impact of the Liberal government’s plan to raise the minimum wage to $15. I wanted to give the real world perspective of a small, growing business that employs many students at the current minimum wage level. We opened Fiazza Fresh Fired three years ago. When developing the business plan, we, of course, had to estimate expens

Ontario energy sector in shambles thanks to McGuinty-Wynne duo For decades to come, former Premier Dalton McGuinty and Premier Kathleen Wynne will be a case study in political science and public administration university courses across Canada — but for the wrong reasons. Both will be studied for how to impoverish a provincial economy by making ideologically-driven electricity policies, devoid of any planning and logic. Ontario used to be the manuf

Wynne’s Liberals: Rules? What rules? – She makes them up as she goes to always favour her and her liberals.

Wynne’s Liberals: Rules? What rules? – She makes them up as she goes to always favour her and her liberals.
Wynne’s Liberals: Rules? What rules? If Premier Kathleen Wynne wants to run an open and transparent government, as she says she does, we have a simple question. Why is her government putting inserts into hydro bills touting the province’s 8% HST rebate, which started Jan. 1, but not including the increased cost of cap and trade as a separate item on home heating and energy bills, which also started Jan. 1? Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault claims ad

Wynne Liberals can’t be trusted The Liberal government under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, demonstrably, no longer deserves the public’s trust. (TORONTO SUN/FILES) Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government wants you to believe its horrid treatment of Maureen, a 75-year-old woman who was the victim of a government test program gone awry, is an exception to the rule. A rare case of “human error”, even if government bureaucrats had the gall to sugg

  Kelly McParland: Ontario’s delusional Liberals set course for Clinton-style oblivion Kelly McParland There is a something going on within the Ontario Liberal party right now that carries a distinct aroma. It’s hard to put a finger on, but it bears more than a hint of Hillary Clinton. The Toronto Star, which lives to promote eternal Liberal rule, has been dropping heavy hints that Premier Kathleen Wynne ought to give some thought to retirement,

Sunny ways turn to secrecy and control Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. (Dave Abel/Toronto Sun) Justin Trudeau gave voters the impression he was turning a page on what he portrayed as the dark and secretive ways of the former Conservative government. Sunny ways was all the rage. But Prime Minister Trudeau has not delivered. Recent reports reveal he’s treating Parliament as nothing more than a tool to ram through his agenda, opposition support be damn

Cap and trade just a carbon tax
Cap and trade just a carbon tax - The liberal promised not to raise taxes on the middle class, looks like they lied once again. What does Climate Change Minister Glen Murray’s announcement Monday that Ontario sold out its first cap-and-trade auction of carbon credits mean to you? It means Ontario businesses have just paid a new charge of $472 million to the Wynne government in a government-run quarterly auction of carbon permits to industry, through

Trudeau is nickel-and-diming Canadians to death - too bad this moron has no concept of what it like to earn a living. He has always been living off taxpayer dollars in one form or another. Trudeau can’t control his spending, and he’s finding lots of ways to make you pay for it Justin Trudeau just made your life more expensive. And he couldn’t care less. Picture this: You’re one of the almost two million Canadians who claim the Public Transit Tax C
