Reverse the Canadian Armed Forces Pay Clawback Decision

I am demanding the Federal Government stop clawing back soldiers’ danger pay. Before soldiers are sent on future missions, this policy decision needs to be resolved. Liberals have no problem borrowing billions to give away to other countries for global warming, but they undervalue the women and men serving in uniform. When will the defence […]

Can the Pop Tax

Trudeau Tax Target: Your Home

The Trudeau Liberals announced that you now have to report the sale of your home on your income tax return. Up until now when you sell your ‘primary residence’, you didn’t have to pay any taxes on the money you may have made. We’ve always had this tax exemption, and before now you never had […]

Wrong for Federal Government to Use Gender in Assessing Veteran’s Benefit

The decision by the liberal government to not compensate a Veteran for an injury sustained while on duty on the basis of gender is just plain wrong. What was particularly distressing to the Veteran was the nonsensical answer from the Liberals that hiring more bureaucrats would somehow make up for this poor decision. This has […]
