  • The Wellington Advertiser - Bad Omens
    a business recession That is not entirely reliable but it cannot be ignored Thus banks have reduced their market making activity That can lead to sharp price moves as investors become more cautious and a kind of buyers strike ensues The fall in commodity prices adds to buyers worries The cycle of a credit driven boom and bust is very important and has manifested itself over and over again The cycle goes on pushing up prices These trends feed on themselves and buyers become ever more enthusiastic Demands for credit rise as more want to participate in the cycle Rising interest rates seem to confirm this These worries may be overdone as cash reserves are large Still yellow lights are flashing but many hope that calm will continue for some time yet Vol 49 Issue 02 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of calamity Often we mirror our parents Putting up with put downs A tale of two

  • The Wellington Advertiser - A precarious economy
    Meanwhile provincial governments must show some prudence and that will mean an absence of stimulus for that sector Hence what is to be done It seems that there should be a new industrial strategy Resistance to that is usually caused by fear of more government regulation that allegedly burdens free enterprise This does not need to be the case For example regulation in transportation would protect the public s interests and the improved transportation that would take place would be of great benefit to our manufacturing sector The cumbersome nature of regulation which is caused when federal provincial and municipal authorities are involved should be streamlined and hence could help the entire economy One step that can be taken is for the governments to provide better information Now that the longer census form is to be reinstated by the Trudeau administration that will be a useful tool Vol 49 Issue 01 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Troubled economy
    The so called free trade agreements lack championship as our trade partners seem to have the upper hand in negotiations on the subject Our post secondary institutions have failed to keep pace with modern technology Education falls into provincial jurisdiction and some such as Quebec are zealous in protecting that Yet funding by all levels of government would provide a large feedback so all our governments must tackle this problem Weak commodity prices are an obvious hurdle for our economy We have instituted an ever normal granary plan so that low oil prices entail governments to fund withholding supplies until a better price structure merges Increased development of the north should be forthcoming We lack the population in areas where for example Russia has millions more inhabitants than we do at the same latitude Finally Canada should fund spending so that our railways measure up to those in Europe and Japan Vol 48 Issue 52 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise

  • The Wellington Advertiser - The new session
    new year However unanswered questions remain The government must fully account for the costs and ensure that proper processes are in place to both screen and care for these refugees Finally Mr Trudeau indicated during the election that Canada would withdraw our fighter jets from the international military coalition combatting the Islamic State The government has not yet withdrawn our CF 18s and ought to reconsider that decision in light of the recent attacks in Paris It would send the wrong message to the Islamic State and to our allies if we were to withdraw at this time Carrie and I and our three boys wish you and your family all the best for the holidays a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Vol 48 Issue 52 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of calamity Often we mirror our parents Putting up with put downs A tale of two landlords A letter from the campsite Two

  • The Wellington Advertiser - The Reform Act
    that mandates that leaders approve party candidates It will allow MPs to decide whether the leader or caucus can expel MPs from caucus and how the caucus chair is selected It will allow MPs to choose an interim leader in the event of the leader s removal sudden resignation incapacity or death Finally it will allow MPs to formalize the rules to review and remove party leaders thereby enhancing the democratic accountability party leaders have to elected MPs in party caucuses The passage of the Reform Act is a victory for Canadian democracy It demonstrates that Parliament while very old and sometimes archaic is capable of reform and renewal It is my hope that the passage of the Reform Act is the beginning of further reforms of Parliament to strengthen our democracy and prepare it for the challenges Canada faces in the 21st century Due to this fall s pending federal election this will be the last MP column run in the Advertiser until after the election Vol 48 Issue 31 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Services for seniors
    their taxes payable Thanks in part to these measures the number of low income seniors in Canada has decreased from 21 4 per cent in 1980 to 5 2 per cent in 2011 one of the lowest rates in the developed world However the government understands that more can always be done The recent federal budget will reduce minimum withdrawal rates for RRIFs to allow seniors to reduce their taxes and preserve more of their capital This change also better reflects recent real rates of return and expected inflation In addition the federal budget proposes to increase the TFSA contribution limit from 5 500 to 10 000 This will help Canadians save even more tax free for their retirement For more information on government assistance for seniors contact my office at 866 878 5556 or michael chong parl gc ca Vol 48 Issue 25 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines V Shantora July 8 2015 11 15 I wish to comment on Michael Chong s latest column entitled Services for Seniors It did not escape my notice that while Mr Chong provided information on what the Harper Government is doing for seniors he avoided comment on what the Harper Government is doing TO seniors namely raising the retirement age for receiving government benefits to age 67 Perhaps there was good reason for this who knows It was the way it was done that particularly irks me It would seem reasonable before making a significant change like this one that affects so many people to get some public input particularly from seniors and soon to be seniors and to have a good debate in Parliament before putting it to a vote It s called openness and transparency But no Stephen Harper chose instead to jet set off to Switzerland to make the announcement over there to a foreign audience who have absolutely no interest in domestic Canadian issues So it would be helpful if Mr Chong could take the time to explain to his constituents and especially to soon to be seniors why this change was made V Shantora Elora REPORT ABUSE 24 21 COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of calamity Often we mirror

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Small businesses
    taxes reduced by almost 28 600 since 2006 The government has also reduced the number of payments and filings that businesses have to prepare and submit to the Canada Revenue Agency Since 2006 the government has cut red tape by reducing the maximum number of payments that more than 50 000 businesses have to prepare and submit to the Canada Revenue Agency eliminating the requirement for more than 800 000 payments In addition the government has combined two federal and provincial corporate tax returns into one federal return The recent federal budget builds upon these achievements The government recognize that taxes absorb dollars that can be used by business owners to invest in plant capital and equipment The federal budget will reduce the small business tax rate from 11 to 9 by 2019 creating the largest tax rate cut for small business in more than 25 years This will allow small businesses to retain more earnings that can be used to reinvest and create jobs In addition the federal budget proposes to amend the Canada Small Business Financing Act to raise the small business eligibility criteria from firms with gross annual revenues of 5 million or less to firms with gross annual revenues of 10 million or less Furthermore the federal budget proposes to increase the Lifetime Capital Gains Exemption from 800 000 to 1 million for farmers who are an important part of our local small business economy This will allow farmers to maintain more of their capital for retirement For more information on assistance for small business in the federal budget contact my office at 866 878 5556 or by e mail at michael chong parl gc ca Vol 48 Issue 21 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of calamity Often we mirror our parents Putting up with put downs A tale of two landlords A letter from the campsite Two shades of black Precious memories Queen s Park Report Merry Christmas Firefighters bill good news Reform Act Groves pits Celebrating 150 years Bad budget Elliott best choice as leader Just another day at the office Merry Christmas Special to the Advertiser Death of JFK changed

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Anti-terrorism bill is needed
    terrorism on the Internet The bill would also allow CSIS Canadian Intelligence Security Service to disrupt the Internet activities of radical jihadists their travel plans and financial transactions both inside and outside of Canada In addition the bill will allow officials to apply for a court order to seize or remove websites that promote terrorism Finally the bill expands the no fly list to include anyone who might be travelling to engage in terrorism and allows the sharing of information about terrorist suspects between government department and agencies The provisions in Bill C 51 are already in place in many other jurisdictions like the United Kingdom and Australia In fact many of the provisions in the bill do not go as far as what is currently in place in those jurisdictions Furthermore these new powers will be accompanied by some increased oversight Security agencies will be required to get court approval before infringing on a suspect s legal rights In addition CSIS agents will not be given the power to arrest or detain Canadians which will remain the exclusive purview of the RCMP and local police However while I fully support Bill C 51 I also believe we need greater oversight of Canadian security and intelligence agencies by a parliamentary committee of elected MPs who are directly and democratically accountable to Canadians That greater oversight is even more important as we give these agencies new powers to combat terrorism It is also why the Senate should pass the Reform Act to ensure that parliamentary committees can carry out their oversight function free of the control of party leaders and the Prime Minister s office For more information on Bill C 51 the Anti terrorism Act 2015 please contact me at 866 878 5556 or at michael chong parl gc ca Vol 48 Issue 12 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of calamity Often we mirror our parents Putting up with put downs A tale of two landlords A letter from the campsite Two shades of black Precious memories Queen s Park Report Merry Christmas Firefighters bill good news Reform Act Groves pits Celebrating 150 years Bad budget Elliott
