My mistake

This flat tax notion needs to be eliminated. Income taxes have been reduced by both federal and provincial governments following which they both said we can't afford to do things so all those poor working slobs will have to tighten their belts and pay sales tax.

Sales taxes are costly to collect for there are too many handlers in the way.

Personal income ought to be the only criterion for paying tax.

Strength of the economy being the governing factor.

Multicultural Celebration cheered

A big thanks to all the organizers and volunteers for the Multicultural Event on Monday (June 27). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was good to see so many locals and visitors come together and enjoy good food and excellent entertainment. Hopefully this will be a yearly event.
