Carbon Tax = Tax Grab??

Ask your MLA and MP (if we have one) what exactly does the carbon tax do? Does it stay in a dedicated fund aimed at reducing carbon, or does it just go into that great slush fund used to fund all the stuff they tell us we need them to do for us?

One Reason For Some Being "Homeless"

City Cleans Up Mess Left By "Homeless"

The Nanaimo Bulletin ran an article reporting on the ongoing cleanup of Discontent City, all on the taxpayers dime, thank you very much.

It is unlikely we will actually know what this little disaster (courtesy of Mayor McKay and city hall staff) is going to cost in the end, hundreds of thousands I am certain.

One thing that I have never heard raised is the question as to 'why' some if not many of these people are homeless. The answer to that is as clear as can be when you look at the way they are willing to live in a garbage heap of their own making. I can't imagine how any landlord would accept any of these people as tenants as they clearly are lacking in the very basic elements of taking responsibility and being accountable. Being poor is no excuse for living in your own filth.

But not to worry, once you have made enough noise about not being able to find housing the government with endless tax dollars to spend will provide housing for these folk that people on fixed incomes and even those working could barely afford.

That is one of the basic problems with the Marxist/socialist types (of which Nanaimo has it's share) in that it kills the incentives to work hard and take care of yourself as the government will step in and 'steal' money you have earned by the sweat of your brow to feed, shelter and cloth those who won't take responsibility for themselves.


Nanaimo Leads The Gas Gouging Parade

As of 1:08 pm Nov. 15/18 reported on Gas Buddy.
Highest prices being reported in Nanaimo. Note: the two worst gougers are Petro Canada .... thought they were supposed to be good for Canada??

Typical of most gas prices at Nanaimo gas stations.

Prices being reported in Duncan, once again highlighting the obvious way Nanaimo the Nanaimo station operators keep ripping the Nanaimo motoring public. It has been that way for years, and no one seems to be able to do anything about it. No price fixing in Nanaimo you say?? Wanna buy some swamp land.

Adrienne Clarkson Billing Canadians $100,000/yr

 Adriene Clarkson

According to this National Post article former governor general Adrienne Clarkson has billed taxpayers for $1.1 million in expenses on top of the $1.6 million she has received in pension benefits which is in addition to the $3 million grant she received courtesy of Canadian taxpayers.

Launch Petition

Taxpayers have paid $1.1 million in expenses for a former governor general since she LEFT office in 2005.

Former governor general Adrienne Clarkson's time in office ended in 2005. She has continued to submit receipts to the Government of Canada. Those expenses have added up to $1.1 million, according to the Ottawa Citizen. And all of this is legal and approved by the Government of Canada.

What ordinary Canadian keeps submitting expenses to an employer years after leaving a job?

And what kind of employer keeps paying those expenses?

The $1.1 million Clarkson billed for expenses is on top of the $1.6 million she’s collected from her pension and the $3 million the government gave her to start a foundation.

Clarkson is sticking taxpayers with the biggest bills, but former governors general have been submitting expenses to the government since the 1970s.

Enough is enough.

Within minutes of the story breaking, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation launched a petition demanding an end to the gravy train for former governors general.
