Trudeau’s Tax Target? Your Home.

Trudeau’s Tax Target? Your Home.

Looks: 99 The Trudeau Liberals announced that you now have to report the sale of your home on your income tax return beginning 2016. Your ‘primary residence’ has always been exempt from capital gains tax . Now that the sale must be reported, a tax is not far behind. We’ve always had this tax exemption, and […]

Stand up to the CVRD and tell them to STOP wasting our tax dollars!

Stand up to the CVRD and tell them to STOP wasting our tax dollars!

Looks: 409 I write your newspaper to provide information and facts to the residents and taxpayers of the Cowichan Valley Regional District that relates to the latest decision made by the CVRD Directors. The proposal by the CVRD is to take over complete responsibility for the Lake Cowichan weir. For those you that don’t know; […]

The folly of the two state solution

The folly of the two state solution

Looks: 24 The so called Paris Mideast peace conference attended by representatives from 70 countries is now history with little new and the same old tiresome rhetoric and false reality based more on emotionalism than objectivity. This is what we have come to expect from such conferences and Israel’s Ambassador to the Un Danny Danon […]

Trudeau Is No Bilateral Bargain

Trudeau Is No Bilateral Bargain

Looks: 6 David Krayden, Daily Caller – Americans generally don’t pay a lot of attention to Canada – except maybe when it comes to secreting hostages from Iranian revolutionary fanatics or signing trade deals. The two countries have long been described as sharing the longest undefended border so don’t look for President-elect Donald Trump to […]

With friends like that, who needs enemies!

With friends like that, who needs enemies!

Looks: 7 You can hardly blame Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his scathing attack on the Obama administration after its refusal to veto the UN Security Council resolution last week that once again condemned Israel’s settlements in the West Bank. The ruling is the harshest the UN has ever passed during the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         It is nothing […]

What does anarchy have in common with democracy?

What does anarchy have in common with democracy?

Looks: 7 If anyone is confusing the current insanity on display in Portland, Oregon as even being remotely related to democracy they totally misunderstand that all of our freedoms come with limits. What has happened in the once beautiful city is an American tragedy.  The once beautiful and peaceful City of Roses is now the city of unlawful […]

Colossal Legal Loss

Colossal Legal Loss

Looks: 10 Dear Editor: The waste of public money continues unabated at the CVRD with another colossal legal loss that saw hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars go down the drain to harass a provincially authorized business at Shawnigan Lake. Most of the legal actions taken against businesses fail because the amateurs on the […]

Life is precious and is not just another commodity

Life is precious and is not just another commodity

Looks: 12 In February 2015 the Supreme Court tossed out prohibitions against assisted suicide and euthanasia, saying that such prohibitions “unjustifiably infringe” Charter rights (section 7) of the individual, which are the rights to “life, liberty and security of the person.” So how does forcing physicians to kill their patients not break down the all important physician-patient trust […]

“Real change” equals no change

“Real change” equals no change

Looks: 6 A little over six months ago Canadians bought into Justin Trudeau’s pledge of “real change” and gave him a majority government. It is becoming increasingly  clear that Canadians voted in a government of misplaced priorities, Liberal values as opposed to real Canadian values and a commitment to  the culture of death. We now have a Prime […]
