EI Premium Rebate is Political Marketing – Letter to the Editor by Tom Manley

EI Premium Rebate is Political Marketing – Letter to the Editor by Tom Manley

The old saying is “any free advertising is good advertising”. The Harper Conservatives exploit that by getting air time over a useless rebate in EI premiums. In fact, they get double messaging by falsely claiming job creation benefits. For one, a rebate of pennies in EI premiums to small businesses does not create jobs. A […]

TO: Jamie   I read with interest your promise, if elected to public office, to attract $25/hour jobs to Cornwall.

Letter to the Editor on Electricity In Ontario by William Hopkinson of Cornwall

Hydro One has to be stopped.   With the recent announcement that the Ontario Hydro debt retirement charge will be taken off hydro bills in 2016 they seem to be buttering up the Ontario voter and taxpayer.  That debt was actually paid off in 2010.  Thankfully, in Cornwall we are not subject to the Ontario Hydro […]

With health care in Ontario taking about half of the annual budget and rising, have you wondered how much administration cost there is, even before the hospital’s share?

Letter to Editor re: Canada loses nearly 46,000 jobs in December by Larry Kazdan of Vancouver BC

If the Harper Conservatives were serious about job creation, they would not rely entirely on the whims of private sector hiring. In 1944,  Canada’s unemployment rate dropped below 1 per cent because one out of every three adult males was engaged in military service and many private sector workers were fulfilling government contracts. As the […]
