It's time to tighten up the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy

When Ottawa sent billions in taxpayers’ money to businesses struggling with the pandemic, nobody envisioned luxury golf courses pocketing million-dollar surpluses as a result. Yet that’s an actual thing that happened and it’s not the only example of a dubious outcome from entities that took advantage of an emergency pandemic program for businesses known as the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS).

Former governors general can claim office expenses from beyond the grave

OTTAWA, ON:?The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is releasing a federal report regarding former governors general’s expense accounts. The report shows the estate of a former governor general can claim office expenses for six months after their death.

“It was bad enough that taxpayers should have to cover hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in expenses for retired governors general,” said CTF Federal Director Aaron Wudrick. “Now we learn that taxpayers are on the hook for their office expenses even after they’ve departed from this world.”

Taxpayers shouldn't be stuck paying Julie Payette's expenses forever

It’s shocking to see a governor general resign amidst revelations about a toxic work environment at her office.

For taxpayers, it’s even more shocking to know we’ll have to keep paying her expenses.

Given the kind of behaviour allegedly outlined in the government’s report, Julie Payette had no real choice but to resign as governor general. Toxic management would never be tolerated in any other workplace. It’s certainly unacceptable for the Queen’s representative in Canada.

Indigenous spending up 50% since 2015 despite evidence that more money won’t solve chronic problems

Indigenous spending up 50% since 2015 despite evidence that more money won’t solve chronic problemsCALGARY—If policymakers want to help improve living standards in Indigenous communities, particularly in remote areas of Canada, they should help foster the construction of roads and other infrastructure between these struggling communities and larger population centres—not simply spend more money on government programs, finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank.

Ottawa must stop paying expenses for former governors general

OTTAWA, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation today called on the Trudeau government to immediately stop former governors general from billing taxpayers for expenses indefinitely after they have left office.

“With the resignation of Julie Payette, now is the time for this government to ensure that taxpayers are not on the hook for the expense accounts of former governors general,” said CTF Federal Director Aaron Wudrick.

Taxpayers shouldn't be paying billions to subsidize cruise ship repairs

It’s hard to believe spending $3 billion in taxpayer money to subsidize repairs for cruise ships and other private shipping made it on to Ottawa’s to-do list during the pandemic.

Yet the Ottawa Citizen’s David Pugliese broke the story that Canadian taxpayers will soon be forced to put billions into bankrolling a government shipyard that will overwhelmingly benefit a few private businesses.

The federal government’s plan to convert the Esquimalt Graving Dock (EGD) repair yard on Vancouver Island into a full-service ship construction facility.

City Hall admits Rail Deck Park is 99.9 per cent unfunded

City Hall admits Rail Deck Park is 99.9 per cent unfundedToronto, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is sounding the alarm after a shocking email from Toronto’s budget and finance department revealing that Rail Deck Park is currently more than “99.9 per cent unfunded.” 

“Toronto’s broke, but now we find out Mayor John Tory and city councillors have zero plan to pay for their multi-billion-dollar park pipedream,” said Jasmine Moulton, Ontario Director for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. “In Canada, you’re not even allowed to buy a cheap house with less than five per cent for a down payment, yet Toronto plans to undertake a multi-billion-dollar project with less than 0.1 per cent of the funding figured out.”

Nearly 40% of Canadians who pay capital gains taxes earn less than $100,000 a year

Nearly 40% of Canadians who pay capital gains taxes earn less than $100,000 a yearVANCOUVER—Despite common misperceptions, capital gains taxes are not just paid by wealthy Canadians, and Canada already has a relatively high capital gains tax rate compared to other developed countries, finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan, Canadian public policy think-tank.

“Despite what many Canadians believe, most capital gains taxes are paid by ordinary Canadians and not the super wealthy, and raising this tax, would weaken Canada’s economic recovery,” said Alex Whalen, a policy analyst for the Fraser Institute and co-author of Correcting Common Misunderstandings about Capital Gains Taxes.

Canadian Constitution Foundation's statement on Ontario's stay at home order

We are deeply concerned about how enforcement of Ontario’s new stay at home order will play out. The stay at home regulation includes twenty nine exemptions and carve outs, which allow people to leave their homes for what they determine to be essential reasons. New regulations empower police to stop individuals and demand ID, and issue significant fines. We are worried about what will happen when police and individuals disagree about what “essential” means.

Toronto’s tax-and-spend budget for 2021 not a serious plan for city’s financial woes

Toronto, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is slamming Toronto city council for proposing to raise taxes and take more of taxpayers’ money from other levels of government while proceeding with costly pet projects in its 2021 budget released this morning. 

“Torontonians are struggling right now, but it’s business as usual for city council: raise taxes and continue wasting money,” said Jasmine Moulton, Ontario Director for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. “Instead of abandoning wasteful pet projects, Toronto Mayor John Tory is raising property taxes well beyond the rate of inflation and asking for more taxpayers’ money from other levels of government.”

In his 2018 election campaign, Tory promised to keep property taxes at or below the rate of inflation. Toronto’s proposed 2021 budget raises property taxes by 0.7 per cent (at inflation), but also adds a 1.5 per cent increase to the city building levy on top of property taxes.

Toronto must control spending instead of raising taxes in 2021

Imagine crying poor while lighting money on fire at the same time. That seems to be Toronto Mayor John Tory’s favourite pastime these days.

He recently asked Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford for a cool $1.5 billion to help Toronto balance its operating budget for this year. That’s no small ask. It’s more than 11 per cent of the city’s budget from 2019.

It would be easy to use COVID-19 as an excuse for the city’s financial woes heading into 2021, but the financial accountability office of Ontario recently released a report stating that the province’s “municipalities are projected to run a combined budget surplus of $6.0 billion in 2021.”

Oklahoma and Texas rank far more attractive for oil and gas investment than Alberta

CALGARY—Oklahoma and Texas are considered far more attractive than Alberta for oil and gas investment, according to a new survey of petroleum-sector executives released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan, Canadian public policy think-tank.

“Canada’s onerous and uncertain regulatory environment, along with our lack of pipeline capacity has created a significant competitiveness gap between Canadian and American jurisdictions,” said Elmira Aliakbari, Associate Director of the Centre for Natural Resource Studies at the Fraser Institute and co-author of the Canada-US Energy Sector Competitiveness Survey.

Eliminating unnecessary red tape could save Canadian businesses nearly $11 billion per year

VANCOUVER—If governments across Canada want to help increase productivity—and the possibility of a four-day work week—they should eliminate excessive regulation on businesses and entrepreneurs, finds a new essay released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank.

“Businesspeople and entrepreneurs in Canada should be focused on innovation, improving products, serving customers and growing their businesses, not filling out forms and reports to various levels of governments, which takes time and imposes real financial costs,” said Steven Globerman, editor of the essay series on ways to improve productivity, which is necessary to achieve a four-day work week.

The “Do As I Say, Not As I Do” Award for 2020

It could be called the “DAIS N AID” Award, or the DAISY for short. If there is no such award there should be. It should be awarded annually to the politician or unelected high level bureaucrat who best exemplifies the “do as I say not as I do” principle.

The political elites have been known to condescendingly dictating what their inferiors should and shouldn’t do while they blatantly do the opposite. They feel entitled to break the rules because they are in essence above the rules they set for others.

No Vaccine For You!

No Vaccine For YouSo sayeth the COVID-19 Nazis. At least not during the Christmas holidays. Ontario is like other jurisdictions where everyone MUST take the vaccine in order to stop the spread of the most over-hyped thing since Justin Bieber came on the scene. If you don’t line up and get your shot, people will die and it will all be your fault. You, that’s right YOU, are causing people to die! So you have to get a shot and the consequences future navigation throughout society without a government issued “Vaccination Card” will be pretty well impossible.

So it was a surprise, or maybe not given the erratic state in which all levels of government operate, that vaccination centres closed down for the holidays. Despite the crisis that caused the elites to close the economy on the word of their WHO and UN masters, vaccinating people during the Christmas holidays was not important.

Canada’s Covid-19 Resistance - What Dr. Hinshaw’s Affidavit foretells

Canada’s Covid-19 Resistance - What Dr. Hinshaw’s Affidavit foretellsA foundational myth of Canada’s Covid protest movement has it that at some climatic point in this horror-show the judiciary will rush in to vanquish our medical tormentors. A recent ruling by Justice Kirker of Alberta’s Court of Queen’s Bench pours pails of ice-water onto this fever-born fantasy.

On December 7 the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) et al filed an Originating Application in pursuit of declarations vitiating Alberta’s Covid-related Public Health Orders on the grounds that these Orders violate Charter-protected rights and freedoms.

Taxpayers release Naughty and Nice List

OTTAWA: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tops the Naughty List compiled by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation this year.

“Lying to Canadians and hiking the cost of heating our homes is a sure-fire way to land you on the Naughty List and the prime minister has achieved that in spectacular fashion,” said Aaron Wudrick, Federal Director of the CTF.

“Some politicians and bureaucrats did manage to land on the Nice List this year, so let’s hope Trudeau aims for that in 2021!”

Federal debt has passed $1,000,000,000,000

OTTAWA, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation today marked the sombre milestone of reaching $1 trillion in federal debt by bringing its National Debt Clock in front of Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

“The Trudeau government broke our National Debt Clock by running the debt beyond $1,000,000,000,000,” said CTF Federal Director Aaron Wudrick. “Our National Debt Clock no longer has enough digits to display the size of our federal debt, because nobody ever dreamed the debt would grow this big.”
