  1. Also strange that this was the only part you chose to quote and take the light off of the rest of the statement . Right now here in this country we have a very big problem and that is nothing has changed. We have the party flag waving , wonderful one liners but nothing that is based in what is actually happening. Claimed solar business , well sir you seem to believe what the PM says so take me at my word . I did not like Harper and I see no difference as of yet between him and JT other than a smile and fuzzy general statements so please enlighten us with your knowledge of facts on the budget . I for one am just waiting to hear this and yes I did bring my snow shovel.
  2. Canada and I said read the budget not post it and then point out what promise they kept if you can find it other than another tax , yes a tax will change the planet , acording to the liberals.
  3. Okay I have been warned to be respectful to our PM and not call him junior. Having said that I must point out that as a business owner we do not support any party. We are in the solar business which will not get any help but our taxes will increase now before any Liberal flies off please read the budget as I would hate to embarrass in front of everyone. The environmental plan they came out with is a joke. Yes they have only been in power for 6 months but unless you were extremely ignorant you would already know the problems and I will point to their platform during the election and what they were saying in Paris which amounted to nothing in my opinion. A close look at this budget and you will see there is nothing here other than a tax on carbon period. That tax will go into general revenue then , like the cash cow EI , it will be spent on helping various party contributors just like they did in past years. Action is change not warm, fuzzy and very general words. We are still waiting for a reply from our MP as well as the Minister of Environment for the last 2 months in which we asked for an explanation on the green technology position , not tough or hard but we need clarity as to what is planned so we can prepare and inform customers on changes , if any. Silence. Even the Conservatives answered our letters , not saying we agreed with them but at least they wrote back. Right now we are at a tipping point and whether you believe climate change or not there is a change coming just the very sad part is that it will not be coming from our federal government who has chosen to lead from behind.

    The Budget

    Well now what have our little buddies the Liberals been up to ? Hmmm interesting , change the climate by taxation , maybe that was a typo and they will do something other than tax us , maybe kind of we will see. Okay what did they do with the requests from homeowners to get rebates on solar and wind installations ? Ah ha.....hhmmm , well maybe they will do that in the next election so they look good. Wow we do get to give our carbon tax dollars to help other countries go green....guess it takes a ton of money to increase a tax in them countries. Okay so moving on th Ei and what do we see .....I will be dammed ...if it was another time I would have thought PET was standing right there taking the money from the Unemployment fund-aka-EI-aka-cash cow. Well I have to say it is very refreshing to see Junior run the country just like an old pro lining his and all his buddies pockets all the way to the bank. Why , because he can and 39.6% of the elite people in Canada voted for him giving them a RESOUNDING majority....welcome to Canada.
  5. There are no surprises in any of this. We get lied to we vote out a government and then...get lied to. Our company , as of March 1 , has suspended plans to hire 10 people here because of what we see as a major disaster for Canada about to hit economically. We will fulfill our current obligations but will not carry on with planned expansions for 2016-2017 . This decision was made because of federal government policies that are making it impossible to have any kind of competitive level while maintaining a sustainable growth and profitability in our market as it stands today. We for see the establishment of a carbon tax as a stagnant tax with no outlook on what should actually be taking place. To put a tax in front of any other plan is just a simple money grab which will make no difference other than to increase general revenue coffers and make most feel like they are doing something green. Spending with no constraint is a formula for a major disaster and no budgets do not balance themselves.
  6. You will see a big push for a preferential ballot by the Liberals. They promised this change in the first 18 months of their term in government. Just stating what they said with no expectations on either. Our view is that preferential is no better than FPTP and it is to confusing for most voters.
  7. I did back it up , I called him a thief and that he is a liar and is going to go down in Canadian history as the worst leader yet. In the house of commons they may have to use the word "honorable" but respect is earned not bestowed , I do not respect the man or the party. When I last checked this was a free country and freedom of speech was still valid or are you trying to change that. Oh you may want to read the changes they made in the last budget with all the add ons....you might be interested to see how many freedoms we are about to lose and that my young friend is up to you to read as I already have. Also read the members statements from the past 7 months then you will understand why I am saying all this. Also you assumed wrong the letter was cautioning them on starting a free trade deal with Ukraine...check out the date.
  8. Argus buddy I am afraid you will have to figure out those questions on your own bro. As far as ranting...well if the truth hurts then maybe you should check out why and not follow blindly. I write to the people we hired in Ottawa as they work for us but as I see many just bend over the table and say I like it and that is something I will never do.
  9. Here is what I received in response to the free trade deal I mentioned and this is from John Baird ----- Forwarded Message ----- From: "[email protected]" <[email protected]> To: [email protected] Cc: [email protected] Sent: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 2:48 PM Subject: A18233-2011 In reply to your email regarding the situation in Ukraine. Mr. Mark and Mrs. Elena Timm [email protected] c.c. [email protected] Dear Mr. and Mrs. Timm: The Office of Prime Minister Stephen Harper has forwarded to me your email on December 15, 2011, regarding the situation in Ukraine. I regret the delay in replying to you. The Government of Canada has voiced its concerns about deteriorating democratic conditions in Ukraine on numerous occasions. In September 2011, Prime Minister Harper and I wrote to President Yanukovych urging him to stand firm on Ukraine's commitments to democracy and human rights. Furthermore, I made clear in my statements of August 6 and October 11, 2011, that Canada is troubled by the apparent political bias in the trial and conviction of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko. I reiterated this position during question period in the House of Commons on November 25 and 30, 2011, as well as in an official statement following the decision on December 23, 2011, of the Kyiv Court of Appeals to uphold Ms. Tymoshenko's conviction. Should you wish to view my statements, I invite you to visit the website of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada at these following addresses: http://www.international.gc.ca/media/aff/news-communiques/2011/224.aspx?lang=eng&view=d, http://www.international.gc.ca/media/aff/news-communiques/2011/296.aspx?view=d, and http://www.international.gc.ca/media/aff/news-communiques/2011/391.aspx?lang=eng&view=d. Regarding investment in Ukraine, Canada believes that engagement rather than isolation is the best way to support continued positive change in Ukraine. Free trade agreements open new markets, increase international trade and investment and create opportunities for businesses, which helps to foster economic growth and prosperity. Economic prosperity, in turn, can help to promote democratic institutions and foster greater respect for human rights. Be assured that Canada will continue to raise its concerns about human rights, democracy, and the rule of law in Ukraine. Canada is a strong supporter of a free and independent Ukraine and remains engaged in assisting Ukrainians in achieving their goal of a prosperous and democratic society. Thank you for taking the time to write. Sincerely, John Baird, P.C., M.P. Minister of Foreign Affairs
  10. Ok this once I will explain "out of context" means you use only what you want to use to make an unbalanced comment rather than quoting the whole text. Also rhetoric is what our PM does and by blindly supporting that does not make you or anyone else right , but then again it would seem that the country is full of people who believe what this government tells them....BLINDLY...with no grounds or facts and that is dangerous. I lived there in Ukraine and Russia , we have our daughter and grand children there who we are trying to get here to keep them safe. Now if you listen to the loud mouth Harper you would think that Canada would help , now reality they have done nothing but talk and the only way we can get them out is with the help of the USA so they will go there. 4 years ago this government was negotiating a trade deal with the criminal Yanukonvict in hopes that by sending money to the crooks there that they would see the light and change...sounds like Chamberlain when he came back from talking with Hitler. So when I talk it is from experience and knowledge and if that does not fit into your realm well to bad but please learn and read before replying again it would go a long ways to knowing what is actually going on.
  11. Now that all the Harper trolls are here I would like to ask what has he done , other than talk a lot , against Russia that is real not perceived ? Please answer in your own words not some post someone else wrote.
  12. Especially when taken out of context by a supposed "older member"
  13. If you need a link to figure that out there is no hope for you but then again as you support him I would suspect no less so I am guessing you are already bent over the kitchen table ?
