Open Letter to the Editor
The Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and of the Official Opposition, the Honourable Andrew Scheer, announced on March 6th, the next step in his plan to make life more affordable for Canadians.
A Conservative government, led by Andrew Scheer, will remove the Goods and Services Tax (GST) from home heating and energy bills, which will save the average Canadian household $107 per year.
“It’s hard enough to get ahead these days without the government taking money out of your pocket,” Scheer said. “Heating your home in the winter isn’t a luxury for Canadians. It is a necessity. We don’t tax other basic necessities like groceries and we shouldn’t be taxing home heating.”
The Conservative leader emphasized that under his plan Canadians will not only save the cost of the federal tax on their home heating and energy bills, they will also save hundreds of dollars more each year after he cancels Justin Trudeau’s Carbon Tax.
“His Carbon Tax will increase the cost of everyday essentials like gasoline, groceries, and home heating and make life more expensive for everyone. As Prime Minister, I will put this money back in the pockets of Canadians where it belongs,” Scheer said.
“Canada should have a government that helps people achieve their dreams, not a government that stands in the way,” Scheer said. “My plan to remove the GST from home heating and energy bills is just one of the ways that a Conservative government will help Canadians get ahead.”
To the Editor,
On Aug. 26, the Cruisin’ Classics Car Club hosted our 2014 Appreciation Cruise-In at Emmanuel Community Church. With weel over one hundred luck-of-the-draw prizes, 10 special prizes and 229 classic vehicles, the event was a great success.
Participants and visitors alike were encouraged to contribute non-perishable food, paper products and/or cash to Operation Scugog. As a result of everyone’s generosity, we filled two trucks and donations totaled $804! This is in addition to the $145 and another truckload of paper products collected by the club in the spring.
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the church, the 16 themed sponsors, our weekly and corporate sponsors and all participants. Without your support we could not have had such a prosperous cruise-in season. Mother Nature, however, could have been a bit more cooperative.
As we celebrate our 25th anniversary in 2015, we would like to extend an open invitation to you and everyone in the community with an interest in 1989-and-older classic vehicles to join us on Tuesday evenings from May to August. Over the winter, visit our web site at cruisinclassics.blogspot.ca.
President, Cruisin’ Classic Car Club
