The Hockey playoffs have begun and the NBA playoffs begin tomorrow, and there is an F1 race this weekend as well, sounds like a good weekend to me. Will the Sens be able to come back from their first game defeat? Who knows, but it will be fun to watch, no matter what.
April 30th is not that far away, have you got your taxes in yet? I have my refund already, but I must remember to sign up for direct deposit, as we also remember that Government Cheques are going away. Do a good job on your taxes, make sure you get all the deductions and credits you are allowed, and then, go to your employer and fill in a T1213 form (if you can use those credits in the coming year), so that you get paid the maximum you can, and stop loaning money to the government.
More interesting revelations coming out of the Duffy Trial this week (speaking of Senators), alleged contract shuffling and alleged payments offered to volunteers? Goodness the wacky things that go on in Ottawa. Where do I sign up for one of those paid volunteer jobs?
In Ontario, we will finally be able to buy beer in grocery stores, but for the right to do this, there will also be a new Beer Tax ? Ontario the good strikes again, and only 450 stores will get “permits” to sell beer? And a new tax on beer? Ms. Wynne allow me to add my voice to the folks asking #WTF? Remember there is a new budget coming on April 23rd too (Ontario Provincial that is).
Spring has sprung in Ottawa, and it is about bloody time!
My Writings for Week Ending April 17th
Spring has sprung in Ottawa, and we even have crocii sprouting in the gardens, a nice change from February:
- There are more jobs in Canada last month, and unemployment stayed steady, but is More Part Time Jobs In Canada, really a good thing or not?
- So you can now get the same mortgage deals as bank employees? Really or is this an Employee Discount Scam ?
