Harper announces family tax cut, child care benefit boost

October 30, 2014 , Vaughan, Ontario

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced new measures to help make life more affordable for Canadian families. He was joined by Joe Oliver, Minister of Finance, Julian Fantino, Minister of Veterans Affairs, Candice Bergen, Minister of State (Social Development), and Stella Ambler, Member of Parliament for Mississauga South.

The proposed new measures include:

The Family Tax Cut, a federal tax credit that will allow a higher-income spouse to transfer up to $50,000 of taxable income to a spouse in a lower tax bracket. The credit will provide tax relief – capped at $2,000 – for couples with children under the age of 18, effective for the 2014 tax year. Income splitting is helping seniors across the country, which is why the Government is now proposing similar relief for families.

Increasing the Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) for children under age six. As of January 1, 2015, parents will receive a benefit of $160 per month for each child under the age of six – up from $100 per month. In a year, parents will receive up to $1,920 per child.

Expanding the UCCB to children aged six through 17. As of January 1, 2015, under the expanded UCCB, parents will receive a benefit of $60 per month for children aged six through 17. In a year, parents will receive up to $720 per child.

Increasing the Child Care Expense Deduction dollar limits by $1,000, effective for the 2015 tax year. The maximum amounts that can be claimed will increase to $8,000 from $7,000 for children under age seven, to $5,000 from $4,000 for children aged seven through 16, and to $11,000 from $10,000 for children who are eligible for the Disability Tax Credit.

Families can claim the Family Tax Cut in the spring of 2015 when they file their 2014 tax returns. They will begin to receive payments under the enhanced UCCB in July 2015. The July UCCB payment will include up to six months of benefits to cover the period from January through June 2015.

The enhanced UCCB will replace the existing Child Tax Credit for the 2015 and subsequent taxation years.

The enhanced UCCB will replace the existing Child Tax Credit for the 2015 and subsequent taxation years.

Quick Facts

All families with children will benefit from the new measures introduced by our Government. The average tax relief and benefits for these families will be $1,140 in 2015.
Low and middle-income families will receive two-thirds of the overall benefits provided by the package.
The Family Tax Cut will eliminate or significantly reduce the difference in the federal tax payable by a one-earner couple relative to a two-earner couple with a similar family income.
Earlier this month, the Government announced its intention to double the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit and make it refundable. The maximum amount of expenses that may be claimed under the credit will be doubled from its current limit to $1,000 for the 2014 tax year and subsequent tax years, and the credit will be made refundable effective for the 2015 and subsequent tax years.
Canadians at all income levels are benefiting from federal tax relief measures introduced since 2006, with low and middle-income Canadians receiving proportionately greater relief.
Previous tax-relief measures introduced by the Government since 2006 have resulted in a tax reduction of approximately $3,400 in 2014 for an average two-earner family with two children.

Quotes

“Our Government is focused on helping hard-working Canadian families make ends meet, by making important priorities like child care and after-school sports more affordable.

“Our Government is fulfilling its promise to balance the federal budget. We are now in a position to fulfill our promise to help Canadian families balance theirs.” – Prime Minister Stephen Harper

Statement to the media from the wives of Constables Larche, Ross and Gevaudan

2014 10 29

The RCMP in New Brunswick has been asked to share the following statement that has been prepared by the wives of Cst. Doug Larche, Cst. Dave Ross and Cst. Fabrice Gevaudan.

"The court proceedings over the past day and a half have provided us with a clear picture of the events that took place on June 4, 2014 and showed to us the incredible amount of work done by the RCMP and other police services on that day and the days since.

This is another step in our healing process and has allowed us to better understand what happened that day and to grasp how many people were involved, from RCMP officers, firefighters, paramedics, dispatchers and other people from the community. We are truly grateful for everything you’ve done.

As we sat together and witnessed the proceedings, we were thankful to be able to support each other and want to thank the crown prosecutors, Cameron Gunn and P.J. Veinot, for the work they did.

While our attention the past couple of days has been focused on the court, our thoughts have also been with the families of Corporal Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.  We want to publicly express our condolences to them.  We all share the same grief, that of losing a loved one."

Thank you

Nadine Larche, Rachael Ross, Angela Gevaudan

Couple can't seek damages in language feud with Air Canada: SCC

Angela Mulholland, CTVNews.ca ,  October 28, 2014

http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/couple-can-t-seek-damages-in-language-feud-with-air-canada-scc-1.2074890#ixzz3HYXIQBLG

The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that Air Canada is not obligated to offer compensation to an Ottawa couple whose  rights were violated when the airline was not able to serve them in French.

In a 5-2 ruling, the court said "there is no dispute that the airline breached its obligations to supply services in French under... the Official Languages Act." But it said it agreed with an earlier Federal Court of Appeal ruling that found the airline did not need to offer the couple damages because the incidents occurred on international flights.

The case involved a couple from Ottawa, Michel and Lynda Thibodeau, who made three trips between Ottawa and the U.S., aboard Air Canada Jazz in 2009.

They stated they could not get service in French when they checked in at the airport, nor at the boarding gate nor aboard the flights. They also complained that an announcement about a change of baggage carousel was made only in English.

While the Thibodeaus are both fluently bilingual, their language of choice was French and they argued they were entitled to be served in French under the Official Languages Act.

Europeans Recall Fireball Whiskey Over a Sweetener Also Used in Antifreeze

Oct., 28, 2014 , The Daily Beast

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/10/28/frathouse-favorite-fireball-whiskey-recalled-in-europe.html

Bottles of Fireball whiskey, the insanely popular cinnamon-flavored frathouse favorite, are being recalled in some European countries—because it’s got too much of a chemical used in antifreeze (among other things) inside.

Late last week, the whiskey’s European bottler informed the makers of Fireball that they were out of compliance with European regulations. The Fireballers prepare two versions: a recipe for Canada and the United States containing the chemical, propylene glycol, and a European version that has less of the stuff. Propylene glycol is used for a variety of industrial, cosmetic, and food production uses. In your Prestone Low-Tox, it's an antifreeze. In Fireball, it's used as a sweetener, its makers say. (And yes, according to the Centers for Disease Control, it's "generally regarded as safe for use in food.")

“It appears that we shipped our North American formula to Europe and found that one ingredient is out of compliance with European regulations,” a Fireball spokeswoman told The Daily Beast in an email. “Finland, Sweden and Norway have asked to recall those specific batches which is what we are doing.” (There’s no word of an American recall.)

Fireball has exploded in popularity in the United States, prompting expansion in Europe. Earlier this year, the fraternity news website Total Frat Move declared Fireball “the most popular shot for college students.”

Off to Shoppers to buy pepsi, the single choc bars on offer and cold pills ("NOT flu pills").

Back he comes with flu pills and the choc bars that instead of being the size on offer @ 75c each he has those that are 50% bigger but $2 each.  :o

Half the value. :(
