Council to hear plan to mitigate problems with proposed parcel tax

City council will be hearing about a Lot Line Consolidation Plan to address issues some residents are having with a controversial new 10-year parcel tax proposed in the city's 2016 budget.

As a result of small parcels in that area, it was, according to a city report, 'common practice' for residents to purchase two adjacent parcels and build a home straddling both, so as to have adequate space for a home.

Emergence of new, low-cost technologies requires further de-regulation of Canadian broadcasting sector

The emergence of low-cost methods of creating and distributing broadcasting content means that the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission’s (CRTC) traditional policies to protect and subsidize Canadian content are increasingly unsustainable, finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank.

A political mindset sets in

There's a window of culture political parties will do whatever it takes to win.

The headlines were emphatic: 'Quick wins' amounted to little for NDP, 'Quick wins' report lands with a dull thud.

But behind the headlines something unsettling: a window into a culture of seeming impunity, where players are told anything goes, do whatever it takes to win.
