Ontario should be renamed "Titanic"

by: Adam

I’ll start with Happy Family Day – officially the worst holiday of the year in Ontario.  A paid holiday that does absolutely nothing for the economy and was just another example of how the Ontario Liberals are a waste of space in government.  Now that’s out of the way…let me get onto another issue with Ontario. February 13, 2015, a day that will go down in history as the first Canadian news media was no longer able to sustain itself in today’s technology and in this country. Over 200 people lost their jobs on this day. Only a month before it was announced that Target retail stores was no longer going to be operating out of Canada with over 17,600 out of work, that same day Sony had declared it was going to close down its retail outlets with another 90 people out of work. Tim Horton’s had over 350…

The CRA is now in the collections business

by: Adam

When your in small business you have to get used to the CRA being your business partner.  It’s not like you have any choice in the matter. When you open a business you are officially partnered with the Canada Revenue Agency.  This business partner is the most ruthless and vicious that you will ever encounter. Let me advise you that they are not your friend. What is interesting is they like to think that they are. They have the friendliest tone and voice and they never yell and make you feel like your time is always available for them.   I have had my fair share of government audits in the 11 years I have been in business. Most are just a waste of time and others they have found reasons for me to pay a hefty penalty and interest on a late payment of my Source Deductions.  This interest and penalties will crush…

BlackBerry Invades Secret Service

by: Adam

Fellow Blackberry users, yes all 4 of you! (I am proudly still one of them) So as RIM slowly ramps up their campaign (just recently sent out an e-newsletter last week) – View Online letting the general public know they are coming back with a fresh approach have won an important US security clearance before the OS is even out. This is the first time for the mobile manufacturer to have had their OS pass security set out by government officials of the United States before the device is actually released. Otherwise known as the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) this allows government agencies to be able deploy BlackBerry 10 smartphones and their enterprise service on launch day of the device. No other mobile device manufacturer, Apple, Samsung, Nokia, etc., has passed security protocol like BlackBerry has and this is a huge area that RIM’s competitors haven’t been able to…

Air now ONLY $1.00 for 1 min Includes HST!

by: Adam

Even in Roman times there has never been any log reports of anyone charging for air. Of course, the years 2012 and anything is for sale. I was blown away the other day as I saw air for $1. The sad part is I totally understand and appreciate why they have to charge a dollar. The air is supplied (by the world) which is absolutely free until the government can figure out how to tax how many breaths each Ontario/Canadian citizen take in a day and can put a price to it. The cost comes from the Hydro that is fed to the machine that creates the pressure the pump it out. How funny this was a courtesy service only 15 years ago, yet today comes at the cost. Less than 5 years ago it was only $.25. When I asked the gas attendant when did the price go to…
