Doctors angry at opposition to planned tax changes urge Ottawa to forge

first_imgTORONTO – Doctors across Canada who support Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s proposed tax reforms say they want their voices to be heard above the din of criticism from colleagues and medical societies.To make their point, they have been putting signatures on a letter they plan to send to Morneau this week.“We were really fed up with the narrative that our colleagues were putting forth and that our medical associations were putting forth as the only opinion out there,” said Dr. Sarah Giles. “We’ll probably have friends never talk to us again. People are ridiculously emotional about this.”Among other things, Morneau wants to stop allowing some tax-saving mechanisms through incorporation that physicians say are essential given that they have no access to benefits other employees enjoy. Angry medical associations say doctors will leave Canada for the U.S., and female physicians will be disproportionately hurt.The president of the Canadian Medical Association said in a recent statement that a delegation had told Morneau that doctors rely on the measures now in place for working capital needed for expanding their practices and, among other things, to deal with “unanticipated costs, sick or parental leave, staff turnover, and other business requirements.”Signatories to the open letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Canadian Press, see it much differently. They argue that scrapping the current system will promote tax fairness and give the government more money to spend on health care.“We need adequate tax revenues to fund social programs such as affordable housing, pharmacare, social assistance, legal aid, and the health-care system itself,” the letter states. “These programs directly impact the health of our patients, and we believe it is important for us to contribute to their sustainability through an adequate tax base.”Giles, who does stints working with remote Indigenous communities and abroad with Doctors without Borders, said diverting dollars from doctors toward improved care would benefit her money-strapped patients far more than it would harm physicians.“There’s a lot of catastrophising,” she said of those upset at Morneau’s plans. “Why are they hanging their hats on this issue? It feels very self-serving.”Canadian Medical Association data suggest a large majority of physicians are incorporated. That means they can access various measures to reduce their taxes despite earning significantly more on average — upwards of $225,000 annually before taxes — than other Canadians.“These benefits are advantageous mostly to certain incorporated doctors,” the letter states. “It also seems unfair that these benefits are not available to Canadians with similar incomes who cannot incorporate.”The physicians do say in their letter the proposed changes should come with a transition plan for those affected and as part of a “comprehensive review” of tax policy.Rita McCracken, a family doctor in Vancouver who said she was bombarded with advice on incorporating to save taxes even when she was in medical school, expressed disappointment at what she considers reactionary physician organizations who should be pushing for improvements to the health-care system. Any suggestion the proposed measures are “anti-feminist” is misguided, she said.McCracken contacted colleagues with the aim of expressing a fact-based alternative view, leading to the letter to Morneau.“It just seemed to us there was some motivation from very high earners who wanted to continue to be able to pay less tax,” McCracken said. “(But) people who make more money should pay more taxes.”Lesley Barron, an incorporated general surgeon in Georgetown, Ont., said she supports the proposals even though her family’s bottom line will take a hit. Morneau’s approach will help make the tax system more fair, she said.“I don’t believe it makes sense for physicians to fund retirement, benefits, and maternity leave through these tax loopholes,” Barron said.Another letter signatory, Ritika Goel, a family doctor with an inner city practice in Toronto, said the din of criticism from many doctors makes it important an alternative perspective be heard. The current system isn’t the way to address issues Morneau critics are raising, she said. Goel, who is currently on leave to look after her baby, says maternity benefits are in fact available to doctors in Ontario.“Beyond that, I’m in an income position that has allowed me to have savings to take maternity leave,” she said.last_img read more

Man killed in Stoney Creek QEW headon crash

(Updated) Impaired driving charges have been laid in this morning’s fatal head-on collision on the Queen Elizabeth Way in Stoney Creek.A 28 year old man, driving a Toyota Tundra collided head-on with a Buick, killing the car’s driver. Police have not released his name.OPP sergeant Kerry Schmidt told CHCH News, “we have some independent witness who observed the (pick-up truck) travelling in the Toronto-bound direction in the Niagara-bound lanes.” “If people were to get on the highway in the wrong direction, there are signs telling you that you are going the wrong way.”Police had received a tip earlier this morning that a pick-up truck was travelling the wrong way on the QEW but by the time they got there, it was too late. Emergency crews taped down the tarp before sending the Buick to another location to identify the man inside, while others swept away the broken pieces that remained after this tragic collision. The pick-up driver was taken to Hamilton General Hospital with injuries but is expected to make a full recovery. “He is currently under arrest by the OPP, facing charges of impaired driving causing death.” The highway was closed for 5 hours, causing massive back-ups on the QEW and South Service Rd. read more

TSX down economic worries trump strong bank earnings consumer confidence data

TSX down, economic worries trump strong bank earnings, consumer confidence data TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed lower Friday with buyers inclined to do little at the end of a negative week amid falling commodity prices and a strong earnings report from an American banking giant.The S&P/TSX composite index eased 31.91 points to 12,202.04 while the TSX Venture Exchange was 7.13 points lower at 1,292.81.The Canadian dollar closed down 0.07 of a cent at 102.11 cents US.New York markets were also listless after JPMorgan handed in a record quarterly profit of US$5.7 billion, up 34 per cent from a year ago as the bank set aside less money for bad loans. Earnings were $1.40 per share, far exceeding the $1.21 predicted by analysts polled by FactSet.Revenue rose six per cent to $25.1 billion, beating expectations of $24.4 billion.JPMorgan stock dropped 48 cents to US$41.62. However, the stock has already come back strongly from a low of $31 in early June after the bank announced a surprise trading loss that ballooned to $6 billion.Indexes also failed to find support from a strong consumer confidence reading.The Dow Jones industrials added 2.46 points to 13,328.85 as the University of Michigan’s index for October came in at 83.1, up from 78.3 in September.The Nasdaq composite index shed 5.3 points to 3,044.11, while the S&P 500 index was down 4.25 points at 1,428.59.Earnings expectations are low for the third quarter — many companies report results next week —as the eurozone debt crisis continues to take a toll on economies in Europe, affecting the results of multinationals. The malaise has also spread to developing economies such as China.Analysts expect a 2.1 per cent year-over-year decline in S&P 500 operating earnings, which would be the first year-over-year drop since the recession that followed the 2008 financial collapse.Traders also took in better-than-expected earnings from U.S. bank Wells Fargo. It posted third-quarter earnings per share of 88 cents, beating estimates by a penny. Revenue rose eight per cent to $21.21 billion, which was slightly lower than analysts’ estimates and its shares fell 93 cents to US$34.25.The TSX ended the week down 217 points or 1.74 per cent in the wake of a gloomy assessment of the global economy by the International Monetary Fund, which reduced its growth forecast for the world economy to 3.3 per cent this year from its previous estimate of 3.5 per cent.Still, the TSX is up about 7.5 per cent from the market lows of early June, largely because of a commitment from European Central Bank president Mario Draghi to do whatever it takes to preserve the monetary union and another round of quantitative easing by the U.S. Federal Reserve.“There had to be a let down and we are getting it,” said Pat McHugh, senior managing director and Canadian equities strategist at Manulife Asset Management.“This move from the time Draghi made his comments (in early August) to now has all been policy driven, it hasn’t been earnings driven, it hasn’t been fundamentally driven. For the near term, I’m afraid I don’t see any triggers that will move this market.”The gold sector led decliners, down about 1.3 per cent as December bullion was off $10.90 to US$1,759.70 an ounce. On the TSX, Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) faded 73 cents to C$38.31.The base metals sector drifted down 0.45 per cent as metal prices backed off with December copper down five cents to US$3.70 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) dropped 50 cents to C$29.89.The energy component was slightly higher as the November crude contact on the New York Mercantile Exchange shed early gains to move down 21 cents to US$91.86 a barrel. Prices have advanced this past week on fears that the conflict in Syria could widen and threaten oil shipments from the Mideast. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) gained 24 cents to C$30.25.Tech stocks led advancers with MacDonald & Dettwiler and Associates (TSX:MDA) ahead 82 cents to $50.72.It was a light day on the economic calendar.In the U.S., a second month of sharp gains in gasoline costs drove wholesale prices higher in September. But outside of the surge in energy, prices were well contained. Wholesale prices rose 1.1 per cent in September following a 1.7 per cent gain in August. by News Staff Posted Oct 12, 2012 4:36 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

(AP Photo/Mel Evans)GOVERNOR CHRIS CHRISTIE and the cast of MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore’ have announced that the shore is back following Superstorm Sandy.The rock band ‘Fun’ whose anthem ‘We Are Young’ were also brought in to announce the reopening of the oceanfront playground that was devastated by the 29 October storm.“This is known as a happy place,” said Paul ‘Pauly D’ Del Vecchio, one of the cast members of ‘Jersey Shore’, which was filmed here until wrapping up last year. “Right after the storm, it was the exact opposite: dead, silent. To see this place being rebuilt makes me happy.”The aftermath left behind by Superstorm Sandy. (AP Photo/Mel Evans, File)The show was broadcast from Seaside Heights, where the storm swept a roller coaster into the ocean. The roller coaster was taken away this month, but Casino Pier, the seaside amusement park where it used to sit, plans to have 18 rides open this summer.Christie said about 80 percent of the shore will look as it did last summer, and acknowledged more work needs to be done to fully recover. He is to tour parts of the storm-hit shore next Tuesday with President Obama.Tourism is a $38 billion industry in New Jersey, and shore towns are counting on a good summer to help them recoup major losses they incurred after the storm.Cast members of ‘Jersey Shore, Mike Sorrentino, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Vinny Guadagnino, and Deena Cortese walk to the boardwalk in Seaside Heights.

Liverpool make huge Salah decision

first_imgSalah has been sensational ever since he came to Liverpool from Roma last summer, managing to score as many as 43 goals in this season alone and even looking to break the club record for most goals in a single season.This has caused all of the top European clubs to consider bidding for the Egyptian as it seems he is just getting started right now – Barcelona and Real Madrid have been heavily linked with interest in the Reds sensational player.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…However, Liverpool are already taking precautions – they are ready to double his salary to as much as 185 000 pounds per week in order for them to be able to keep him at Anfield, according to the Daily Star.He currently earns 90 000 per week and the management seems desperate to tie him down and stop him from departing from the club – he is one of the main reasons Liverpool are in the top four in the Premier League and in the semi-finals of the Champions League as well.last_img read more

Company considers Kodiak for site of second launch pad

first_imgRocket Lab Electron on the pad at LC-1. (Photo courtesy of Rocket Lab)A company that launches small satellites into orbit is considering Kodiak as the site of its second launch pad.Listen nowRocket Lab has an existing relationship with the Alaska Aerospace Corporation, which has offered support services to the company’s launches in New Zealand.Rocket Lab’s launch site would be its first on American soil, but it is an American company. CEO Peter Beck explains Rocket Lab is headquartered in California and funded through venture capital firms in Silicon Valley.But their launch pad is located in New Zealand, and Beck says there’s a simple explanation for that.“There’s just a lot of stuff in America,” Beck said.Beck means planes, trains and automobiles. And boats. He says every time a company launches a rocket, they have to close off large chunks of the air and sea.“You run into a real issue with the kind of launch frequency that we’re trying to achieve by just having U.S. launch sites alone,” Beck said. “We’re licensed down in our launch site in New Zealand to launch every 72 hours and, when you contrast that against America as a country launching 25 times a year, you can see how that has a big effect.”Beck says he started the company in 2006 to serve a growing demand for high-frequency launches for small satellites. Now they’re expanding to a second launch pad, which they may place at the Alaska Aerospace Corporation’s Kodiak facility, but they’re also considering Cape Canaveral in Florida, Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia and Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.“We’ll continue to develop launch sites, but this one’s very strategic for us because it serves a real need for a U.S. government customer and also a U.S. commercial customer who may not want to launch out of New Zealand,” Beck said.Beck says a couple of the elements they’ll consider in their location choice is existing infrastructure, regulatory environment, and how often they can launch. According to Rocket Lab, they’ll announce their decision next month, and they hope to set the new launch pad up in 2019.last_img read more

Tesla unveils Tesla Energy batteries for homes and business

first_img Tesla Motors on unveiled Tesla Energy on Thursday (30 April) – storage systems or batteries for homes, companies and utilities that will expand its business beyond electric vehicles and tap into a fast-growing area of the energy industry.Chief Executive Elon Musk said the companys goal was to Welcome everyone, basically to the announcement of Tesla Energy. What I am going to talk about tonight is a fundamental transformation of how the world works, how energy is delivered across the earth.In Teslas view, such storage systems could become part of a fossil-fuel-free lifestyle in which people can have solar panels on their roof generating electricity to power their home and recharge their electric car batteries.The smallest battery unveiled on Thursday, known as Powerwall, is housed in a six-inch-wide container that is meant to be hung inside a garage or on the outside wall of a house.At $3,500 (£2274) for a 10kWh model, excluding inverter and installation prices, the Powerwall can be used for backup power or to store solar energy.If youre thinking of buying a battery, well what does this provide you? Well it gives you piece of mind, if there is a cut in the utilities youre always going to have power. If youre in a place that is very cold, you dont have to worry about being out of power if there is an ice storm. You could actually go, if you want, completely off grid. You could take your solar panels, charge the battery packs and thats all youd use. So it gives you safety, security and it gives you a complete and affordable solution, and the cost of this is $3500 , Musk announced.Tesla has several hundred batteries installed with SolarCity systems in California already. The growth of those projects has been helped by a subsidy from Californias public utility regulator.The CEO surprised the audience by announcing that the evening had in fact been powered by stored sunlight.Oh, wow this grid is actually zero, this entire night has been powered by batteries. (clapping and cheering) Not only that, but the batteries were charged by the solar panels on the roof of this building. So this entire night, everything you are experiencing is stored sunlight, Musk said.Utilities have also been seeking out energy storage to help manage increasing amounts of renewable energy on the grid. To address that market, Musk unveiled what he called the power pack, a 100 kWh battery block that is meant to help smooth out power from intermittent solar and wind energy production or add energy to the grid quickly when demand levels are high.Tesla already has several utility-scale batteries deployed on the grid in California, which requires its biggest utilities to source large amounts of energy storage.So we want to show people that most importantly that this is possible, if you look at that, that is the future we could have, where the curve slowly rolls over and goes to zero, no incremental CO2. Thats the future we need to have, and thats something that, and the path that Ive talked about, the solar panels and the batteries. Its the only path that I know that can do this and I think its something that we must do and that we can do and we will do, Musk said.Tesla will initially manufacture the batteries at its automobile factory in California but will move production to its planned gigafactory in Nevada next year.Deutsche Bank estimated sales of stationary battery storage systems for homes and commercial uses could yield as much as $4.5bn in revenue for Tesla. Analysts expect Tesla will build stationary storage systems around the same basic batteries it will produce for its vehicles at the large factory the company is building in Nevada.Though valued at just $200m in 2012, the energy storage industry is expected to grow to $19bn by 2017, according to research firm IHS CERA.Tesla is not the only player in energy storage. Coda Energy, which rose from the ashes of a failed EV maker and is now owned by Fortress Investment and startups backed by the likes of Total, GE and Siemens are among the many companies going after shares of the stationary storage market.

Boko Haram killed at least 60 in Nigeria Amnesty

first_imgRann, Nigeria : Map of the city of Rann in Nigeria, destruction detected by satellite images. Photo: AFPBoko Haram killed at least 60 civilians in an attack on the remote town of Rann in northeast Nigeria earlier this week, Amnesty International said on Friday.The human rights group’s Nigeria director Osai Ojigho said “at least 60 people” were killed while satellite imagery showed “mass burning” of structures used by displaced people.”Eleven bodies were found within Rann town, and 49 were found outside,” the group said in an emailed statement, adding that some 50 people were still missing.It quoted one of 10 civilian militia members who travelled to Rann to bury the dead as saying the bodies found outside the town all had gunshot wounds.”This attack on civilians who have already been displaced by the bloody conflict may amount to possible war crime, and those responsible must be brought to justice,” said Ojigho.The death toll made it the “deadliest” by Boko Haram on Rann, she added.In January 2017, a botched Nigerian air strike intended to hit jihadists killed at least 112 people as aid workers distributed food.- Burning buildings -Rann, which is some 175 kilometres (110 miles) northeast of the Borno state capital, Maiduguri, has now been hit four times since March last year.The first attack killed three aid workers and saw three others kidnapped. Two of the three were later executed. The second attack happened in early December.On 14 January, fighters loyal to the Boko Haram faction led by Abubakar Shekau attacked a military position.Some 9,000 people fled across the border into Cameroon but were sent back, as troops from Nigeria’s eastern neighbour were deployed to Rann as reinforcements.Cameroonian forces were withdrawn last Sunday, which the United Nations said forced more than 30,000 people to flee in fear of another attack.AFP has been told the remaining Nigerian soldiers also withdrew because there were not enough of them to fight off Boko Haram if they came in greater numbers.Amnesty’s Ojigho said “environmental sensors detected fires” in and around Rann on Monday and Tuesday, indicating the jihadists returned after the troops pulled out.Analysis of satellite images indicated the two attacks had left most of the town “heavily damaged or destroyed”, and “well over 100” structures had been burned down.Many of the structures destroyed date back to 2017, indicating they had been constructed for those who had fled to Rann in search of refuge from the fighting.- Call to investigate -Rann had been home to some 35,000 internally displaced people (IDPs), according to the International Organization for Migration.Amnesty International said it wanted Nigeria to investigate the withdrawal of troops, as it “may have left tens of thousands of civilians exposed” to attack.On Wednesday, the Norwegian Refugee Council called on Cameroon to keep open its borders to those fleeing Boko Haram attacks.More than 27,000 people have been killed in nearly 10 years of fighting, while some 1.8 million others remain homeless and reliant on aid for food, shelter, healthcare and water.The UN this week said it needed $848 million (741 million euros) to fund projects for affected civilians in Borno state and two other northeast states over the next three years.An additional $135 million was required to help the 228,500 Nigerian refugees who have fled to neighbouring Cameroon, Chad and Niger, it added.last_img read more

first_imgPresident Donald Trump declared Monday opened his first visit to Israel, saying he sees growing recognition among Muslim nations that they share a “common cause” with Israel in their determination to counter the threats posed by Iran. Arriving directly from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Trump expressed his hope for cooperation among U.S. allies in the Middle East. His second stop on the nine-day tour aimed to test the waters for reviving the dormant Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Trump, who had previously suggested that it would be easier than anticipated to solve the conflict that has vexed his predecessors for decades, said that conditions were right in both Israel and the Arab world to strike what he has called “the ultimate deal.” “We have before us a rare opportunity to bring security and stability and peace to this region and to its people,” Trump said upon his arrival in Tel Aviv. Trump’s first stop was a meeting in Jerusalem with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin. In a statement following the meeting, Trump addressed his meetings the previous day with Arab and Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia, and said that there is growing realization that they share a “common cause with you” in their determination to defeat extremism and deter “the threat posed by Iran.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Trump “a true friend” to Israel and expressed optimism about the president’s role in the Middle East peace process. But obstacles have emerged that may complicate the relationship between the White House and the Knesset. Trump, wearing a yarmulke, on Monday became the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall. Trump touched it in prayer and, adhering to tradition, placed a note in a deep crevice. He also toured the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which is believed to be where Jesus was crucified and the location of his tomb. On Tuesday, he is set to meet with Abbas in the West Bank and deliver a speech at the Israeli Museum. But Trump may face concerns from Israelis over the new $110 billion arms deal he announced during his previous stop in Saudi Arabia as well as questions from Israeli officials about revelations that he disclosed sensitive Israeli intelligence to Russian officials. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, speaking to reporters onboard Air Force One, said the U.S. could provide clarifications to Israel about the disclosure but said, “I don’t know that there’s anything to apologize for.” White House aides have also tried to play down expectations for significant progress on the peace process during Trump’s stop, casting the visit as symbolic. Tillerson referred to the visit as “a moment in time” and suggested that the U.S. would take a more active role in the future in brokering a deal if both sides make serious commitments. Trump, whose unorthodox approach has spurred some hope on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has done no such managing of expectations. He boldly stated that achieving peace is “something that I think is, frankly, maybe not as difficult as people have thought over the years.” in March during a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. “But we need two willing parties,” he said then. “We believe Israel is willing. We believe you’re willing. And if you both are willing, we’re going to make a deal.” And Trump made one symbolic gesture Monday in bridging the gap between Israel and the Arab world. His flight on Air Force One was believed to be the first direct flight between Saudi Arabia and Israel, nations that have limited diplomatic relations. Even the White House press corps making the trip on a separate plane from Riyadh to Tel Aviv had to make a technical stop in Cyprus before proceeding to Israel. Netanyahu said he hoped an Israeli prime minister could soon make the same flight. Gulf Arab countries long have been suspicious about Iran, whether that’s the United Arab Emirates’ long-running dispute over Iran seizing several Persian Gulf islands from it in 1971 to Bahrain’s simmering anger over a 1981 coup attempt it blamed on the newly formed Islamic Republic. The Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations further fueled Gulf nations’ worries about Iran’s regional intentions, especially as it backs Shiite militias fighting the Islamic State group in Iraq and supported the government of embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad that many had opposed through supporting rebel groups there. Trump is seeking to ease concerns that his policies wouldn’t be as beneficial to Israel as once believed. He has taken a tougher line on settlements than Israeli officials had believed, urging restraint but though not calling for a full halt to construction. Trump has also retreated from a campaign pledge to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, bending to the same diplomatic and security concerns as other presidents who have made similar promises. Palestinians, who viewed Trump’s victory with some trepidation, are said to have been pleasantly surprised by Trump’s openness during a recent meeting with Abbas in Washington. And on the eve of Trump’s visit, an Israeli official said Netanyahu’s cabinet has approved confidence building measures with the Palestinians, including allowing building in a West Bank area. The official briefed on Sunday’s meeting said the package includes building permits for Palestinians in Area C that has largely been off limits to Palestinian development until now. He spoke on condition of anonymity pending a formal government announcement. He did not elaborate and it is not clear how big the plan is. One point of contention in the talks: the fate of east Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war. The area is home to sensitive religious sites, including the Western Wall, the holiest place where Jews can pray. Israel considers the entire city to be its capital while the international community says the future of east Jerusalem, claimed by the Palestinians, must be resolved through negotiations. The Trump administration drew the ire of some Israelis this week when officials declined to state that the Western Wall was part of Israel, as has been U.S. policy. And while Netanyahu in the past has expressed support for the establishment of a Palestinian state, he has been vague about this goal since Trump gained power. Sharelast_img read more

Mukherjee also responded to the CPI(M) MLAs who were shouting inside the Assembly on the cut money issue, saying that roads in various stretches used to remain in bad shape during the Left Front regime. The minister also reminded them that no tangible development had taken place during the Left Front regime and accused CPI(M) of lending support to the BJP. “Their protest against BJP is just show-off,” alleged the minister. He also said that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has instructed the department to uplift the socio-economic condition of people in the villages. Following the Chief Minister’s instruction, the department has ensured that 8 crore people in villages can avail the benefits of various government schemes. Mukherjee again criticised the previous Left Front government, saying that they used to tell the Centre that the construction of roads was completed and therefore no funds were required for the same.last_img read more
