    Joan CrockattIt's a hopping night at the Brier with a rocking pre-game show filled with line dancers and pumping music! I got a view from the blue carpet! Tonight two Calgary Centre teams from the Glencoe go head to head: CANADA and ALBERTA! (I'm not picking favorites.) On behalf of federal Sport Minister Bal Gosal, good luck to all the teams at the Tim Horton's Brier.

    Robert SopuckThe Liberals in Thunder Bay are backtracking, trying to cover up a statement in which Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau was very clear. Here's my response. What do you think? Dear Editor, It is the Liberal Party of Canada that is “confused” when it comes to the long-gun registry. Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau stated “I voted to keep the firearms registry a few months ago and if we had a vote tomorrow I would vote once again to keep the long-gun registry” (CBC News, December 3, 2012). After our Government scrapped the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry, Trudeau stated “it’s a very good idea” that Quebec tried to keep its own registry. Those are clear statements. You cannot trust Trudeau’s Liberals. They would bring back the same failed long-gun registry that cost Canadians billions of dollars and did nothing to reduce or eliminate gun violence. New Democrat Leader Thomas Mulcair agrees with Mr. Trudeau, pledging “We will bring in something that allows the police to track every gun in Canada” (National Post, December 8, 2014). Only our Conservative Government will stand up for Canada’s hunters, anglers, trappers, and lawful gun owners.

Through the NHSP, the Government of Canada encourages seniors to share their knowledge, skills and experiences to the benefit of others. Since 2006, the NHSP has funded more than 13,000 projects in hundreds of communities across Canada. NHSP funding is targeted to community-based projects, pan-Canadian projects and pilot projects that focus on issues such as social isolation and intergenerational learning. Economic Action Plan 2014 increased funding for the NHSP by $5 million per year, for a total of $50 million provided to this program annually. Community-based Projects Community-based project funding supports activities that engage seniors and address one or more of the program's five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation and capital assistance. These projects are eligible to receive up to $25,000 per year per organization in grant funding. The NHSP 2014–2015 Call for Proposals for Community-Based Projects was launched on May 13, 2014, and is now closed. Over 1,850 NHSP community-based projects were approved through this call for proposals. Pan-Canadian Projects Pan-Canadian projects provide support to help seniors protect themselves from elder abuse, including financial abuse and fraud abuse. These projects can enable community members to better recognize elder abuse in all its forms and to improve the quality of life, safety and security of seniors. Projects focus on developing tools, resources and promising practices that can be adapted and shared across communities, regions or Canada. These projects are eligible to receive up to $750,000 in funding for up to three years. Pilot Projects Pilot project funding provides support to help address seniors’ isolation by establishing better social support networks and resources and initiating community interventions. It also supports intergenerational learning projects that help seniors develop new interests and share their knowledge and experience with others. These pilot projects are receiving up to $100,000 in federal funding over a maximum of 24 months, 50 percent of which is being matched with funding from other sources.

    Kelly BlockToday, Statistics Canada announced the Canadian economy grew at an annualized rate of 2.4% in the fourth quarter of 2014. This was above market expectations of a 2.0% growth. Our Conservative government is focused on what matters to Canadians – helping families make ends meet by lowering taxes, and protecting and creating jobs. While we’re focused on creating jobs, Justin Trudeau is pushing a high tax, high debt agenda that will threaten jobs and set working families back. How can someone who thinks budgets “balance themselves” be trusted with jobs and the economy? At the same time, Mulcair’s NDP continues to push risky high-tax schemes like a $20 billion carbon tax that would hurt Canada’s economy and kill Canadian jobs.

    Gail SheaThe PEIFA and the Groundfish Advisory Committee recognized the Canadian Coast Guard, and in particular the crew of the SS Pointe Caveau for their assistance with retrieving the first satellite pop up tag released from a halibut tagged through the PEI Halibut Research Project. The information retrieved from the tag was able to pinpoint where the fish had travelled throughout the past year and gave important insight into the life history of halibut PEI. A reward of $500 was earmarked for each satellite tag retrieval. On behalf of the Commanding Officer and crew of the Pointe Caveau, a donation was made to the Royal Canadian Legion on their behalf. Shown left; Craig Avery, president of the PEIFA, Minister Shea, Kip Halloway, receiving the $500 donation on behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion and Commanding Officer Murray MacDonald.
