Marvin and Ch­eryl en­joyed a 3½ week Euro­pean trip with 2 other cou­ples, a cousin and his wife from Ra­dium and friends from Ed­mon­ton. They vis­ited Venice, Florence, Rome, Athens, and took a one week cruise from Athens to Venice. They vis­ited a cousin’s daugh­ter and hus­band who now live in Florence and met their new­born son lit­tle Luigi! The group planned their own itin­er­ary and kept very busy with the in­cred­i­ble sights and his­tory, with ideal weather for Un­em­ployed Work­ers Need Jobs and Eco­nomic Growth

Jobs and eco­nomic growth are the most im­por­tant files upon which the cur­rent fed­eral Lib­er­als are fail­ing mis­er­ably – and it’s get­ting worse. When a gov­ern­ment has a firm goalo­ri­ented eco­nomic pol­icy that serves all sec­tors of the econ­omy, Cana­di­ans have jobs and spend­ing power. In turn, tax rev­enues are gen­er­ated for the gov­ern­ment and many other things be­come more eas­ily achiev­able, every­thing from the pro­vi­sion of new or more fed­eral pro­grams and ser­vices, to in­vest­ments, to lower taxes.

The Prime Min­is­ter was elected on a prom­ise to cre­ate jobs and grow the econ­omy by only bor­row­ing $10 bil­lion a year and cap­ping the an­nual fed­eral bud­getary deficit at $10 bil­lion. He broke that prom­ise and in­stead is bor­row­ing as much as three times more, $30 bil­lion. Now, ac­cord­ing to econ­o­mists it is $46.5 bil­lion that has been bor­rowed.

The Prime Min­is­ter’s plan is not work­ing. The econ­omy is not growing and reg­u­lar fam­i­lies across the coun­try – in­clud­ing right here in Bat­tle River-Crow­foot - are los­ing in­come and they are los­ing jobs. Sim­ply bor­row­ing more and more money is ac­tu­ally not cre­at­ing jobs.

This week in Par­lia­ment, the fo­cus was on the fail­ure of the cur­rent gov­ern­ment to suc­cess­fully man­age the soft­wood lum­ber agree­ment with the United States. Over 95 per­cent of Canada’s soft­wood lum­ber is ex­ported to the U.S. and 400,000 jobs are de­pen­dent on that in­dus­try.

Ad­mit­tedly, it is a dif­fi­cult file and must be rene­go­ti­ated pe­ri­od­i­cally. Even as a new gov­ern­ment, our Con­ser­va­tive gov­ern­ment man­aged to re­new the all but 3 days.

Sev­eral area friends and rel­a­tives at­tended the fu­neral of for­mer res­i­dent Mrs. Elsie Epp, held in Cal­gary Oc­to­ber 21. Condolences from the com­mu­nity are ex­tended to her fam­ily.

Re­porters for the month of Novem­ber will be Kris­ten Anderson and Wendy Kaiser. Com­ing Events: Oct. 28- Duck Lake Ham & Oys­ter sup­per 5:30 pm

Oct. 31- Hal­loween party 4 pm Nov. 5- Sil­ver and Gold Gala Nov. 8- Flu clinic 11-3 pm Nov. 9- Hall cleanup - 7 pm Nov. 12- Curl­ing clinic deal in 2006 be­cause we had to stop the 27% tar­iffs put on Cana­dian soft­wood lum­ber. It was hurt­ing many Cana­di­ans com­mu­ni­ties, firms, work­ers and fam­i­lies. Since the new Lib­eral gov­ern­ment came in, there was no men­tion of soft­wood lum­ber in the Trade Min­is­ter’s man­date and even to­day, no dis­cus­sions of any sig­nif­i­cance on the file are tak­ing place.

It is a mas­sive in­dus­try, yet the Lib­eral’s re­sponse to crit­ics about the file is not to worry be­cause the PM was in­vited to a din­ner with the U.S. Pres­i­dent and he was able to take his fam­ily there, and we had the Pres­i­dent back here and he spoke in Par­lia­ment and we have never seen this be­fore. Well, if that is what Cana­di­ans are to take some so­lace in, given how the United States ne­go­ti­ates, we are in trou­ble.

Cana­di­ans know that when they bor­row money it has to be paid back, but the Prime Min­is­ter’s plan is to pay it back with higher taxes. The Lib­er­als have al­ready hiked taxes on small busi­nesses; can­celled the tax cred­its for reg­u­lar fam­i­lies. Com­ing next is a pay­roll tax hike and a Na­tional Car­bon tax hike; and, they are now con­sid­er­ing a tax on watch­ing Net­flix – op­po­site to what they said in the elec­tion cam­paign. Th­ese taxes will hit ev­ery­one.

We have nat­u­ral re­sources, gas and oil, which are in trou­ble; the soft­wood lum­ber file, which it seems has had noth­ing hap­pen­ing in the last year; and our econ­omy, which, even with all the spend­ing the gov­ern­ment is do­ing, is not growing. Noth­ing the Lib­er­als are do­ing seems to be work­ing for av­er­age Cana­di­ans.
