MacKay may have broken the rules with use of government aircraft

in Daily Indygestion/Email Indygestion/Journalism by

Mary Dawson, the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner of Canada, told a House of Commons committee Thursday some rules may have been broken during MacKay’s 2010 summer vacation, when he was picked up from a Newfoundland fishing lodge by a Cormorant search-and-rescue helicopter. A copy of the personal cheque used to pay for his time at the lodge will be sent to the commissioner’s office, MacKay said following question period, which was highlighted by calls to clip the defence minister’s wings. “I’ve taken that step to provide her that information. If she has any questions, she can contact me,” he said. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, until now silent about the controversy, attempted to deflect criticism of MacKay by saying that he has used mostly for soldier repatriation ceremonies. He said Challenger Jet use is down 30% from what the Liberal government before him used. Source: Winnipeg Free Press

Should crime be an election issue?

in Featured/Maps/NL Election 2011/Through the Fog by

As the Federal Conservatives are pushing through new “tough-on-crime” legislation at the national level, many people are left wondering “why?” The crime rate in Canada, afterall, is the lowest it has ever been in almost 30 years – and that rate has been in general decline during that same time. But here in Newfoundland and Labrador – on the northeast Avalon especially – crime is becoming more and more of a problem. While Stats Canada reports that nationally crime decreased by 4% in 2009, the total crime rate in St. John’s actually saw an increase of 4% – and our capital city now has the seventh-highest metropolitan crime index. With money comes prosperity, but it also brings nastier elements of society – that quite frankly us Newfoundlanders aren’t used to. Disappearing are the days where we can leave our car idling in front of the convenience store, leave our front…

Chretien predicts Liberal-NDP merger… soon or not at all

in Daily Indygestion/Email Indygestion/Journalism by

“It will be done one day. It will come very quickly or not happen. Look at the way that Harper did that — Harper had MacKay there. [He] made a solemn promise in writing that never he will talk merging with the Reform [Party]. He’s now the minister of defence. Things happen and they happen, sometimes, at moments unexpected.” In 2003, the Progressive Conservatives, led by Peter MacKay, merged with now-Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Canadian Alliance. The Reform Party was the forerunner to the Canadian Alliance. Liberal and NDP officials have denied rumours that Chrétien and NDP stalwarts Ed Broadbent and Roy Romanow chatted occasionally about the possibility of the two parties merging. Source: CBC

Harper eliminating political subsidies

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

It appears that the elimination of subsidies for political parties will be a key plank of the new Conservative budget in June. The $2-a-vote annual subsidy was originally created by former Prime Minister Jean Chretien’s Liberal government in 2004 after new donor limits were placed on individuals and corporations – a move designed to steer Canada away from the American-style political financing. In the time since 2004 the Conservative party has proven to be far more efficient in raising its own funds than the other political parties, and does not depend on it like the Liberals, NDP, and Bloc have. The subsidy’s detractors say that public money should not be handed over to political parties, but have also been accused of taking advantage of a Conservative strength to severely injure all of the other parties in the House of Commons. After winning the 2008 election, Harper tried to eliminate the…

Loan guarantee for Lower Churchill could be coming soon

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

A federal loan guarantee to develop the Lower Churchill hydroelectric project could be just around the corner. Premier Kathy Dunderdale says that Prime Minister Stephen Harper has proposed conditions for the loan guarantee, all of which will be met. Dunderdale notes that Harper’s questions about Muskrat Falls focused mostly on the economics of the project. She expects a loan guarantee to be achieved soon. Harper arrives in the province tomorrow, at which time Dunderdale hopes to meet with him to discuss Muskrat Falls. Meanwhile, the provincial Liberals accuse the government of underestimating the construction costs of developing the project — and overestimating the demand for electricity. Leader Yvonne Jones scoffs at government estimates which suggest that power use will rise by about a third over the next six years.
