Important stuff from the past .....
An open letter to Premier Wynne.
Sept. 14, 2013
I have been a long-time
supporter of you. I certainly admired the fact that while you were a MP
campaigning, you came to my door twice. Two times more than any of your
competitors. I'm sure you'll agree with me that grassroots and walking the beat
goes a long way.The reason I am writing to you,
is I have a concern for the general health of Ontarians and what we could
possibly do to improve it. I coach the North Toronto Masterís Swim Club (age
range from 22 to 73) in the City of Toronto. I have been doing this for over 20
years. I know without a doubt, that this club has contributed to a healthy and
wellness lifestyle for its members. I'm sure you would agree that in
today's aging population, a healthy adult lifestyle places less stress on our
Health Care System. My question to you: Why do we
have HST Tax on health and fitness? It seems to me that this is so
counterproductive. We want Ontarians to be healthier, the benefits are enormous
both personally and society wise. But yet the government is going to tax them
for leading a healthy lifestyle. I understand that fitness comes
in many forms: Do we need HST Tax on walking/running shoes, bikes, and from my
perspective, health/swim club memberships. This 13% fee on top of a membership
cost should not be a health tax!! The government should be
supportive of those individuals seeking a healthy lifestyle. Premier Wynne, what
can we do to eliminate HST and further promote health and wellness?I eagerly await your response
and would be more than happy to team up with you on this issue.

And without further adieu, here
is the most talked about relay race in NT's History - But please be advised

Speedo LRZ Racer as the fastest suit in the world. The suit worn by our man,
helped him smash his best 50 breast time by 2 seconds.......
