Ontario Home Tax Gives $150 Million to Gov
Apr 21, 2017 — Mark Smyth
The new Ontario home tax for offshore buyers will raise about $150 million for the first 2,000 homes sold. That guesstimate will be mostly one bedroom condos selling for $250,000 and another huge percentage of those 2,000 homes selling in the middle half million dollar range.
That’s at a tax rate of 15 percent based on the selling price. For a two bedroom condo selling for $500,000 that rate will give $75,000 to the government of Ontario and Canada.
U.S. Air Force Using Old A10 Warthog & U2 in Korea
Apr 4, 2017 — Mark Smyth
I watched the late rebroadcast version of NBC news Monday night with host Lester Holt at an American air base in South Korea.
Oldies are goodies as both the A10 Warthog and the cold war spy U2 plane are both used there and Holt gave us a close report of both.
Great footage from inside the chase car that follows all the takeoffs of the U2 extreme high altitude jet. It has been flying since the 1950s and flies at an altitude of 100,000 feet over North Korea so that the midget dictator cannot shoot it down. That 100,000 feet is 19 miles high.
CBC Canadian Media Fails to Know ABC Bias

Polls favorable to Donald Trump may be overestimating his support, state polls suggest
One point that this article fails to mention is that the LA Times poll takes a cross-country read every day from 3,000 people, making it more accurate than most other national polls, that are only one-third the sample size.
And that same LA Times poll mentions that Clinton is ahead by one point, but failed to be honest by reporting a lead for just one day for Clinton in over 8 weeks in the exact same poll.

For 15 years the ANC, a commie based political party, that has ruled in South Africa for 15 years is running into some very stiff opposition in the upcoming election.

For those who were not aware of the joint statement from the 76TH ANNUAL U.S. CONFERENCE OF MAYORS in Miami this past week, to boycott Canadian gasoline made from oil sands heavy crude, pay very close attention.
