Good thing I just submitted by Pre Budget Consultation ideas including 1. Having Department of Advanced Education and Skills handle Income Support and Board and Lodging Supplement. 2. Eliminate the "Poll Tax" as it discriminates against single parents, seniors, students, working poor, and disabled persons as they typically can't afford to own property and are thus subjected to this dreadful "Poor Tax". 3. Provide funding to Special Olympics Newfoundland and Labrador to cover hosting costs for the 2016 Special Olympics Canada Winter Games in Corner Brook. 4. Keep the HST at current rates. 5. Impose tighter dairy price regulation and encourage competition.

What a bunch of bull! Their budget was drawn up over two months ago. Now they are trying to be inclusive all of a sudden. We won't be fooled anymore, so pack your bags Jerome

I agree 100% this is bull. This government is anything but inclusive. Do they really think people don't see through them? Really??
