If Maud Lewis were alive today, she would be charged commercial property taxes. Nice paintings, Maud, but that's a business you are running from your house. What's that you say? You only make $10 per painting? So sorry, that's the way our tax legislation is written.

Today in Nova Scotia, anyone who uses a room in their house to run a business is subject to being taxed commercially. There is zero connection to selling retail. Zero. So, when I pay an additional $650 a year in property taxes because I use a room in my house to make hats, it hurts. Paying this bill means not paying for something else. When the town charges me commercial sewer rates on a room in my house that doesn't have any water, it hurts. How are these policies supportive of the arts? How can any province claim to support the arts when it doesn't support its artists?

“The Liberal government has become the instrument of certain very powerful corporations that are in the midst of creating an entity that corresponds to their interests. And when I say their interests, it’s their financial interests first and foremost,” he later told reporters. “If this isn’t a major conflict of interest, I don’t know what else you could call it.” - Alexandre Boulerice #Canada #cdnpoli #TrudeauGovernment

The leader of the Nova Scotia #NDP announced a four-point plan for education Saturday that would cost at least $16 million a year. #GaryBurrill promised a variable cap on classroom size for all grades, depending on the composition of the class, at an estimated cost of $9.3 million annually. Burrill also wants to unleash a "small army" of educational specialists to help students at an annual estimated cost of $7 million. That plan would include hiring additional teachers, school counselors, speech pathologists, school psychologists and other educational specialists. #NovaScotia #NSEducation #nselxn17 #nspoli

Mona Parsons was imprisoned by the Nazis during World War II, because of her efforts to help allied airmen who were shot down of occupied Netherlands," said Andria Hill-Lehr at Friday's dedication. "She was willing to put everything on the line including her life for what she believed in." Since the release of Hill-Lehr's books, Parsons's story has been turned into a documentary and even a Canadian Heritage Minute. #MonaParsons #Wolfville #NovaScotia #AnnapolisValley #Canada
