New changes affect small

MIRIAM OSTERMANN

A couple of hundred people flocked to a town
hall meeting Sept. 23, where Conservative Mem-

Senior power! Shadow Finance Minister Pierre Poilievre ad-
dressed the proposed federal government tax
changes – controversial proposals described as
closing unfair loopholes by Liberals, yet seen as a
Page 16 cash grab by Conservatives.
The new tax changes would illustrate the larg-
est reform of the Canadian tax system in 40 years,
with a 75-day consultation period, and result in a
possible monetary gain of several billion dollars
annually. Yet critics argue the tactic is an attack
on small businesses, those with less than 100 em-
ployees.

ers and doctors had the opportunity to speak with
Poilievre on the effects the changes pose on their

plans.
“This illustrates yet another example of gov-
ernment attempting to take more of what other
people have earned and put it in the position and
control of politicians who have not earned it,” said
Poilievre.
“They’re attempting to ram it through in 75 days
of so-called consultation. A consultation when

It’s the time of the year to start thinking about flu
shots again. However, do more than think about it.
Get it done this year. Remember all the truths about
flu shots: you can’t get the flu from it; side effects
are very rare; getting the flu is not like getting a cold.
It’s much more serious and thousands die each year
from the virus. By the way, pregnant ladies should
get the flu shot too.
Do you remember that old TV show, The Bionic
Man? He had an eye that could do many marvellous
things. Well, a bionic eye is actively being research
and has recently been implanted into a blind man
with age-related macular degeneration. It allowed
the man to read large letters and see the edge
of the sidewalk while walking. It’s early times
for the bionic eye but in the future, it will be as
commonplace as transplanting a kidney.
Measles is a very contagious disease. In Canada
in 1998 we thought it was gone from the country
but recently more measles cases have turned up.
In adults, the virus is rather benign but in children
it can be deadly because it can lead to pneumonia,
inflammation of the brain and hearing loss. Be sure
your child is immunized against measles.
Cannabidiol, the non-intoxicating ingredient in
marijuana was scientifically tested in a study on
children with Dravet’s Syndrome, a form of epilepsy.
It was given in a standardized liquid form and found
to reduce the seizures significantly in the group
getting the drug versus those in the placebo group.
This looks promising for those with epilepsy and
hopefully standardized forms of the drug will be
available soon.

Sauve was sitting pretty heading into
the penultimate event, the Husafell
Stones. He finished third in the 100-me-
tre Yoke walk with a time of 30.48 sec-
onds, tied for first in the 130-pound axle
press with 11 reps and placed second in
the car deadlift with 10 reps.

It wasn’t so much the straw that broke
his back, but a 310-pound pyramid rock.
“As I was warming up for the event,
my back locked up on me and I couldn’t
pick it up,” said Sauve. “I think I moved
it one foot, whereas I’ll typically carry it
over 250 feet.”
Last year, when he captured the na-
tional title, Sauve spent the better part
of two months preparing for the event.

CANDIDATES
This year, Sauve jammed in six differ-
ent strongman events into the past two
months, along with travelling halfway
around the globe, as he prepared to de-
fend his title.
“I was just too burnt out,” he said.
Sauve landed back at Calgary Interna-

again for New Brunswick. The local lift-

Attending the international event as
an invite and as one of two Canadians,
Sauve was matched against 20 other lift-
ers from Australia, England, Poland and
New Zealand, among other countries.
Sauve was lucky just to make it to the
first event of the two-day competition.
