Brampton’s Tax Pit 2013

Say No to Brampton’s growing Tax Pit

Say Yes to your own life! 

Dear Neighbor,

Brampton council promises mere reallocation of your tax money for fortressing downtown. City council claims, “[An expanded city hall] will be funded by the reallocation of tax…beginning 2014…” A growing club of bureaucrats do more than reallocate taxes. Tax increases will emerge in various forms and in greater degrees. The city of Brampton means to take much, much more! Let us stop for a moment and look where we are now. Past behavior is indicative of future behavior.

Government status Brampton Taxpayer status Non-productive entity Productive entity Paychecks: $100,000+ government salary club growing Paychecks: Virtual fixed income Highest paid mayor in Canada Programmed Pay increases below inflation Wasted tax on fluffed schemes. Growing debt Little or no money left over to save. Growing debt

Tax revolts are good, justified, angry, but limited reactions. Lobbying is special interest favoring, i.e., environmental propagation or corporate “partnering.” All favoring has diverted credit and free market growth by wasting independent energy. Politicians and bureaucrats have killed economic progress through redistributive, forceful strategy and modern guild building. We need to reverse this mess. The need today is to regain freedom and break Ontario’s political rooted recession.

We are building the Brampton of the future right now” say’s city manager, Deborah Dubenofsky.

Far from the truth! “Creating jobs” is a result of private investing, not wasteful redistributive programs. “Strategic investing” is a result of your savings and productive skills to do your very best for yourself and your employees, not taxation and political favoring.

The proof of what is right and good is gauged by honest earnings but your standard of living has been diminishing by burdening taxes and levies, restrictive rules, price controls, etc. This irresponsible governing has caused the growing divide between private producers and public weight. A full ⅔ of Brampton’s cost is bureaucratic labour costs, not counting other government levels.

I am reaching out to you to help build our local constituency so that we all have the ability to elect someone who will say “no” to Brampton’s tax pit, and “yes” to letting you keep more of what you have earned.

A free market revolution is required. Nothing less will do”

Meet: Sunday April 14, 2013. Time: 3 PM. Where: 9 Queen St E (Coffee Culture) Downtown

The Freedom Party of Ontario has solutions to the many problems we are facing in the areas of intervention and taxation. Whether you are a voter or a non-voter, what government does still affects you. Take a few moments to look at the Freedom Party of Ontario’s webpage to see how government can work for you, instead of making life more difficult for you.

Let us spread Freedom Party’s message of personal prosperity, and responsible and accountable government.


A short look back

Do you remember Sandra Pupatello, Ex- Minister of economic development? Do you remember she was in Brampton at a Business breakfast with Susan Fennell and pull – peddling businessmen? She wanted government to be like a “lion” towards business. She meant more intervening. Here is a response I wrote and gave to a few associates. Happily I can say Brampton did vote out the majority of councilors and also replaced the Mayor.

Integration Series 2013

Sandra Pupatello, ex Minister of economic development and trade with the McGuinty government was clubbing in Brampton with Susan Fennell and other sunshine club members at a recent, “Business Breakfast.” Sunshine club members are public officials who pocket over $100,000 a year of tax-payers money. Sandra Pupatello wanted her audience to be, “like a lion on what we can do for business.”

In other words, she wanted club growth, more businessmen to curry special political favor. What these sunshine clubbers do in Brampton are strategic failures! Far from “helping” Brampton’s business, economic chaos results.

Brampton City Center mall for example can now remain open on Family Day, to the monopoly of other small business which cannot. Administrative cost now props up this chaos that ensues from an unholy business exemption/favoritism.

Now connect this type of activity to Brampton’s city hall expansion and you will understand that radical political intrusion is planned for our future! Favoritism will greatly increase. This is precisely what Brampton’s strategic vision represents; an uncontrolled beast in motion that will rip and devour the best of Brampton’s future.

Already, today’s massive regulatory regime with tax administered weight represents more than mere removal of dollar for dollar from our pay checks towards, “Strategic planning” but represents further destruction of our personal savings, wholesale destruction of our property rights, destruction of our careers and knowing destruction of our personal strategies.

This uncaring income drain and disintegration is largely unseen, but it is felt because it is personal initiative and development that won’t happen due to taxation and diversion of our productive efforts. Personal and individual dreams are suffocated as independence is destroyed.

Unless we as individuals exercise our sovereignty, as I’ve said, worse is coming.

The only way your life will count in Brampton politics is if you have more choice and more options, not less to make your life work well. We as individuals need more control of our money and savings not less. We need sovereignty not massive legislation.

You have been making good choices all your life by earning and saving what you’ve earned but a time must come to say no those who take it away. Almost 50% of your working life is taken by politicians who convince you, election after election to give and sacrifice, “just a little more.”

At 51% tax where is your sovereignty? With a regulatory regime that erodes your livelihood, what is there left to do without some kind of license, monitor and permission?

We deserve much better than this and so do our children.

We can say no to Brampton council’s impositions, we can organize to vote these spenders out of office. We can seek better representatives who will free up our economy and the recessionary mess politicians have created and won’t let go.

We can work towards repealing BIA,s and here, we can dismantle Brampton’s Downtown Development Corporation.

It is possible and crucial we work towards freedom in our lives.

I am The Young

Brampton in another election mode
What’s your share? $17,000 per
of this cumbersome debt load
baby boomers will just defer.

And make you pay, young man,
For sins and wanton over-load
tax-less the young woman ban,
All will pay with no out road.

Ay! Such heartless, vile servitude
Should mark no man, but goad
And ride a mean, equal rectitude,
And vote out the old, blind toads.

Brampton energy is expensive

I wrote this letter just a few moments ago to WindConcernsOntario. The province is costing you billions subsidizing inefficient energy. The cost of contracts to builders of damaging wind turbines, the huge public service club organizers who profit as well as an expensive bureaucracy that needs high electricity billing to keep their work programs.


Dear Wind Concerns Ontario, Jane Wilson,

I just saw, “Downwind” on Sun TV. I agree with the show very much and wish to expand the influence of better, more rational environmental ideas to counter the disrespect the province has for its citizens.

Our current direction is insane, costly, and an immoral direction towards carbon tax, subsidized turbines and worse is coming.

The province is in a condition worse than broke, we are in debt, yet the environmental agenda, via the Wynn government is planned for a major initiative this spring and summer. This means the Liberal party is planning it as you read this.

I am sure the blue belt (Conservatives) understand the asinine direction environmentalism is pointed, but the Metro areas, including where I live is solid Liberal and do not question what the government does. I believe their minds can be changed once the truth is known.

I am taking the initiative to write you and anyone who might be interested in continuing this fight against the lies that will do worse damage if those who know better keep silent.

As a member of the Freedom Party of Ontario, we have long platformed against the, “Green Energy Act” including many other catastrophic energy plans that have undermined this province, corrupted politics, and destroyed human lives.

Do you have anyone in or near Brampton I can talk with or discuss how to further promote better ideas concerning expanding better, more rational ideas concerning environmentalism? Thank you.
