MP Report by Jay Hill, M.P.“A Finance Minister We Can All Be Proud Of”- Advertisement – This week, my colleague, Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, once again reminded me of critical areas where our Conservative Government has advanced the fundamental principles that compelled me to enter politics. On behalf of all Canadians … thanks Jim! And I will never forget that this is the only finance minister who sat down with me, listened to the plight of the residents of Mackenzie, BC, then acted to restore the Northern Living Allowance to that community. These successes did not happen by accident. Minister Flaherty has led the drive to reduce the overall tax burden on Canadians to its lowest level in nearly 50 years.Advertisement The Wall Street Journal praised Canada for “leading the pushback against the tax-and-spend agenda of some of the more powerful members of the G-20 … Tax cuts, limits on stimulus spending, a strong currency and freer trade. Who says Canada is boring?” The International Monetary Fund and the OECD both predict Canada will enjoy the greatest growth of all G7 nations in 2010. Canadian Banks were ranked the soundest in the World for the third year in a row by the World Economic Forum. The Los Angeles Times: “Americans have almost never looked to Canada as a role model … but … on such critical issues as the deficit, unemployment … and prospering in the global economy, Canada seems to be out performing the United States. And in doing so, it is offering examples of successful strategies that Americans might consider.”Advertisement He deserved being named “Finance Minister of the Year” by Euromoney magazine last year. He has deserved all of the international accolades:Advertisement He confirmed that stimulus funding under our Economic Action Plan must wind up as planned in 2011. Funds essential to Canada’s recovery throughout the global economic crisis, successful in creating 430,000 new jobs. Yet funds that are TIME-LIMITED. He firmly opposed a new global bank tax that would penalize Canada’s financial institutions, which remained strong while many of the world’s banks failed. Standard & Poors, the world’s premier credit-rating agency: “Of the other G7 countries … Canada is posting the best fiscal results. Canada also best weathered the financial crisis … [and] is now well positioned to continue to outperform.” Canadian Federation of Independent Business says business confidence among Canada’s small and medium-sized businesses is at its highest level in five years. The same economic principles that ensured Canada had the best fiscal position in the G7 going into the global recession with the lowest debt-to-GDP ratio, will also secure Canada’s prosperity into the future. And while our government is a team, Jim Flaherty’s tenacity and leadership deserve much of the credit. He instituted new credit and debit card rules to better protect Canadian consumers and is moving to protect Canadians savings and retirement plans with a new Canadian Securities regulator. The World Economic Forum: “At a time when many countries are struggling with weak financial institutions and macroeconomic stability, these are areas where Canada remains a world leader, retaining its number 1 rating for the perceived strength of its banks for the third year in a row.” KPMG, the global accounting firm, ranked Canada the most competitive industrialized country for job creators.

The facility on Howard Avenue doesn’t store natural gas anymore, according to gas company spokesman Peter Hidalgo. He said residual oil is pumped out of the former storage field by third-party contractors. As part of the removal of oil, he said a thermal oxidizer burns off the residual gas. “While we’re pulling out the oil, there is excess gas. So as to reduce gas, there is a device that burns off the residual gas,” Hidalgo said, adding that the oxidizer is used as a pollution control. He said it appears one of the trucks malfunctioned. Oil and other liquids being collected by the truck entered the oxidizer which caught fire, Hidalgo said. He said the blasts heard were the caps popping off the oxidizer which is owned by the gas company. MONTEBELLO – A device that burns off residual gas from a former Southern California Gas Co. storage field was damaged when it caught fire Monday. No one was injured in the fire reported at 2:22 p.m., said Montebello Police Lt. Govan Yee. Yee said small explosions were heard. Residents were told to stay inside their homes but no one was evacuated, he added. He said the blaze was extinguished at 4 p.m. – Ruby Gonzales165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter. Something went wrong.

After Eden Hazard admitted that he was keen to exit Chelsea for Real Madrid, there has been much speculation about the fate of the manager, Maurizio Sarri too. Italian Sarri joined Chelsea in July 2018 but has endured a difficult first season and many sources are suggesting all is not well at the club. The question is, will Sarri still be at the helm when the new season rolls around?A season of two halvesSarri has been under fire for more or less the whole season at Chelsea. He started off on the back foot after losing the Charity Shield to Man City but fans would have forgiven this if the Premier League results had been good. Unfortunately Chelsea started to leak points, putting the team under pressure from the start. Before Christmas Chelsea had dropped points against West Ham, Wolves and Leicester as well as rivals Man U and Spurs. After Christmas the fortunes of Chelsea slowly began to improve following a watershed 2-0 victory over Spurs in February. There were fewer losses and draws although the results were still a long way from perfect, losing to Everton and drawing against Wolves.The good news for Chelsea was that the teams around them in the Premier League were also missing opportunities to claim three points for every match. This enabled Chelsea to claw back the gap, finishing the season in third position. There was better yet to come with the Europa League Cup Final where Chelsea hammered fellow Premier League team Arsenal by 4-1. A future in doubtDespite bringing major silverware to Stamford Bridge, bookies are still only offering even odds on the likelihood that Sarri will stay and if that’s a bet you want to take, we’d recommend you do only do it with a free bet given the latest news headlines. Although Chelsea fans were delighted by the win, and for automatically qualifying for next year’s Champions League, many feel dissatisfied with Sarri’s style of play. The Italian himself has expressed a desire to return to his home country, describing the urge as “strong” and admitting to a “difficult” year in the Premier League. Chelsea are apparently willing to allow him to leave if Juventus want him as their new boss. The hot seat in Turin is currently vacant following Allegri’s departure and the club are keen for Sarri to make the switch. However, although many signs are pointing towards a return to Serie A for Sarri, there’s still a good chance he may remain in the Premier League. He hasn’t really clicked with the fans and although the season was a success, Sarri may still feel as if he has a point to prove. From a more practical perspective, there are still two more years remaining on Sarri’s contract. If Juve want him, they’ll need to stump up £5million to Chelsea and some sources predict this will be just too much. Sarri himself seems very much in two minds about where he wants to be. Despite pining for Italy he also says he is “very happy” in the Premier League and will be talking to Chelsea bosses soon about his future. Will Roman Abramovich crack his famous whip and move Sarri on – or will the trophy be enough to quell any restlessness, at least for another season? With all betting split right now on the likely outcome, the only thing for sure right now is that fans will be watching developments at the Bridge very closely.
