CAMP PAY HIKE  RF/TRIB

Campbellton council has voted to give itself a raise, according to the
Tribune.

That’s because the mayor and councillors will have to pay tax to the Trudeau
Liberals on a portion of their income.

So, council voted in favour of a pay hike that will allow them to continue to
take home what they were taking home prior to the federal Grits decision to
tax members of councils on portions of income earned while serving their
communities.

jury trial on another. She will be back in court February 4th…and remains

year old suspect at his own hand after a chase to Kent County.

MISUSE OF FUNDS  RF/WIRE

After taking some heat from NDP MP Charlie Angus, the Trudeau Liberals will
reimburse 500-dollars to the House of Commons for using Trudeau’s
parliamentary office to record a video pitch for donations to the party.

Angus pointed out that by doing so, that violated Commons rules, which
prohibit the use of parliamentary resources for partisan purposes.

The Grits are also offering to reimburse people who made donations linked to
the video.
