Not doing your homework Paul?

Paul Arbour, federal CMM NDP candidate, either likes to deliberately mislead the public, or simply can't be bothered to read beyond the headlines.

How else can you explain this blog posting. He accuses the Green Party of Canada (GPC) of wanting to raise your taxes. Which on the surface looks like what the GPC was trying to do. Why only on the surface? Because the GPC plan calls for imposing a carbon tax and taking that revenue and lowering personal income tax and payroll taxes. The net result is revenue neutral. Elizabeth May has a great blog posting about the proposal.

Paul doesn't even allude to this possibility in his posting. I hope he puts more research into other things he does or having him as our MP would be very similar to having Gordon O'Connor. Mr. O'Connor seemed to be apologizing for misleading parliament every other day.

Walk Score

Stumbled onto an interesting mash-up site.

You put in your address and it gives you a score out of 100 indicating how walkable your neigbourhood is.

I live in a rural area and got a very low score of 8 out of 100.
