Where is the fairness?

Here we go again! The NS Government just gave POOR Irving Oil a $260 million forgiveable loan today to build ships they will make billions on constructing!!! They gave POOR Imperial Oil a $17 million property/assessment tax break earlier this year. The "Little Guy" gets it straight on the "chin" again! This is MADNESS! The Provincial Gov't also just downloaded $100m of non-budgeted costs to HRM. Think the small business communities property taxes are not going up to make up this shortfall? Think again! I hope everyone remembers these small business blood sucking politicans when the next election rolls around!! We have small business owners in our area (Fall River and surrounding area) with 377% property tax increases (in the past 1 yr) and no help or relief provided to them! But, the politicians are giving hundreds of millions to Irving and millions in tax relief to Imperial Oil. Something wrong here!! Where is the fairness?? —MF
