A closer look at the proposed retail discount tax

The discount tax for retail employees seems to have become a non issue across government parties. However, Canada Revenue Agency has issued guidelines for businesses to follow regarding merchandise taxes.

Follow your dreams. You can be anything if you try. Reach for the stars. All of these overused cliché statements were plaguing my Pinterest. At 31 years old, you have to keep scrolling and think: “If I had my time back.” Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda right? Then one day I got motivated. I watched my group of lady friends make changes in the world that were significant. I decided my fate was in my own hands. Pinterest was right. Why not try an online magazine? I am a journalist and I have been freelancing for over 8 years. It’s been a hard gig but I have stuck with it. I have not remained consistent but I was all like, ‘I want…

The price is Wright…and funny

The legend, the comedian, my new best friend. From a snow clearing fiasco to the stage of Yuk Yuk’s, Matt Wright is becoming a part of the Newfoundland language. Soon you’ll be buying shirts with a cartoon version of his face with his own quote on the back. In no time, people will be using his punch lines in cliché Newfoundland catch phrases, rather than “Whadda ya at?” Wright’s first album Vasectomy Baby is topping the charts in Canada, rubbing metaphorical shoulders with Weird Al Yankovic and that ain’t something to shake an ugly stick at. His celebrity status has grown in the last few months. Even though, he considers himself just a guy from Gander trying to make it…

Photo credit: Zach Bonnell There are Canadian immigrants who remember the first moment they landed in this country. The instant when their feet hit Canadian soil, an unbelievable sense of mystery being subdued by a release into the true North strong and free. For a certain generation, that moment happened at the Gander International Airport. A complete change solidified in the small building in the corner of a flat town. Extreme emotional transformations took place consistently at that airport:  everyday goodbyes and hellos, historical events, September 11- it has pinpoints within history that are fundamental to the development of this province. “Gander International Airport is an enduring symbol of the province’s aviation pedigree. Gander served as an air bridge between…

 Photo Credit: Mike O’Reilly (www.mikeophoto.ca) A little over a month ago, man-of-many-hats, Kenneth J. Harvey released a music video for “Happiness Kills”, a track by St. John’s alt-rock act Young Maniacs. I had the chance to talk to both Senor Harvey himself, as well as Aaron Hickey and James Greene of Young Manics about their current endeavours and the film-making process. Young Manics are a Placentian-St.John’s-Ukrainian band comprised of Aaron Hickey, James Green, Peter Collins, and Andrew Small, and new member, Iryna Borshchova. The initial core of four began playing in 2008 and finally released their first album, Solidarity Songs in 2013, which resulted in a Music NL nomination for Alternative Group of the Year. Hickey said that he “had…

Dane Gill dabbles in all forms of creative activity. He slaps the bass with his left hand; write short stories with his right hand. He draws, he sings, records his own work. He takes pictures of family and friends. He reads books like a mofo. Bookshelves line his walls from floor to ceiling that range from history to art to Nabokov to Calvin and Hobbes. He is also a dad and a postman. He performed at the ECMAs, he wore all black in high school. He has a Masters in English and he paints. Check him out. Some of Gill’s pieces can be found at Picture Frame and Gallery in Town Square Gander. Contact Tint of Ink if you are…
