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. 

Though the Liberal party has stated this tax will not harm retail employees, it’s a real slippery slope to dance around.

I’ve attempted some weird moves on George Street over the years from breaking out the robot to leading the entire dancefloor into an impromptu “Macarena” dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” but one move I have never attempted (to my recollection) on the street or in one of its twenty-four bars is a downward dog. That all changed this past Saturday when I took my mat and joined some fellow yogis for Yoga on George. The event, which coincided with the 33rd annual George Street Festival was a complimentary yoga class hosted by lululemon St. John’s who celebrated the grand opening of their store last year with a community yoga class right in the middle of George. Before the…

“Summer + Local Beer + Local Pizza + Quidi Vidi,” boasted the ticket page for the pizza pairing event put off by Quidi Vidi Brewery and Olio which sounds like a winning combination to me.  St. John’s has been blessed with what has so far been an awesome summer and hopefully, you are getting out there and enjoying the weather. I couldn’t think of a better way to take a break from my summer session courses at MUN than to visit Quidi Vidi for some beer and pizza on July 19th.

Ramen with a Taste of Newfoundland

Ramen

Adam Gollop and Jasmine Kean took on a culinary storm when the opened Bad Bones Ramen on Water Street this past June. Shockingly the downtown food market had not come across a ramen selection to date and Bad Bones was the first to introduce the idea to Newfoundland palates. The restaurant has a wide variety of ramen choices and Jasmine and Adam are damn good at what they do. You can see people lined up outside the restaurant waiting to be served. A few times the restaurant has had to close their doors because they ran out of food. The response has been more than they ever expected. “We’re elated and a little in awe. We are aiming to please but…

It is fitting that I follow up a post about my own birthday with a one about Canada’s as the True North strong and free celebrates the day after KRISmas (which has always served me well once I became 19 and got acquainted with Corona). July 1st, Canada Day means a lot of things to me; first, it is the day after my birthday, which as I mentioned is a time to recover from the night before, and is the suspected date of birth of my beloved deceased dog Kyser. July 1st is also a day to remember soldiers from Newfoundland on what we call Memorial Day and I always remember laying a wreath for my great grandfather, even though…

The KRIS Guide To Turning 30 (feat JAY Z & Britney Spears)

My birthday, which I have blasphemously referred to as KRISmas is fast approaching. This is going to be a big one; KRISmas XXX (that’s thirty in Roman numerals for those of you who didn’t grow up watching WrestleMania and in case you have a dirty mind…). The thought of thirty has been looming for a while now. I have had a few friends who joined that club already and it has been in the back of my mind for the last few years; in fact, I’ve been struggling with my age since I hit a quarter century. My friend, the blossoming YouTube star that I wrote about earlier this year turned thirty in January and shared thirty things she learned…
