Fracking linked to Alberta earthquakes, study indicates  { * – Carmen Langer had just left his bed to grab a drink of water when he felt his house northeast of Peace River, Alta., begin to shake. – “At first I thought I wasn’t feeling very good that day… and it was just my blood sugar, but no, it shook pretty good,” Langer said about the Nov. 2 incident.

– Moments after the shaking stopped, his neighbours were calling, asking if he had felt what they just felt. – “After a few minutes, I realized it was an earthquake,” Langer said. – There was a small earthquake on Nov. 2 in Peace River, just northeast of Peace River. The recently published study involving Alberta researcher Jeff Gu indicates fracking may trigger earthquakes in the province.  – Natural Resources Canada (NRC) registered a small, 3.0-magnitude earthquake that was “lightly felt” from Three Creeks to St. Isidor in northern Alberta at 11:14 p.m. MT. NRC said on its website there were no reports of damage, and that “none would be expected.” – Jeff Gu, a seismologist at the University of Alberta, said the earthquake could have been caused by shifting rock formations in the region — but added there could be another possible explanation. – “Certainly that region is not immune to earthquake faulting, but I would say having actual earthquakes in that area is relatively recent, relatively new,” he said. – Gu is one of three authors of a recently published study in the Journal of Geophysical Research, a peer-reviewed publication that looked at four years of earthquake data around Rocky Mountain House. The study concludes that waste-water injection into the ground is highly correlated with spikes in earthquake activity in the area. – It is the first study of its kind conducted in Canada that links industrial activity to induced earthquakes. – “The conclusion was that the industrial activities could, in some cases, potentially trigger or facilitate earthquake occurrences,” Gu said. – Alberta earthquakes increasing – Since 1985, fewer than 15 earthquakes above a 3.0 magnitude have been recorded anywhere in Alberta, according to the Alberta Geological Survey’s website. There has been an increase in earthquake activity since the 1960s, the organization says. – The Peace River earthquake is not the only one that has shaken the province in the past few months:

  • In October, a 2.7-magnitude quake was recorded about four kilometres southwest of Banff.
  • In August, a 4.3-magnitude earthquake was registered near Rocky Mountain House, causing about 500 customers in the area to lose power for several hours.

– Gu said the research into whether waste-water induction and fracking are related to earthquakes is still “really a work in progress.” –  “There has been more and more evidence, increasing evidence, in the last few years in particular — in Arkansas, in Texas and actually more recently here,” Gu said. – But he said there is nothing to fear right now. – “I’m not worried until we get a conclusive answer on whether these are caused by industry or not, whether they are naturally occurring,” Gu said. – Langer, however, is worried. – “With all the stuff that’s going on in my community, I’m feeling quite concerned about it,” he said. “We’re having all kinds of environmental problems in the community… Something has to give here.” – *  —djo—   }

– Cheryl Hay was surprised to open her email Saturday morning and find another message from Skillsoft, a company that offers government-funded online training courses. – She says it’s the third one since Thursday. Plus, she says, it contains the email addresses of more than 4,000 people. – “People are exposing their work locations and it’s a breach of privacy regarding the fact that they may not want their employers knowing they’re taking training or just the fact that they’re trying to do some training on their own without a whole bunch of other people knowing,” Hay said. – Skillsoft sent an email Thursday offering assistance to those who had signed up for its courses. The problem was it CCed everyone, which meant everyone’s email address was visible to everyone else. – On Friday, the company told CBC News the problem was fixed. – Chris Cummins, vice-president of inside sales for North America, says no more emails have been sent, however, some people are receiving the one sent out Thursday on delay. – “Certainly we are here and ready to answer any questions that anybody has. They can get in touch with us directly at the SkillsNB email address that we communicated out on Friday morning as well,” Cummins said. –  Cummins says several people got in touch with the company Saturday to say they had received emails. He says each case is being dealt with individually. – New Brunswick’s privacy commissioner is investigating. – *  —djo—   }

Franz Prokop, ex-B.C. councillor, loses $3.6M Lotto 6/49 lawsuit   { * – Former Maple Ridge, B.C., councillor Franz Prokop has lost a lawsuit that claimed his ex-partner’s son had stolen his winning $3.6-million lottery ticket. – Prokop’s lawyers told the court in New Westminster that he bought the Lotto 6/49 ticket while shopping in August 2007 with his common-law partner, Angelina Dushop, and that after the draw, she realized the ticket was a winner. – The Coquitlam realtor claimed Dushop’s son, Peter Dushop, had access to the couple’s home, took the ticket from Prokop’s desk and then claimed the ticket 11 months later. – Dushop — who is also a realtor — denied the accusation, and testified that he had bought the ticket. He also noted the winning ticket contained numbers representing his and his mother’s birthdays. – Flawed testimony – In a ruling released this week, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Crawford found problems with the testimony of Dushop, his mother and Prokop. – “I was not impressed with the semantic dance over the purchase of the lottery ticket,” Crawford said in his reasons for judgment. – Crawford ruled it was likely Dushop’s mother used her credit card to buy the ticket, using Dushop’s numbers, and that Prokop paid the Visa bill. – The judge believed the ticket was put away in a safety deposit box, because Angelina Dushop feared Prokop would want a share of the winnings. – But Crawford ruled Prokop failed to prove his case the ticket was his, and that it was stolen by Peter Dushop. – “The plaintiff has failed to establish both of these facts and accordingly the plaintiff’s claim must fail,” the judge said. – *  —djo— }

-Editor’s Pick-  Income splitting: What it is and who benefits   { * “-During the 2011 election campaign, Prime Minister Stephen Harper promised that if he was re-elected his government would allow families with young children to be able to shrink their tax burden by splitting parents’ incomes for tax purposes. – On Thursday, he announced “the family tax cut,” which, when passed, would apply to the current tax year. It is a non-refundable credit of up to $2,000 for couples with children under 18 years.

What did Harper promise in 2011 on income splitting? -In 2011, the plan was to allow families with children under 18 to split a household income of up to $50,000, once the federal budget was balanced. That means, for example, that in a family with a stay-at-home spouse or someone working part-time, the partner with the larger income could assign up to $50,000 of income to the lower earner for tax purposes. – Harper argued that Canada’s income tax system “treats families the same as roommates living under the same roof with no financial attachment. That is not realistic. That is not fair.” – The 2011 Conservative Party platform says income-splitting will provide “significant tax relief for approximately 1.8 million Canadian families — each of them saving, on average, $1,300 per year.” – What is the federal government now proposing? – The only major change to the new promise is that there is now a $2,000 cap on the maximum benefit a family can earn from income splitting. – That means the average saving will be less than the $1,300 average the party promised. But, along with income splitting, the government will also increase the universal child-care benefit and the child-care expense deduction, which means families with children will save an average of $1,140 per year in taxes, the government says. – How much will it cost? – The Department of Finance says this income-splitting proposal will cost the treasury about $2.4 billion in foregone revenues in the current fiscal year, and an average of about $2 billion per year over the next five years. – Who benefits from the family tax cut proposal? – Only families with children under 18 with two parents in different tax brackets would benefit. – The C.D. Howe Institute reports that 85 per cent of all households will receive nothing from new measure, as they don’t fit the criteria. – As for families, the Conservative Party estimates that 1.8 million families will benefit from income splitting, a figure that the Broadbent Institute agrees with. – The institute, however, estimates that 543,000 families would have received a benefit of $2,000 or more under the 2011 proposal. Under the new family tax cut, those families will receive $2,000, the maximum benefit. – The average benefit for the nearly four million families with children under 18 will be $524 in 2015 under the family tax cut, which can be calculated by using data provided in the Broadbent Institute report. – Shortly before he died earlier this year, former Conservative finance minister JimFlaherty was asked about his party’s income-splitting proposal. –  “I’m not sure that overall it benefits our society,” he said. – How do benefits vary from province to province? – Sixty-one per cent of Quebec families with children under 18 would see no benefit at all, compared to 44 per cent in Alberta, according to the Broadbent Institute. That is primarily because of the different family makeups and income levels in the two provinces. – Capping the benefit at $2,000 affects 23 per cent of Alberta families with children under 18, compared to seven per cent in Quebec, according to the institute’s data. – What are the arguments for income-splitting? – Under Canada’s progressive income tax rates, if two families have the same total income, a family with two parents earning around the same amount will pay less tax than a family with two parents earning very different amounts. – “The main reason to implement income splitting is to establish tax fairness,” the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada’s chief executive Andrea Mrozek told Parliament’s standing committee on finance earlier this month. – Mrozek argues that “fixing this inequity can be done either through income splitting or by flattening the tax brackets.” – For Lawrence Solomon, executive director of Energy Probe, one reason to support income splitting is for its social impact. “Because incentives do matter, many of those now involuntarily stuck in that single household demographic would migrate to married status.” – Proponents often point out that income splitting has been available to couples in the U.S. since 1948. Uncle Sam allows married couples to file jointly or individually — the choice is theirs, depending on which way will save them the most tax. The vast majority of couples elect to file jointly. – What are the criticisms of the family tax cut? – For the Boadbent Institute, the proposal is “fundamentally unequal.” Rick Smith, the executive director, says “the greatest benefits would still go to the highest income earners with stay-at-home spouses, but would do little for low-income families” or single-parent families. – Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said income splitting “doesn’t make sense,” and he will reverse the tax cut if elected. After Harper’s announcement he said the proposal “would give a tax break to families like mine or Mr. Harper’s. That’s not good enough.” – Opposition leader Thomas Mulcair didn’t answer directly on Thursday whether he would roll it back if elected prime minister. But he did say, “It will only help a very small minority of people at a time when inequality is increasing in our society after years and years of Liberal and Conservative rule.” – How does pension income splitting compare to the family tax cut? – For pensioners, it’s the actual income that’s split. That income can be from life annuity payments, from a company pension plan, annuity payments from an RRSP or deferred profit-sharing plan, RRIF payments and even the Canada Pension Plan. – For example, with the CPP, if a couple opts for income splitting and one receives $700 a month and the other receives $200, they can both receive a $450 monthly cheque. They must both be at least 60 years old. – The split can sometimes reduce or eliminate the clawback on Old Age Security payments or the age credit for the higher-income spouse. Further tax savings appear if both partners can claim the $2,000 pension income credit. -” * *** & If what we’re hearing from Walter Burien of CAFR1.com is true All Taxation is extortion.***   –djo—  } { ***** & Is it me? or does Harper look like a demented con-artist while pointing to the young blond girl with the red maple leaf in the background in the photo that tops this article?

Could it be more? Easily, it could be more. Could it be less? Well yes, it could be rain as well.” – There will likely be flurries on Saturday, Bourque said, but the larger amounts of precipitation will be coming on Sunday. – The meteorologist said he expects people living in eastern New Brunswick will need an umbrella, while those in central and western parts of the province will need snow shovels. – He said the exact amount of snow or rain will depend on how the low pressure system moves through the province. – “Certainly there is going to be some snow fall there in central and western New Brunswick. Now of course it is difficult to put values on snowfall amounts with this type of system because it could be mixed with rain,” he said. – Bourque said the flurries could hang around until Monday.” – *  —djo— }

-Editor’s Pick-  Daylight Saving Time 2014 ends this weekend    {   }

-Editor’s Pick-  Income splitting: What it is and who benefits   { * “-During the 2011 election campaign, Prime Minister Stephen Harper promised that if he was re-elected his government would allow families with young children to be able to shrink their tax burden by splitting parents’ incomes for tax purposes. – On Thursday, he announced “the family tax cut,” which, when passed, would apply to the current tax year. It is a non-refundable credit of up to $2,000 for couples with children under 18 years.

What did Harper promise in 2011 on income splitting? -In 2011, the plan was to allow families with children under 18 to split a household income of up to $50,000, once the federal budget was balanced. That means, for example, that in a family with a stay-at-home spouse or someone working part-time, the partner with the larger income could assign up to $50,000 of income to the lower earner for tax purposes. – Harper argued that Canada’s income tax system “treats families the same as roommates living under the same roof with no financial attachment. That is not realistic. That is not fair.” – The 2011 Conservative Party platform says income-splitting will provide “significant tax relief for approximately 1.8 million Canadian families — each of them saving, on average, $1,300 per year.” – What is the federal government now proposing? – The only major change to the new promise is that there is now a $2,000 cap on the maximum benefit a family can earn from income splitting. – That means the average saving will be less than the $1,300 average the party promised. But, along with income splitting, the government will also increase the universal child-care benefit and the child-care expense deduction, which means families with children will save an average of $1,140 per year in taxes, the government says. – How much will it cost? – The Department of Finance says this income-splitting proposal will cost the treasury about $2.4 billion in foregone revenues in the current fiscal year, and an average of about $2 billion per year over the next five years. – Who benefits from the family tax cut proposal? – Only families with children under 18 with two parents in different tax brackets would benefit. – The C.D. Howe Institute reports that 85 per cent of all households will receive nothing from new measure, as they don’t fit the criteria. – As for families, the Conservative Party estimates that 1.8 million families will benefit from income splitting, a figure that the Broadbent Institute agrees with. – The institute, however, estimates that 543,000 families would have received a benefit of $2,000 or more under the 2011 proposal. Under the new family tax cut, those families will receive $2,000, the maximum benefit. – The average benefit for the nearly four million families with children under 18 will be $524 in 2015 under the family tax cut, which can be calculated by using data provided in the Broadbent Institute report. – Shortly before he died earlier this year, former Conservative finance minister JimFlaherty was asked about his party’s income-splitting proposal. –  “I’m not sure that overall it benefits our society,” he said. – How do benefits vary from province to province? – Sixty-one per cent of Quebec families with children under 18 would see no benefit at all, compared to 44 per cent in Alberta, according to the Broadbent Institute. That is primarily because of the different family makeups and income levels in the two provinces. – Capping the benefit at $2,000 affects 23 per cent of Alberta families with children under 18, compared to seven per cent in Quebec, according to the institute’s data. – What are the arguments for income-splitting? – Under Canada’s progressive income tax rates, if two families have the same total income, a family with two parents earning around the same amount will pay less tax than a family with two parents earning very different amounts. – “The main reason to implement income splitting is to establish tax fairness,” the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada’s chief executive Andrea Mrozek told Parliament’s standing committee on finance earlier this month. – Mrozek argues that “fixing this inequity can be done either through income splitting or by flattening the tax brackets.” – For Lawrence Solomon, executive director of Energy Probe, one reason to support income splitting is for its social impact. “Because incentives do matter, many of those now involuntarily stuck in that single household demographic would migrate to married status.” – Proponents often point out that income splitting has been available to couples in the U.S. since 1948. Uncle Sam allows married couples to file jointly or individually — the choice is theirs, depending on which way will save them the most tax. The vast majority of couples elect to file jointly. – What are the criticisms of the family tax cut? – For the Boadbent Institute, the proposal is “fundamentally unequal.” Rick Smith, the executive director, says “the greatest benefits would still go to the highest income earners with stay-at-home spouses, but would do little for low-income families” or single-parent families. – Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said income splitting “doesn’t make sense,” and he will reverse the tax cut if elected. After Harper’s announcement he said the proposal “would give a tax break to families like mine or Mr. Harper’s. That’s not good enough.” – Opposition leader Thomas Mulcair didn’t answer directly on Thursday whether he would roll it back if elected prime minister. But he did say, “It will only help a very small minority of people at a time when inequality is increasing in our society after years and years of Liberal and Conservative rule.” – How does pension income splitting compare to the family tax cut? – For pensioners, it’s the actual income that’s split. That income can be from life annuity payments, from a company pension plan, annuity payments from an RRSP or deferred profit-sharing plan, RRIF payments and even the Canada Pension Plan. – For example, with the CPP, if a couple opts for income splitting and one receives $700 a month and the other receives $200, they can both receive a $450 monthly cheque. They must both be at least 60 years old. – The split can sometimes reduce or eliminate the clawback on Old Age Security payments or the age credit for the higher-income spouse. Further tax savings appear if both partners can claim the $2,000 pension income credit. -” * *** & If what we’re hearing from Walter Burien of CAFR1.com is true All Taxation is extortion.***   –djo—  } { ***** & Is it me? or does Harper look like a demented con-artist while pointing to the young blond girl with the red maple leaf in the background in the photo that tops this article?

Could it be more? Easily, it could be more. Could it be less? Well yes, it could be rain as well.” – There will likely be flurries on Saturday, Bourque said, but the larger amounts of precipitation will be coming on Sunday. – The meteorologist said he expects people living in eastern New Brunswick will need an umbrella, while those in central and western parts of the province will need snow shovels. – He said the exact amount of snow or rain will depend on how the low pressure system moves through the province. – “Certainly there is going to be some snow fall there in central and western New Brunswick. Now of course it is difficult to put values on snowfall amounts with this type of system because it could be mixed with rain,” he said. – Bourque said the flurries could hang around until Monday.” – *  —djo— }
