These are confusing times for the Canadian economy; when the dollar is low, there are winners and there are losers. But one thing we all understand, a low dollar is good for the tourism industry. But you can't have a tourism industry without advertising. Look at those Newfoundland tourism ads, boy have they ever paid off. Tourism is now a billion dollar industry in Newfoundland. Yes with a B.

Three years ago the Harper Government went to court in a fight with Canadian veterans. The government argued that if a disabled veteran was compensated for say, losing a limb, then the government should be able to clawback that money out of their pension. Now thankfully, the court ruled no, the government can’t take pension money away from the disabled because losing a limb is not the same as getting a bonus at work.
