A Big Concern: my letter to my MP

I have talked with a few people, and we are quite concerned over recent Taxation Changes implemented by your Government.
the changes I am talking about are.
to the Personal Tax Exemption( I believe it's called.), changing from $9000 to $8600 (approx) thus meaning more tax is taken off each paycheck.

coinciding with the GST dropping.

Now the GST dropping I agree with, but it only really benefits people that Spend more.
it doesn't really benefit people in the lower income bracket. especially now, since that the lower income bracket is now getting less Net income to spend.

to sum up what I am asking Why is your Government Taxing the Poor?!?

I am currently awaiting an reply. I will post what ever is replied to me.

note, to people that do not pay much attention to politics this is a federal issue not a provincial one. I notice people get them mixed up quite regularly.

history repeats its self

I was standing in line at saveon and read the cover of time magazine.
it said Hilary clinton was considering running for presidency.

seriously Bush then clinton then another bush and now another clinton!!

something is sounding fixed.

todays gas results

well running some on Cheveron 87 fuel.
I traveled 506Km. and filled to 32litres.
15.8Km/lit (6.33 lit/100km)

hmm I didn't expect the milage better.
I did notice a performance increase over using Shell.

i think my next fill up will be at petrocan again so I can get exact amounts.
my last posting was running off of memory for the petrocan results.

better gas?

since I have to fill my tank about every 4 trips to work.
I work in surrey so I commute about 120k/day.
I have started keeping track of the millage.
now I am comparing gas stations with the milage I am getting.
so far I am getting interesting results.

from petrocan can I drive about 495Km for about 36 litres, 7.2 lit/100km (13.9km/lt)

now, cause of the blackout I had to get Gas at Shell,
the first tank lasted, 485Km for 32litres, 6.6 lit/100km (15.2KM/lt)

thats roughly an 9% savings going to shell!! over petrocan.

now that shell gas was not pure shell gas, I still had some petrolcan in the tank from the last fill, so I am interested in tomorrows millage.

now there is also an adverse effect to using the shell gas. I notice the car has less power when using shell gas. I expected this though, cause of the performance vs endurance. do not go hand in hand. you have to give up some power to get a better millage.

for the next tank I am going to try out Chevron. and see.
