Re: Atawapiskat

Re: Atawapiskat

On reserve housing is not quite that simple.

The vast majority of on reserve homes are owned by the band. Even if it were permitted why would a tenant pay to renovate a home that they do not, and in most cases cannot own? In a year you might not be living in it.

Re: Atawapiskat

Actually "they" do in most cases pay taxes. In almost all cases income is only tax exempt for a registered Indian if the work is carried out on a reserve.

Re: STARS MB Flight Ops Suspended -15 Critical Incidents

Like to hear from someone with helicopter experience.

They operate a total of seven machines and only have 295 full time and 76 part time ops. employees. Does that number seem reasonable?

Re: STARS MB Flight Ops Suspended -15 Critical Incidents

The Stars Foundation, which is the fund raising division, took in about $36 million in 2012. They spent about $20 million on expenses and gave Stars about $16 million to play with. Wages for the foundation (not related to flight operations) were just under $5 million plus $1.1 million for management...

Re: STARS MB Flight Ops Suspended -15 Critical Incidents

Stars carried out 217 "missions" in Saskatchewan in 2012.

Public accounts says they were paid $10.5 million.

$48,387.10 per "mission". Plus whatever they managed to scam from fundraising.

Good times.

Re: STARS MB Flight Ops Suspended -15 Critical Incidents

Interesting that the surplus funds reported to CRA are donated to a charity. The charity is STARS.

Saskatchewan was also a no bid contract awarded by a minister who retired shortly after due to health concerns and then became an executive at STARS.

Re: RCMP ram kid on ATV

The incident in the video with the quad took place at a busy schoolyard. The driver was dropping his girlfriend off. To the best of my knowledge he was wanted by the RCMP for not wearing a helmet and was never prosecuted for anything.
