    This new scheme to take away any incentive away from starting a business is proof that our federal government is more ignorant and niave about business then any one could ever imagine. Business is about risk and reward....with emphasis on risk and sacrifice. The business owner is being attacked by both the provincial and federal government. We as a family business have made the decision to stop all hiring and capital investment in our HARD earned and not very easy business. We fully intend to pull back as a result of electrical costs, minimum wage, and now this new tax attack on the base that creates the jobs. The Liberals are completely whacked!!!
