Alistair MacGregor Demands Action From Government on Island Rail Corridor

People on Vancouver Island have been left wondering whether this government deems public rail worth saving. A deadline was set by the B.C. Court of Appeals for this government to decide if the Island Rail Corridor should continue to exist. That deadline is next month, and this government hasn’t conducted consultation with the First Nations whose territories the rail line runs through. Being unable to keep the trains running on time is one thing but sitting by while infrastructure falls into disrepair is another. Why have the Liberals been asleep at the switch, and failing to conduct appropriate consultation?

Canadian Dental Care Plan

Qualification Requirements:

Eligibility for the CDCP is determined based on several criteria. Currently the program is expanding to seniors, children under 18 and people with disabilities. Eventually all Canadians who meet the following criteria will qualify:

  • Lack of access to private dental insurance.
  • Adjusted family net income below $90,000.
  • Canadian residency for tax purposes.
  • Having filed a tax return in the previous year.

Note: Canadian residents who have access to dental coverage through a social program offered by a province or territory and/or the federal government can still qualify for the CDCP if they meet all the eligibility criteria.
