Weekly MP Report from Jay Hill

first_imgMP Report by Jay Hill, M.P.“Staying on Course Towards Economic Recovery” The results are in and they are impressive.  This week, our Conservative Government presented our third report on the implementation of Canada’s Economic Action Plan which clearly demonstrates that in just over 100 days we’re already stimulating the economy and protecting and creating Canadian jobs. Other pivotal measures in the Economic Action Plan that have also been implemented include: Our strategic actions both before and during the recession have had a positive effect.  We’ve begun to see stabilization in Canada’s economic situation well in advance of other countries, as well as the early beginnings of a recovery. It’s our Conservative Government’s intention to stay on course, including in Parliament, to ensure that Canadians continue to reap the benefits of our Economic Action Plan! While in Vancouver last week I was joined by the Premier to announce the latest round of British Columbia projects in which the federal, provincial and municipal governments will invest.  A further 174 projects totalling $719-million will soon add to the frenzy of construction activity that BC residents have been witnessing throughout the past several months. Reducing the tax burden on Canadian families and businesses through significant permanent personal income tax relief and moving towards the most competitive overall tax rate on new business investment among industrialized countries.Delivering targeted, additional financial assistance to Canadians who are currently out of work, while providing skills training to help them prepare for the jobs of the future.Boosting the retail and construction industries through the Home Renovation Tax Credit and the First Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit.Ensuring the continued stability of the Canadian financial system, which has been recognized as a world leader, and improving access to financing for Canadian families and businesses. Our significant tax reductions have made Canada a more attractive place to live, invest and do business.  Tax Freedom Day now arrives 20 days earlier than when we took office.  Our financial sector remains strong and Canadian banks are secure and the most stable globally.  And Canada’s unemployment rate is a full point lower than the United States for the first time in over 30 years. Thanks to our rapid response, 90% of the Plan is already being implemented.  Funds have been committed to 7,500 infrastructure projects with 4,000 projects already launched in the first six months of our 24-month plan.  Job creating projects in communities all across Canada are underway to help cushion us against the impact of the global economic recession.  Canada came into this global recession on strong financial footing.  Our Conservative Government aggressively paid down debt, thereby allowing us to introduce temporary stimulus measures so we could swiftly come to the aid of Canadians when they needed it most.  However, this recovery is fragile.  We are not out of the woods yet, which is why it’s crucial that we continue to implement our Plan. What’s more, these activities will ensure that our cities, towns and villages possess critical infrastructure – roads, bridges, recreation facilities, sewers, water systems and more – so that communities and residents can thrive and flourish for decades to come. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Bale should stay at Tottenham, insists QPR boss Hughes

first_imgGareth Bale is too young to move abroad and should stay at Tottenham, according to QPR boss Mark Hughes.Barcelona are among the top European clubs to have been linked with a summer move for the Spurs and Wales wide-man.But Hughes, who played for the Catalan giants, believes Bale, 21, would be well advised to remain at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future.He said: “He’s still a very young man and has got a lot to achieve in the Premier League. He’s got a huge profile and there’s no reason to go when you’re so young.Nedum Onouha faces the task of trying to stop Bale.“I went when I was 22 and it was probably a little bit too soon for me. If I’d had the opportunity later, I think I would have been more successful than I was.“If that [moving abroad] is something Gareth wants to do, then in the future his ability will give him that opportunity.“He’s playing at a good club that are challenging for honours. There’s no reason for him to leave.”Hughes’ side will encounter Bale when Spurs visit Loftus Road for a game both teams badly need to win.Rangers are battling to avoid relegation, while the north London club are trying to avoid dropping out of the top four.“When Gareth’s got the ball you’ve got try to stop him having the effect he can have with the ability he’s got,” said Hughes.“That’s difficult to do, but we’ll endeavour to try and do it.”Click here for the QPR v Tottenham quizSee also: Hughes: QPR full of confidence ahead of Spurs clashAdvertising on West London Sport Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Why Chelsea need to be patient and persist with Sarriball

first_imgMaurizio Sarri arrived in England as something of an enigma. Fans of Italian football waxed lyrical about his Napoli side, a team that came close to toppling the mighty Juventus while playing some of the most attractive football in Europe.Napoli improved every season he was there, ending the 2017/18 campaign with 91 points, the most a team has achieved in Serie A without winning the title. That total would have won them the league in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015, and drawn them level in 2016 and 2017 – that’s 11 of the 14 seasons since the Italian top flight switched to 20 teams.It seems unlikely that Napoli will finish anywhere near that total this term, despite having the vastly experienced ex-Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti at the helm. In fact, they are currently eight points worse off than at the same stage last term.So, considering his great success with Napoli, what has gone wrong for Sarri at Chelsea? Can the Italian turn it around? And should the club keep faith in his methods?The emergence of SarriballSarri’s style of football at Napoli became known in social media circles as ‘Sarriball’ or ‘Sarrismo’. Videos of his team’s attacking moves often went viral, and even Pep Guardiola declared them one of the best teams he had played against.But such a distinct style can take time to implement. You need the right environment and circumstances to make such a drastic change to a team’s philosophy. And you need your players to buy into it 100%.Exporting that style from one league to another can also bring problems. And if results are not instant, players and fans can start to have their doubts.After the 6-0 thrashing by Manchester City, TV sports’ pundits were quick to lay the boot in with lines such as: “This isn’t Napoli, this isn’t Serie A – this is Chelsea and the Premier League”, as if to undermine his achievements in Italy and suggest he is now out of his depth.But is it really as simple as that? Sarri’s system relies on players being highly motivated and committed to playing with great intensity. He likes to press high and recover possession quickly, but his current players seem incapable of performing this way over a sustained period of time. As the season has gone on, the pressing has stopped and the intensity has all but disappeared. With so many players aged 30 or over, this could just be a physical problem. But Sarri himself has also questioned the mentality of his squad.Where does the buck stop?The situation raises an interesting dilemma: Should the club pander to the players and recruit yet another coach (as of 13th February, his odds to be the next Premier League manager sacked have been slashed to 4/5 by Betway following the Manchester City game on February 10)? Or do they give Sarri the opportunity to have a summer clear-out and start building a team in his own image? It only takes a few key voices in the squad to embrace the philosophy for it to permeate the whole dressing room. And with everyone working from the same page, spectacular results can be achieved.The stubborn approachApart from a switch of formation in his early days at Napoli, which saw him ditch a 4-3-1-2 system in favour of a 4-3-3, he was always accused of being stubborn and having no ‘Plan B’. This is a common criticism thrown at managers who have a clear philosophy. Pep Guardiola was accused of this at Barcelona and Bayern Munich despite enjoying monumental success. To accuse a coach of having no Plan B after he has just secured a record points total for his team seems absurd, but when his style of football appears to be failing it becomes a valid concern. But everyone at Chelsea knew what they were getting with Sarri; this is a man who sticks to his guns until he gets it right. While other coaches might opt to play according to the players at his disposal, Sarri will not stray from his vision and would rather change the players at his disposal than sacrifice his style.Those who claim that Sarriball can never work in the Premier League just need to look at the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp. Both needed time for their systems to flourish, and both refused to compromise on their vision, even when it was suggested they had been exposed by the toughness of the Premier League.
