  • Feds pick off-the-shelf design for military resupply ships - British Columbia - CBC News
    then the navy s design concept has been scaled back causing some military observers to wonder whether the forces are getting the right ship But the delay is also expected to cost the government millions potentially putting it back into the same price range as it was before they put things on hold The parliamentary budget officer warned earlier this year that the 2 6 billion set aside for two or three supply ships was too little and the budget for the project should be 4 13 billion The Conservative government has refuted that estimate saying it will be able to execute the replacements within its budget It also emphasized Sunday that going with the existing German model of vessel will allow them to develop the ships with greater budgetary certainty Maddison said last week that the next step is to decide which type of ship will be built first in Vancouver the new Joint Support Ship design or the Coast Guard s polar ice breaker with files from CBC News The Canadian Press 2013 Share Tools Report Typo Send Feedback Stay Connected with CBC News Mobile Facebook Podcasts Twitter Alerts Newsletter Big Box Advertisement Latest British Columbia News Headlines Canada Revenue Agency mails private records to wrong person The federal privacy commissioner is investigating the Canada Revenue Agency after it mailed confidential financial records on other taxpayers to a B C woman and failed to get them back when she tried to return the package more B C man lives in van for small scale living experiment A Vancouver man is living in a van for a year as an experiment in small scale living more New CRTC wireless rules demand 2 year contract cap unlocked phones The CRTC has unveiled a new code of conduct for cellphone companies that demands a two year cap on contract lengths and unlocked cellphones within three months of buying them more Municipal meeting fertile ground for political recruitment The national meeting of Canadian municipal leaders has wrapped up in Vancouver and over the past three days mayors and councillors have been visited by prominent politicians from all three federal parties more Artisan brews on tap at Craft Beer Week Vancouver Craft Beer Week is underway with local brewers showcasing their best at venues throughout the Lower Mainland more Must Watch Top News Headlines National anti bullying scheme to launch at late teen s school The suicide of 15 year old Jamie Hubley in the fall of 2011 was a tragedy that hit the local community hard but personal connections sent the heartache reverberating through the halls of Parliament Hill and the Ontario legislature too more New CRTC wireless rules demand 2 year contract cap unlocked phones The CRTC has unveiled a new code of conduct for cellphone companies that demands a two year cap on contract lengths and unlocked cellphones within three months of buying them more Canada Revenue Agency mails private records to wrong person The federal privacy commissioner is investigating

  • Trudeau vows to 'raise the bar' for transparency on expenses - British Columbia - CBC News
    Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau Trudeau pointed out that Quebec s 24 Senate seats in comparison with the six Senate seats of each western province give it weight It s to our advantage Abolishing it this is demagoguery he said Since the Liberal Leader made those comments both the Conservatives and the Opposition New Democrats used those comments to turn the tables on Trudeau saying it was clear the Liberal leader was advocating in favour of the status quo But according to Trudeau I also said that and this was not reported nobody who has watched the goings on in the Senate over the past year could possibly support the status quo Trudeau said that anyone preaching wholesale Senate reform as a response to the Senate expenses scandal is pandering After all they know or ought to know that major reforms like creating an elected Senate or abolishing it outright would require protracted Constitutional discussions with the provinces Trudeau said Opening the Constitution Trudeau went on to say the third thing I said was widely reported and it leads to a confession It is a deep dark secret One that apparently my political opponents think they can use against me I am a Quebecer When I am in the presence of other Quebecers I will often use the pronoun we But what I said then was a statement of fact Quebec has 24 Senate seats to Alberta s six That is to Quebec s advantage And Ontario s I might add That is not my opinion It s a statement of Constitutional fact Trudeau said So it stands to reason that abolishing the Senate would disadvantage the East just as electing and therefore empowering the current Senate would disadvantage the West Re opening the Constitution would disadvantage everybody Trudeau said We would have a fruitless round of negotiations that would end in acrimony and distract from the very real challenges our country faces The federal government is currently awaiting a reference ruling from the Supreme Court about its powers to reform or abolish the Senate In the meantime the Senate will move ahead with new rules governing senators travel and expenses A message saying our Senate as it stands today must either change or be abolished was posted on Harper s Facebook page last Tuesday Share Tools Report Typo Send Feedback Stay Connected with CBC News Mobile Facebook Podcasts Twitter Alerts Newsletter Big Box Advertisement Latest British Columbia News Headlines Canada Revenue Agency mails private records to wrong person The federal privacy commissioner is investigating the Canada Revenue Agency after it mailed confidential financial records on other taxpayers to a B C woman and failed to get them back when she tried to return the package more B C man lives in van for small scale living experiment A Vancouver man is living in a van for a year as an experiment in small scale living more New CRTC wireless rules demand 2 year contract cap unlocked phones The CRTC has
