I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Cypriot community on the occasion of Cyprus Independence Day.
On February 19, 1959, Greece, Turkey, the United Kingdom and Cyprus were signatories to The Zurich and London Agreement, which formed the basis of the Cypriot Constitution. Following the signing of the accord, Cypriot President, Archbishop Makarios III said “Έλληνες Κύπριοι, νενικήκαμεν!” (“Greek Cypriots, we have won!”).
I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Chinese community on the occasion of The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as TheMoonFestival.
The festival dates back 3,000 years and is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar. The date parallels the Autumnal Equinox in the solar calendar, when the moon is at its roundest and fullest.
Toronto – Councillor Jim Karygiannis had his fears confirmed when he read the terms and conditions of the Uber website https://www.uber.com/legal/can/terms which contains the following statement:

Uber under no circumstance accepts liability in connection with and/or arising from the transportation services provided by the Transportation Provider or any acts, actions, behaviour, conduct, and/or negligence on the part of the Transportation Provider.

I am writing with respect to a Canadian company which is not collecting HST. The company has been asked publicly a number of times if it collects HST and if its receipts have a HST number. Time and time again the company has not answered.
As Eid al-Adha begins, I would like to offer warm regards to all Canadians who are observing this religious festival.
One of the most important rights protected by our Constitution is the right to worship. The observance of Eid al-Adha is a time to visit with family and friends, while remembering those who are less fortunate and the importance of religion in one’s life.
