Top schools take aim at daCosta Cup

first_img outside chances Western Bureau: Tomorrow the drama and spectacle that is the ISSA/Flow daCosta Cup season will get under way and the expectation is that it will be a season of superlative football action. Last year, with Patrick ‘Jackie’ Walters in charge, Clarendon College claimed the coveted title with victory over St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) and are among the favourites in this year’s return. But Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis, who is now pulling the strings, feels no pressure. Davis believes flying under the radar could make it better for the Chapelton-based school’s prospect. “This is a brand-new team we are working with and as a result the expectation may not be too high, which is good, because it gives us time to take each game one at a time and build our season,” reasoned Davis. “It is going to be a difficult season, which is why we need to make the players aware of what they will be playing for. Teams we know will be coming at us so we need that edge and we will be fine,” said Davis. Winning last year broke a 14-year title drought for Clarendon College and they will want to hold on to the title at least another season with coach Davis now in charge. “While we are expecting a tough season with an almost brand-new squad, we remain champions and will compete as such. We are hoping to surprise the pundits with a solid season that could deliver for us the title once again,” Davis said of the seven-time winners. Cornwall College, who are the winningest school in the history of the competition with 11 titles to their name, will also be among the favourites, along with STETHS, Rusea’s and Clarendon College. Glenmuir, champions in 2012, and Frome Technical, winners of the 2003 edition, could be spoilers. Add for good measure the outside chances of Paul Bogle, Marcus Garvey High and Cedric Titus High and the plot begins to thicken rather quickly. These are the teams to watch, according to some pundits, but it’s the Dr Dean Weatherly-conditioned Cornwall College who could be the team to watch. Cornwall’s title drought is now into its 14th year and only victory will appease their most rabid supporters. In fact, the current squad assembled by Weatherly could be the ones to break the winless cycle. “It will be competitive this year and we have a good chance to go deep into the competition based on the fact these players have matured and are more experienced, plus we have seen the players become more mature, which bodes well for the season,” said Weatherly. “Cornwall should be in a position to break the drought this year,” he added. Aaron Lawrence of Rusea’s also has his eyes focused on the daCosta Cup title and is hoping to bring his school level with Cornwall on number of titles won. The Hanover-based school has 10 titles. “We are a championship school. We thrive on competition and will raise our game and level each match. The heritage here is massive and Rusea’s will be one of the schools to watch this year,” Lawrence reasoned. STETHS will also be tough. They have won the crown four times, their last being in 2013. They will be challenging for all four titles on offer, but it’s the coveted daCosta Cup they want the most. “We want to win all four titles,” declared the school’s technical director, Wendell Downswell. “The group of players we have is one that can do a good job. STETHS, this year, will be challenging on all four fronts,” Downswell stated. “We have enough quality to push all the way,” he said.last_img read more

Op-Ed: Zimmer comments on Universal Child Care Benefit

first_imgSincerely,Bob ZimmerAdvertisement The Canada Child Tax Benefit has not been changed. Parents who are eligible for this benefit will continue to receive it in addition to the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit. The Canada Child Tax Benefit is a non-taxable amount and may include the national child benefit supplement and the child disability benefit.Why are you eliminating the Child Tax Credit?The Government has merged the Child Tax Credit with the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit. While the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit replaces the old Child Tax Credit, every family with children under 18 is better off because of this change.  The old Child Tax Credit was not a “$2,255 non-taxable benefit” as some have suggested, it was a tax credit. It provided up to $338 per child per year and only went to families with children under 18 that paid federal income tax. That means that individuals with no taxable income did not benefit from the Child Tax Credit. For example, families with incomes under $30,000 only received two per cent of the benefits of the Child Tax Credit, compared to around 27 per cent for theUniversal Child Care Benefit. To be clear, with the new enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit, all families are receiving more money to support the costs of raising a family. If you have children under the age of 18, there is no situation where you will be worse off than preceding years because of these changes.Are you eliminating the ability to claim an eligible dependent?Advertisement The following is an Op-Ed from MP of Prince George-Peace River Bob Zimmer. In the article he goes on to discuss the Universal Child Care Benefit and he discusses some concerns about it.On July 20th the Government of Canada sent approximately $3 billion to over 3.8 million families across Canada through the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit. Canadian families received a lump-sum payment of $520 for each child under 6 and $420 for those 6 through 17. This is the biggest, single, one-time payment to families by the Government ever.- Advertisement -I know there have been a lot of questions and misinformation surrounding the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit and how it will affect you family. I’d like to take this opportunity to address some of those concerns.What was the Universal Child Care Benefit before it was changed?In 2006, our Government introduced the Universal Child Care Benefit. It provided all eligible families with $100 per month for each child under the age of 6. The Universal Child Care Benefit provided direct federal support to approximately 1.6 million families with over 2 million young children.How has the Universal Child Care Benefit been changed?Advertisement No. Parents who are eligible to claim this amount can continue to do so.In addition to the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit, this spring families received nearly $2 billion in tax refunds through the Family Tax Cut. The Family Tax Cut allows couples with children under 18 to split their income and reduce their tax burden by as much as $2,000. We have also increased the maximum dollar limits that can be claimed under the Child Care Expense Deduction by $1,000. In addition, we have doubled the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit and made it refundable.Through these initiatives we are ensuring that more money goes directly into the pockets of hard-working Canadian families.center_img Member of ParliamentPrince George-Peace RiverChair, BC/Yukon Caucus The Universal Child Care Benefit has been increased from $100 to $160 per month for each child under the age of 6 and has been expanded to include $60 per month for each child aged 6 through 17. Over the course of a full year, parents will receive almost $2,000 for each child under the age of 6 and up to $720 for each child aged 6 through 17. Approximately 4 million families are now benefiting from the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit.Is the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit taxable?Yes, the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit is a taxable benefit and is taxed in the hands of the lower-income spouse or common-law partner. For single parents, the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit can be included in the income of one of their children.What are you doing to the Canada Child Tax Benefit?Advertisementlast_img read more
