Hello Morneau? The Brooks Chamber has invited Bill Morneau to come to Brooks to explain his proposed tax changes. So far our letter has gone unanswered. Bill! You are the Finance Minister for every Canadian. Please step up! So excited to be following the Canadian Taxpayers Federation and Tracy Acorn at the ACC's lead on this. Morneau please know: Local Businesses are the economy! Bill Morneau please come to Brooks to chat! We will even pay the hotel room!

Town Hall: The Chamber is so privileged to work with the City of Brooks. Last week we offered the City's CAO the opportunity to share the City’s budget with the public before it is presented to council for feedback. We will do the leg-work, they get the benefits of an engaged and informed citizenry. It’s a win-win! Right Barry Morishita Mayor of the City of Brooks?

Wal-Mart… Spend Less Live Better? The Wall Street Journal has exposed Wal-Mart for “red lining” folks in the States. Turns out that ordering online is more expense… so take advantage of Moonlight Madness and use My Community Cash in person!…/now-featured-on-wal-marts-website-hig…
