Biden, White House aides said, aimed not just for altering the country’s trajectory, but keeping it on that path, a move that required legislating, not emergency declarations. Other aspects of the climate and health care bill will take much longer to see. The chips bill was more than a year in the making, but finally cleared Congress late last month with significant bipartisan margins. “We are working hand-in-hand with private companies who are already announcing new investments here at home,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. The White House is also expected to hold an event after the climate and health care package clears the House.

Liberals planning temporary solution to dental care promise: sourcesOTTAWA — Sources close to the government's proposed $5.3-billion dental-care program say the Liberals are planning a temporary solution that involves giving money directly to patients in order to keep their promise to the NDP while they work on a permanent answer. The Liberals promised the NDP a new dental-care program for low- and middle-income families in March as part of a supply and confidence agreement to prevent an election before 2025. Though details are scarce, the sources say the temporary solution would involve giving qualifying families the money directly to fund their dental health services while the government works on a more permanent, expanded program. NDP health critic Don Davies did not directly address the temporary plan either, but said in a statement the party has "identified several ways to ensure the target groups can access dental care on the identified timelines." The NDP are now focused on pushing the Liberals to introduce dental-care legislation when Parliament resumes in the fall, Davies said.

Those selling their homes in the township of King, Ontario will not be getting what their neighbours received just earlier this year. The price fall in King and lower inventory is indicative of how increased interest rates to combat inflation have cooled bidding wars across the GTA. And significantly lower,” said Julianne Boileau, a sales representative at RE/MAX Hallmark York Group Reality that services several GTA areas, including King. Sales in the GTA have fallen by 47 per cent compared to July 2021 and are expected to drop further into 2023. In July 2021, the average selling price in King was $1,921,694 across 48 homes.

We are a vast, hugely populated province that, like it or not, is the beating heart of Canada’s economic power. The person in charge of all this is Sylvia Jones, Ontario’s new deputy premier and minister of health. The Dufferin-Caledon MPP, I’m sure a perfectly pleasant person, has a radio diploma from Fanshawe College and zero background in anything related to health care. Ford’s cabinet members are shy and hide from the media, which may be why citizens have lost confidence in government. And my role and my goal as minister is to make sure that that happens.” Great stuff if it were still 2018.
