OTTAWA A coalition of industry associations says Bill Morneau must make more changes to the controversial tax proposals he first unveiled last summer to ensure he addresses deep, persistent concerns in the small business community.The group, which came together in recent months as a vocal opponent of the finance minister tax reform plan, is urging him to go further beyond the adjustments he made to calm an uproar that dogged him for months.The message was delivered to Morneau on Monday as part of the coalition first official response since the government announced several amendments last month.Ontario cuts small business taxes to ease transition to higher minimum wageSmall business owners are facing a ‘triple whammy’ that could wipe out the value of their life’s work. Here’s an example we thank you for making progress we remain very concerned by the remaining proposals that appear to be moving ahead, said a letter sent to Morneau office from the Coalition for Small Business Tax Fairness, which represents about 80 associations.The changes to Morneau plan followed an onslaught of complaints from doctors, lawyers, accountants, shop owners, farmers, premiers and even some Liberal backbenchers. They denounced the proposals, contending they would hurt the very middle class the Trudeau government claimed to be trying to help.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Morneau argued the reforms were designed to ensure they targeted wealthy individuals who have used the incorporation of small businesses to gain what the government maintained was an unfair tax advantage.But following a consultation period, Morneau took steps last month to quiet the backlash by tweaking two of the three proposals and abandoning the third one altogether.Amid the outrage, the government also announced it would resurrect a 2015 campaign promise to cut taxes for small businesses.

I own the American Barbell urethane plates (well, I have a set of 10s and a set of 20s) and I really happy with them. They live in the team gym so they get plenty of use and have held up really well so far (only about 6 months old but they basically look new aside from some rust spots on the hubs which all of our plates seem to get). They do bounce more than other plates which some people dislike..
