Your Government promised and delivered. Effective April 1 2017, almost 400,000 persons will now be exempt from paying income tax because they are now below the $1.5 million tax threshold.

I ask for wisdom and strength so that I am able to see things for what they truly are, not what we think they are or comfortable with....
