Free Canadian personal income tax preparation software

I used Free Tax Software last year. Filed my tax return only through this software.

Canada Votes 2008

I will vote this afternoon for Canada.
It is Burnaby – Douglas. Let me see the riding profile.

This is an urban riding, located east of Vancouver on the southern shore of Burrard Inlet. It contains that part of Burnaby bounded in the east, north and west by the city limits and on the south by the Kingsway.
According to the 2006 census, more than 47 per cent of this riding’s residents are immigrants. About 30 per cent are of Chinese origin.
Burnaby-Douglas has a diverse economy, which includes retail trade, manufacturing and other services. Simon Fraser University is here. Residents are well-educated – almost 30 per cent over age 25 have a university certificate or degree. The average family income is $78,973 and the unemployment rate is 6.7 per cent.
This riding was created in 1996, drawing three-quarters of its population from the old Burnaby-Kingsway riding. In 2004, it retained 85 per cent of its population and added about 7,500 people from Vancouver South-Burnaby.
Population: 112,119 (2006 census; an increase of 3.0% since 2001)

Redesign the Blog

In the new year of 2008, I am trying to redesign the blog.
The default template from Six Apart is looks boring.
Now I have not finish my design yet. If you have some idea, just leave your comment below.
Or, if you want to see something on my Blog, do not hesitate to comment it.
I have some big plan in 2008.
David Yin’s blog has following stats last month, December 2007.
9,665 UV and 14,358 PV.
I hope it can reach 90,000 UV per month in the end of 2008.
Is it too crazy? I don’t think so.
More and more traffic will be attracted from Search Engine and other related sites.
