SOUTH ASIAN PULSE RADIO HEADLINES JANUARY 27TH 2017 

  1. Famous Indo-Canadian journalist Sukhminder Cheema has died in Ottawa. He was the editor of several Punjabi newspapers including the Indo-Canadian Awaaz, Chardi Kala and Punjabi Tribune as well as a talk show host for a number of radio stations. He leaves behind his wife, Gurdeep Kaur Cheema, son Sahibjot Singh Cheema and daughter Manhargeet Kaur Cheema.
  2. Ontario Premier Kathleen Wayne has doubled funding for 100 cities with transit. He was accompanied by Transport Minister Steven Del Duca. She said funding will be increased to 2.5 cents per litre in 2019–20, three cents in 2020–21 and four cents in 2021–22. The province is also putting in $334.5 million in gas tax funding to 99 municipalities. This amount is expected to increase to about $401.3 million in 2019–20, $481.5 million in 2020–21 and $642 million in 2021–22. Kathleen Wayne has also stopped John Tory’s plan to put tolls on DVP and Gardiner. But Toronto city councilors are not happy about it as the city requires $160m to $230m that could have been generated though the toll tax to meet the city’s needs. Experts think the move is keeping in view the June 2018 elections and levying more taxes could have hurt.
