Well, the title seems to sum it all up! Wendy’s has a current APP-ONLY special for $1 for large fries with any other purchase. Pretty great deal for fries. Just make sure you have the Wendy’s app downloaded. Am I the only one now craving fries??? And it’s not even 9 am, great! haha
This deal is in effect until May 29, 2022, so still lots of time to grab some yummy fries for a loonie.
To say that we’re all keeping our eyes carefully on gas prices now seems like a massive understatement! Costco definitely has the lowest prices. Of course, this means you have to be a Costco member to get these prices, but most people now make back their money on a yearly membership by buying their gas at Costco exclusively. Or, at least as often as they can.
So, let’s check out what the prices are right now – Monday, May 16, 2022. If you readers like this post, I’ll try to do these every Monday.
Calgary Costco Gas Prices – North location (11588 Sarcee Trail NW)
Regular gas $164.9/liter
Calgary Costco Gas Prices – 12905 Buffalo Run Boulevard
A little less out this way…
Regular gas $158.9/liter
Premium gas $168.9/liter
Calgary Costco Gas Prices – South location (Deerfoot Meadows) – 99 Heritage Gate S.E.
And these are the highest Costco gas prices right now – the South Calgary location down near the Ikea.
Can I get EI if I quit my job? This is a very important question and something that a lot of people do not understand. Many people think that they have a better chance to collect Employment Insurance if they quit their job instead of being fired. This is false. Why is this so and can I collect EI if I quit?
Can I Get EI if I Quit My Job? Possible in A Few Cases but Difficult
The EI Digest defines voluntary leave or quit as ” the claimant and not the employer took the initiative in terminating the employer-employee relationship.” it goes on to say that “a claimant is disqualified from receiving any benefits if the claimant lost any employment because of their misconduct or voluntarily left any employment without just cause.”
And that is the key. A person who quits their job must have just cause or you can say a valid reason for doing so. As a result, the onus is on the claimant to prove that they had just cause in quitting their job. This is quite different from someone being fired where the employer has to prove misconduct.
What is Just Cause?
Section 29(c) of the EI Act defines it as below:
Just cause for voluntarily leaving an employment or taking leave from an employment exists if the claimant had no reasonable alternative to leaving or taking leave, having regard to all the circumstances, including any of the following:
sexual or other harassment;
obligation to accompany a spouse, common-law partner or dependent child to another residence;
discrimination on a prohibited ground of discrimination within the meaning of the Canadian Human Rights Act;
working conditions that constitute a danger to health or safety;
obligation to care for a child or a member of the immediate family;
reasonable assurance of another employment in the immediate future;
significant modification of terms and conditions respecting wages or salary;
excessive overtime work or refusal to pay for overtime work;
significant changes in work duties;
antagonism with a supervisor if the claimant is not primarily responsible for the antagonism;
practices of an employer that are contrary to law;
discrimination with regard to employment because of membership in an association, organization or union of workers;
undue pressure by an employer on the claimant to leave their employment, and;
any other reasonable circumstances that are prescribed.
The other reasonable circumstances referred to in EIA 29(c)(xiv) are those which are prescribed by regulation Footnote1
What does the above mean? In layman’s terms, it means that you had to quit your job as you had no other choice based on the reasons mentioned in the EI Act. Also, it is not enough to say that you had a reason to quit, but you have to prove it and show that you tried to remedy the situation or look for an alternative etc. If a Benefits Officer looks at your application and sees that you had just cause, then you can be approve for EI.
It is possible to collect EI if you quit your job. However, you must prove that you had “just cause” in leaving your job. As seen above, this is not a casual reason but a last resort. Because of that, you must think long and hard if you are thinking on quitting your job. Especially, if you are wanting to collect EI while you are not working. Before making at decision, look at your situation and do your research as knowledge is power.

Should I open a TFSA? It’s an interesting question as it seems to be all the rage right now. It seems like an easy way to save money. However, before getting a TFSA, you should know a few things about it first.
What is a TFSA?
It is a tax free savings account. This means that whatever money you put in it, the interest, dividends and capital gains earned in this account is tax free for life. You can withdraw money from it at anytime and the money withdrawn is tax free!
What can I have in a TFSA?
You can have a wide range of investments inside of a TFSA such as:
securities listed on a designated stock exchange
guaranteed investment certificates
certain shares of small business corporations
Advantages of Opening a TFSA
The biggest advantage is that any interest, capital gains or dividend income earned is tax free! As a result you can grow your money faster than in a typical investment or savings account as income earned in these accounts are subject to taxation when either earned or when money is withdrawn. Another advantage is that you can withdraw from it anytime which gives flexibility. Finally, anyone can set up a TFSA as you do not need to be earning income to have one.
Disadvantages of Opening a TFSA
One of the biggest disadvantages is that if you use it as a savings account, the interest rates are not very high. For example, if I want to put money in a savings account within a tax free savings account, the interest I would receive would be about 1% per year. If a put it into a high interest savings account, I can earn some where in between 1.5 to 3% which is a bit higher and can earn a higher rate of return even after the interest is taxed. Another disadvantage is that you can only invest a certain amount every year. For example the TFSA limit for 2022 was $6000.00. However, if you have never invested in it since its beginning then you could possibly invest up to $81500.
Should I Open a TFSA?
Yes you should! The only reason you might not open one is that you would be only using it as a savings account where the interest rates would be low. However, if you do not need to use the money in the foreseeable future, you might look at putting the money into a GIC where you might get a little better interest rate and there is no risk. But if you are an investor and you do not mind the risks involved investing in securities or mutual funds, then opening a TFSA is an absolute must as you will grow you money faster. So open a TFSA and use it correctly and you will not be disappointed!
