Both Liberals and Conservatives milking the middle class
It is both amazing and mind-boggling how our duly elected representatives within the House of Commons rationalize the implications of the Trudeau government’s proposed tax reforms, when both the Liberals and Conservatives continue to waste taxpayer dollars in a parliamentary democracy which fails to protect the interests of Canadians, the middle class and small business, while protecting the interests of the privileged who continue to abuse Canada’s tax system.
It was stated in the House of Commons that the Liberal government has allocated $1 billion to the Canada Revenue Agency with the intent to investigate off-shore and other tax-evasion schemes.
If the Conservatives are the official opposition who were elected into the House of Commons to hold the government to account, in order to close off the off-shore and other tax evasion loopholes within the tax code, this only requires Parliament to repeal the provisions within the tax code which allows for these schemes.
Canadians pay our elected representatives to represent our interests. If both the Liberals and Conservatives had any integrity in relation to protecting taxpayer dollars and modernizing Canada’s tax system, the cost to repeal the provisions with the tax code closing off-shore loopholes and other tax shelters would only cost the Canadian taxpayer between $200,000 and $300,000 before a parliamentary committee as opposed to the government allocating $1 billion to the CRA with the intent to investigate all those who are abusing the system — clearly displaying that economics is not an exact science, cost accounting is.
This illustrates that both the Liberals and the Conservatives are milking the system, small and middle class. Dale Dutchak, Moose Jaw
