Gov­ern­ment driv­ing away small busi­ness

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Feds to stop un­fair in­come sprin­kling (July 19)

All the gov­ern­ment is do­ing is driv­ing med­i­cal and busi­ness pro­fes­sion­als out of this coun­try to re­lo­cate else­where where they are given more in­cen­tive to pro­vide their ser­vices. How is it that the Trudeau gov­ern­ment is tar­get­ing so-called “wealthy” small busi­ness own­ers, but then call­ing for “tax fair­ness?” First of all, what con­sti­tutes a “wealthy” small busi­ness owner or en­tre­pre­neur? A suc­cess­ful one? One who works tire­lessly to gen­er­ate enough rev­enue to em­ploy in­di­vid­u­als and cre­ate jobs? One who works tire­lessly to save for re­tire­ment be­cause that will be the only source of re­tire­ment in­come for them?

Yes, let’s talk about tax fair­ness — fair­ness for those who work around the clock with no ben­e­fits, no sick days, no paid hol­i­days, no pen­sions. Those peo­ple are the small busi­ness own­ers and en­trepreneurs in this coun­try who have taken a risk to start their own busi­ness only to be knocked down. The Lib­eral gov­ern­ment is ru­in­ing this coun­try and driv­ing away any and all small busi­ness own­ers who are pun­ished for be­ing suc­cess­ful and have no in­cen­tive to stay here.
