Save local business from Trudeau tax hikes
To the editor,
Local businesses are the backbone of our economy.
They’re where we work, where we meet – the heart and soul of our communities.
Canadians expect their government to stand up for these local businesses. But Justin Trudeau’s Liberals are planning huge new tax hikes that will hit these local businesses when they can least afford it.
The Trudeau Liberals can’t control their reckless spending, and this new tax grab is putting local businesses at risk.
Nova Scotia Liberal Members of Parliament have failed to defend local businesses. They voted against a Conservative motion to extend the consultation period on these tax changes, which would give local business operators and their workers a chance to have their voices heard.
Nova Scotia Liberal MPs are sitting in silence while Justin Trudeau and his government attempt to push these tax hikes through.
They’re not interested in how this will impact communities across Canada. They don’t care about how this will affect local businesses or the families who run them.
These local businesses are run by good people, honest and hardworking, who put everything they’ve got into their work. And their workers depend on them for a steady living. They’re the mechanics who keep our cars running, the coffee shop owners who give us a place to get together, and the farmers who keep our families fed.
Conservatives believe that local businesses and the Canadians who run them deserve respect from their government.
That’s why we’re fighting these Liberal tax hikes every step of the way.
And we’re asking Canadians to join us to save local businesses.
