Even Liberals tell Trudeau: Call off the tax war on small businesses

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Justin Trudeau inherited millions of dollars from his rich dad, Pierre Trudeau, who inherited it from his rich dad, Charles-Emile Trudeau, who’d started up a chain of gas stations.

In other words, Trudeau never met the last man in his family to work. (Did you know that Justin is 45 years old, yet his father’s law firm and accounting firm still handles his trust fund?)

But Justin Trudeau has decided that anyone with a small business — like a farm, or a small law firm or doctor’s office — is just a scammer, just a cheater.

It’s the same language of envy that’s being used by Bill Morneau, the finance minister. Morneau didn’t inherit his fortune, or earn it — he married it, wedding Nancy McCain, the potato heiress.

Morneau will never have to work again, and neither will his children, or their children.

And he acts like it. Sheila Gunn Reid has shown us how Morneau’s lifestyle is seeping into his public life. For one thing, Morneau’s personal assistant submits hundreds and hundreds of dollars of expense claims with no receipts.

So that’s how Trudeau and Morneau live. But you’re a tax cheat.

How is Trudeau’s “let them eat cake” style going down with severely normal people? 

Tonight I’ll tell you about some of their fellow Liberals, who say Trudeau and Morneau’s tax plan has triggered a constituent backlash.

NEXT: Daniel Akbari, sharia Lawyer and expert, joins me to talk about Vancouver Pride's decision to suddenly ban an anti-sharia parade float that had previously won awards.

Akbari also talks about how the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated organizations like the ACLU.

THEN: Daniel Pipes, the president of the Middle East Forum, comes on to discuss what's happening in Greece.

Pipes says that country has developed a "surprisingly simple" solution to the illegal immigration crisis, one that other nations could adopt.

FINALLY: I read your messages to me!

Just a thought to ponder with…

Grandiosity is a symptom experienced by people with bipolar disorder during manic and hypomanic episodes. People experiencing grandiosity often describe larger-than-life feelings of superiority. In short, it is an exaggerated sense of one’s importance, power, knowledge or identity, which often has religious overtones.

It is estimated that more than half of people with bipolar disorder will experience grandiose thinking.

It’s worth noting that there were more millionaires per capita in the Soviet Union than in the rest of the Western Nations at the time. It’s obvious the rotten potato subscribes to that mentality!

John Williams, I find it difficult to relate to an Isis Fighter opening a business in his Homeland, using Canadian money, unless the business was “HAVE SWORD WILL TRAVEL”. When you want someone killed call this business guy. (All customers have confidentiality )

- I remember Obama’s “you didn’t build it” speech. I heard Elizabeth Warren say it before that. It shows someone who either doesn’t understand how government is funded or thinks their supporters are stupid. With this crop of Liberals, I think they really don’t understand how the real world works. They have immersed themselves in Marxist dogma & it shows.

- These migrants didn’t come to the West for work, they came for free stuff. This is part of the globalist nightmare.

- What we see in the Vancouver gay pride parade is the fact that these victim groups don’t represent the people they pretend to represent. From feminists to gay rights activists, it’s about using people for a political agenda, not human rights.

Let the Trudo’s show go on. The economy in Canada is mostly driven by small and medium businesses and the Libranos are targetting them. I guess that’s how he intends to help the “middle class” as he says, owners of small businesses that are the heart of our economy. The real tax loopholes benefit the multinationals and that’s where the big money is, in tax heavens or in foreign jurisdictions. That’s a well-known fact. Of course, Trudo will not hurt his donors, or even his own crooked foundation or trust funds. He needs money for his vacation trips and to give away to his “refugees”, here and across the world, when it’s not to convicted terrorists. Who else than the middle class can pay.

JOHN WILLIAMS suggestion does make some sense for the unfortunate situation we find ourselves in with supposed refugees, jihadists etc. What we surely don’t want is an Angela Merkel solution where you pay em off, ship em out, they sneak back in, (different name, ID etcetera and get another pay out, and another, and another and so on. Justin is striving to be Europe. He envisions himself a Globalist God, he is in fact the devil incarnate.

As for the tax facade…check out the cover photo. They surely are about to slip each other the tongue, and are obviously stroking each other’s dick as they speak about how they can screw the Canadian public out of money in order to pay for their insanity.

The MSM is actually the Left Stream Media or the Fake Stream Media, take your pick.

Israel does something roughly similar with illegal Eritreans (and similar), or offering third-country relocation.

It works on some. That’s great. But a significant percentage (the majority?) aren’t willing.

So it’s a PART of a solution, but only a PART. It would be a first step only.

Let us hope that professionals such as accountants, doctors and lawyers,who have a nasty tendency to be supporters of Junior and his army of takers, will learn something from this.

The best thing for Conservatives is for Trudeau to take his dog and pony show on the road.
Every time he attempts to answer tax related questions pertaining to small business and middle income earners, he fails miserably. Why? Because he has no experience in Canada Tax laws along with no experience in owning a business (let alone small business).
Not only can he not answer the questions he sounds like a dolt with his awkward attempts.
Just keep the sound bites and play them over and over again in the run up to the next election. No need to invent attack ads.

Michel Greenville, what do you mean by this statement of yours?, "What is being proposed are tougher regulations to close loopholes that were never meant to exist in the first place. (SAYS WHO?) I have been dealing with this exact issue for over 35 years. (WHAT, ARE YOU, A LIFER AT REVENUE CANADA?) The Revenue Agency never, I repeat, never allowed the moves that are being prevented with the proposals. " (WHO DO YOU THINK DECIDES ON CHANGES? REVENUE CANADA IS TOLD WHAT TO DO. THEY DON’T ALLOW OR DISALLOW)

54. “It shall not be lawful for the House of Commons to adopt or pass any Vote, Resolution, Address, or Bill for the Appropriation of any Part of the Public Revenue, or of any Tax or Impost, to any Purpose that has not been first recommended to that House by Message of the Governor General in the Session in which such Vote, Resolution, Address, or Bill is proposed.” wiki
So what are you saying, Harper didn’t adjust the code legally?

As far as paying to send ’refugee’s’ packing, I mean returning them with enticements, you could crowd fund for that easily. Canadians don’t want to be replaced.
It would only work if we stopped the incoming, otherwise we could end up with a revolving door. What are the chances of that in Sharia Canada.
commented 2017-09-14 01:22:34 -0400
I would think its more compassionate to accept for a limited time a refugee or returning ISIS fighter, god forbid, with food and shelter for a time. We can then organize a modest payout for them to get settled and perhaps start a business in a safe place in or near their birthplace/homeland where they have family and friends. While permanently placing them in who knows where Nova Scotia or Manitoba will cost us one hundred thousand dollars or more, is it not better to pay eight thousand for the tenacious few who make it to our borders to give them a better chance in the place from which they came rather than a lonely existence with a meager sum of money that will soon run out. Let those who really what to be here and have a passion for our freedom apply legally. Shame on Justin for playing politics and abandoning some well meaning immigrants.

We don’t have to worry. We don’t have any groups like the Muslim Brotherhood in Canada or ‘horrors’ in our government. Thank heaven for that eh.

Michael Greenville sorry but these are not loopholes and he is lying about the amounts. These taxes are presuming things about others, your wife doing your taxes with software does not make her a paid accountant , you are a fool.

Try explain that stuff to loophole expert MJ Greenville here below.
I suppose he is referring to kids that earn shares on the family farm which otherwise they would never be able to take over because farm wages in general are low. I suppose Greenville prefers to pay 25 bucks for a 10 lbs bag potato’s

Thanks for the post Krispy.

Once again, Ezra Levant is lying about the issue itself.
What is being proposed are tougher regulations to close loopholes that were never meant to exist in the first place. I have been dealing with this exact issue for over 35 years. The Revenue Agency never, I repeat, never allowed the moves that are being prevented with the proposals.

There are two kinds of critics of the proposals, those who are playing politics with it and those who want to continue to improperly misuse the Canadian tax law. Ezra Levant fits into one or both of those categories. If the rest of you have questions, please read the government’s 63-page discussion paper on the matter. Then, and only then, will you be qualified to comment on this matter. Otherwise, you are being used by one of the two kinds of critics I outlined above.

Ennyi! 😎

Krispy – Good catch on that statement from a tax accountant. I don’t think Tater Tot is lying about the tax structure , he honestly has no idea how it works – his family trust lawyers/accountants do all that yucky tax stuff – to him tax is like budgets – they take care of themselves, so there is no need for a sheltered detached trust fund brat to trouble himself with understanding the tax code or accounting basics – that’s for the little people he demeans as “complainers and cheats”.

I hope Tater tot’s olfactory senses are as dulled as his cognitive skills, that way he won’t smell the lighted torches and heating tar the “little people” are whizzing up for his next electoral bid.

I’d like to post a response I found on LinkedIn, an intelligently written rebuke to Trudeau’s tax changes.

Response to Justin Trudeau comments “I want to be clear: people who make $50,000 a yr should not pay higher taxes than people who make $250,000 a yr"

Published on September 8, 2017

To the Liberal Members of Parliament,

I recently read a Globe and Mail article reporting on the Liberal caucus meetings held in Kelowna. In the article the Prime Minister of Canada, and the leader of your party, was quoted as follows; “I want to be clear: people who make $50,000 a year should not pay higher taxes than people who make $250,000 a year Mr. Trudeau told his MP’s”. I have never been a politically active person but feel compelled to respond to this comment.

First of all, I am a tax partner at the largest independent accounting firm in the southern interior of British Columbia. For the last 25 years we have assisted small business owners and primarily owners of private corporations. As a result, I can speak from first hand knowledge and experience. We have thousands of clients and I can state that the situation the Prime Minister has described does not exist. It does not exist because under no scenario is this possible. If your leader is describing the proposed tax changes to you in this way then I strongly suggest your are being misled and lied to.

Let me make this as simple as possible. If a corporation has earned $250,000 then it will pay corporate tax in the amount of $37,500 at the low rate and as much as $67,500 at the high rate. Dividends are then distributed to shareholders whereby they pay tax again at the applicable marginal tax rate. An employee who earns $50,000 would pay approx. $8,000 in tax. Clearly, the situation as described by Justin Trudeau is false. There may be ways to mitigate the personal tax element but you can’t avoid the significant corporate tax bill. Once again, I emphasize that you are being misled by the Prime Minister of Canada.

Daniel Akbari – great interview, great insight. Ezra, pls bring that from behind the paywall so’s I can stuff it in Lefty faces!!

Daniel Pipes, always interesting. The Greeks got clever for a change, very interesting!

Morneau is refusing to release details to clarify the tax changes. That only means one thing, they’re as bad or worse than we fear! If they were even 10% clever, they’d have put this out in full, as Draft Legislation, so’s they could tweak or back-track without losing face! But they’re not even 10% clever!!

Rebel is a good term. American revolutionaries were termed rebels, but represented the majority. The rebels of the 1837 rebellion were obviously termed rebels, but represented the majority leading to democracy. Bolivar. Greeks against Ottomans. In my time, Lougheed against Papa Doc. Recently, Wall against Baby Doc. All representing the will of the people against an autocracy.

Yep…Rebel is a good term.
