FLASHBACK: Harper warned Canadians about Liberal Party taxing Netflix — back in August 2015

StaffRebel Columnist

Remember when Stephen Harper was mocked all over the media for saying The Liberals would introduce a Netflix tax?

As Brian Lilley reported, Liberals are pushing for the HST, the sales tax to be applied to Netflix and other foreign streaming services, like Google Play or Apple.

It's crazy to look back on Harper's warning and see just how accurate he was. Watch the video and see for yourself.

SOUND OFF in the comments: do you think Canada will be getting a Netflix tax?

Stephen Harper was the best PM in my life time, and the empty headed trust fund brat is the worst. Actually he’s tied with his old man. Pierre was at least intelligent, and liked to talk circles around the press, but his offspring is a real dunce.

Cathy said, " … not to mention not being able to save even $20 per month"

What is this term you use, “save”? What does that mean?

Do I ever miss Harper as PM. We had real leadership then. Now all we have is an idiot as PM and his gaggle of thieves taking all they can from the tax payer. But I guess this is what 39% of the population wanted … to be bent over and humped.

I miss having Stephen Harper as our prime minister, a decent and dedicated PM who cared about Canada. Now look what we’ve got. The cost of living is only affordable to people earning at least $100,000 per year. This is not the majority of Canadians. Only unionized workers make this much money and a whole lot more. Everyone else is living in poverty and every month has to decide whether to pay their rent, or hydro (to that lying thieving bitch Wynne) or buy some edible $30 per pound meat instead of the canned garbage meat and pet food that they can usually only afford for their meals, not to mention not being able to save even $20 per month. Every liberal voter should have some sort of an identifying mark on them so that everyone could deal with them in their own way and shame them so bad so they wouldn’t dare come out in public ever again.

I imagine the trolls scoffed , and now they will probably blame him if the libs implement the tax.
How did we go from a smart decent leader to an imbecile with little class.

The Liberal credo; If it moves kill it, If it stays in position Tax it. The Robber Barons are taxing my patience.
