Hang on to your wallets! Liberals call for review of ENTIRE tax system - including whether to raise GST

Brian LilleyArchive

Call me a nervous nelly if you want but when Liberals start talking about taxes, I get nervous

Like when Wayne Easter the chair of the House of Commons finance committee says every part of the tax system, including whether to raise or lower the GST should be considered, well, let’s just say I’m holding my wallet tighter.

In an interview with The Globe and Mail, Easter said the tax system is too complex and should be simplified. I can agree with that.

But when he then calls for a review, my fear becomes that it will be an excuse to file new reports calling for higher taxes – specifically, the GST.

The Liberals didn’t campaign on raising the hated goods and services tax, but as I show in this video, the fact is they have a long record of wanting it raised back up after Harper brought it down.

Go around the cabinet table and you find person after person who in the past has advocated a hike to the GST, so I expect it is coming.

We’ve already seen income taxes rise for top earners and will soon see payroll taxes rise, or at least not drop as they were scheduled to with the changes to EI premiums. The Liberals are also talking about a carbon tax nationally.

So when they say “review the tax system”, an idea I support, I have to believe that what these guys really want to do is find ways to get more money from my pocket and yours.

These are not the Liberals of the ‘90s that believed in balanced budgets and cutting taxes. These Liberals support much of what is in the far left Leap Manifesto, a document so radical that the NDP chose not to endorse the ideas during the last election.

Hold on to your wallets folks, the Liberals are ringing up big deficits and they need to find a way to get more money, from you.

The role of government is to spend tax money. Taxing work and consumption is NOT self destructive as long as REAL wealth continues to be created. Personally, I believe its more progressive to tax consumption over work. Problems start when government policies hinder wealth creation (such as the Liberal’s anti natural resource policies) and in order to maintain the tax base; raise taxes (either income or consumption). This only compounds the problem by reducing spending power thus killing the economy and round and round we go until we become Greece.
The liberals are being short sighted – creating REAL wealth is becoming more and more difficult as our economy shifts to (globally resourced) information and automation based goods and services (i.e away from (locally resourced) natural resource based goods and services).

Once again I would like to wish a heart-felt thank you to all those Canadians who voted in this Liberal government. I really do hope that you are satisfied with the end result – all 6.7 million of you. Now the other approximately 20 million Canadian voters (who voted for other parties or who did not vote at all) can sit back with our feet up and enjoy the hardship and suffering that is at our door. If I knew who you were, I would personally send you a thank-you note because you really do deserve one!

They are going to tax the hell out of us in order to fund their invasion of Islam. I’m praying that those who can will do what is right for our country!

Isn’t it wonderful how these bozos wrap themselves in the flag? Of course the only ones really entitled to wrap themselves in the flag are our soldiers ready to risk their lives to defend us.
I presume that the smiling jackass above is Wayne Easter. You should have the common decency to at least not smile while you prepare to rape every citizen of this country.

NDP Sucks just stated what I have been saying for years. People laughed at me when I said stop paying taxes. No one will listen. No one wants to listen.

Peter, sorry I have severe tendonitis and can’t raise my hand :)

I think that along with the imposed electoral reforms anticipated; this tax reform will be just as corrupt. Combined, our one party government really will be the envy of several world nations: Cuba, Venezuela, China, Turkmenistan, Saudi Arabia, ISIL, Viet Nam, etc…yep many will look at us a a true example of what democracy should be.
commented 2016-04-07 10:06:13 -0400
How many people here think that after the Liberals review the tax system that they will find ways to lower taxes for the people?

Show of hands!
commented 2016-04-07 09:13:41 -0400
Go ahead and raise all our taxes to the point where you bankrupt all honest hard working Canadians.
Once all Canadians are bankrupt, who the hell do you think will be paying the salaries of all the teachers, civil servants and politicians? It is true that many of these parasites (politicians) are millionaires and have no concept of what it is like to go without a meal, have no roof over their heads or cannot afford medical care.
The fact that they are rich does not give them the right to govern.
Can they not be impeached?

Thank God I live on the YS border! Yes Chretien lied about getting rid of the GST. I’d love to see a poll of how the idiots who voted Trudeau feel now. My guess they’d ssti

Get ready folks – Bernie Trudeau will be going after your bank accounts too – keep cash on the side.

Avoid debt and avoid spending.

The global economy is ready to tank and this retarded man-child Bernie Trudeau is getting ready to steal all that he can from the masses.

And you know what?? You deserve it Canada – you chose this camp counselor fucktard Trudeau over an economist.

Stupid begets stupid – enjoy the pillaging Canada. You asked for it – literally.

I’m an Easterner and some of my friends voted for Junior on the basis of their taxes getting lowered. They’re the kind of people who don’t do politics, so politics does them. Now they’re surprised taxes haven’t fallen and are even more surprised when I tell them they’re going to climb. I was paying attention during Chretien. They were not. These people don’t understand deficits or how interest payments works.

I miss Alberta and good oil prices. These people make my head hurt and I can only repair so much stupidity

Is there any legal way (I said LEGAL, people) to oust the Liberals before they bankrupt our country?

Rebellion in itself has a number of different meanings and is in fact quite close to another word that seems to be on everyone’s lips; Revolution. Defined meaning of Rebellion;
1.Refusal to accept some authority or code or convention. 2.An act or show of defiance toward an authority or established government. Defined meaning of Lawful;
1.Being within the law; allowed by law: lawful methods of dissent. (The lawful refusal to conform to the authority that is unjust) Under article 61 of Magna Carta 1215 (the founding document of our Constitution) we have a right to enter into lawful rebellion if we feel we are being governed unjustly. Contrary to common belief our Sovereign and her government are only there to govern us and not to rule us and this must be done within the constraint of our Common Law and the freedoms asserted to us by such Law, nothing can become law in this country if it falls outside of this simple constraint.
Article 61 shows quite clearly who really holds the power in this country, that being quite simply us the people; we have Sovereignty not any Parliament and nor can this be taken from us by any Parliament who claim to have taken the people’s Sovereignty. As defined above any act passed by a Parliament to remove the power the people possess, or to remove the power from the point of constraint we invested the power in, is invalid as it falls outside of the constraint laid down by Common/Constitutional Law.
This is a simple safeguard put in place to protect our freedoms under said law and to never allow such freedoms to be removed or diminished. So in reality any Act, Statute and subsequent law or legislation formed by these actions, that effects our freedoms asserted to us, is quite evidently unjust, invalid and most certainly illegal.
By invoking article 61 we are quite clearly stating that we feel we are being governed unjustly and after giving the head of state (Her Majesty) 40 day’s to correct this, if this is not corrected, then we can
simply enter into lawful rebellion and we do this under the full protection of our Constitutional Law.
Lawful rebellion allows quite simply for the following recourse;
1.Full refusal to pay any forms of Tax, Fines and any other forms of monies to support and/or benefit said unlawful governance of this country. 2.Full refusal to abide by any Law, Legislation or Statutory Instrument invalidly put in place by said unlawful governance that is in breech of the Constitutional safeguard. 3.To hinder in any way possible all actions of the treasonous government of this land, who have breeched the Constitutional safeguard; defined with no form of violence in anyway, just lawful hindrance under freedom asserted by Constitutional Law and Article 61. Above are listed the three main ways we can as a people rely upon article 61 and what this allows for. The British people were given over 700 years ago a Law to use as there recourse when faced with either a Parliamentary dictatorship, or a Sovereign trying to rule by Divine Right, which amounts to the same thing. We have a right, and a birth right at that, to be governed properly under our birth right law and no other and certainly not by laws introduced on the pretence of being British Law, when in fact all laws passed since 1973 have been European laws in the guise of British law. We have a right to freedom within our true law and no Parliament can remove this for they were not present in its implementation nor did it need any Parliament, or any Parliament involvement, this was quite simply a deal struck between the people and a Sovereign, a deal which can never be broken.

The above article from the Magna Carta is being floated as a means to fight back against idiot Trudeau. I have no idea of the status of the effort but it originated from the Alberta Independence Movement. I believe it would require a law suit.

The liberals are not stupid enough to raise the GST. Instead, they will just sneak in the carbon taxes in some other ways.
commented 2016-04-07 00:12:39 -0400
I’ve already gone underground…… Fuck em. But they will still get my tax $‘s . Between the fed carbon tax and the provincial carbon tax, and all the sin tax, cause I am a REAL sinner, but that is it. Until I fire up my still……..mmmmmmm white lightning. But hey everyone watch out for the pink flamingo manifesto. It works something like……….. It is proclaimed that you will have 10 pink flamingos on your lawn if not you will face a fine, and you know , just when you get your ornaments up…… Then it will be proclaimed that all pink flamingos be removed….. If not you will face yet another fine. Don’t go on holidays cause you never know when the proclamation will be called, oh ya all proclamations will be aired on CBCso stay tuned.

of fucking course they will raise taxes…don’t be stupid!
it’s what they do.

They have to pay for the new dominant race that they are importing into Canada. That is the main problem for the moment.

As they have killed the oil and coal industry, they will bring in a new clean air tax, based on the number of times the average human breaths in, during a twenty four hour period.

Next will be a tax on Bowel Movements, based on the average, per day,. This because of C02 emissions.

Expect an enormous tax on Dogs. The Governments new partners, the Muslims, hate dogs, so expect to get robbed with this one.
There was a video on the Tube showing Muslims killing a dog. If you should come across it I would advise you not to watch it, they start by crucifying it to a tree and then use boiling water and propane torches. These sub humans are truly the scum of the earth.

We can also expect a Tax levied toward the building of Mosque’s.

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. (an old WW1 song)

At the rate their going the economy will continue to tank and the only people that will be employed to pay taxes will be government employees…

The column is completely accurate. The Liberals have always wanted the GST to he at 7% or more. This will happen that is guaranteed. The Liberals will find new ways to tax people….likely tax our CO2 that we exhale. The Liberals are going to add 120million plus to the deficit and spend like drunken sailors on the unions CBC social programs refugees and Quebec/Ontario. We all will pay dearly for the tax and spend Liberals.

“The Liberals didn’t campaign on raising the hated goods and services tax ….Hold on to your wallets folks, the Liberals are ringing up big deficits and they need to find a way to get more money, from you.”

Here we go full tilt, the ride begins in earnest. Liberals do love raising taxes and they will, it has been proven so many times. They do seem to enjoy driving businesses out of the country and in general hurting the Canadian economy and thus Canadians, unless they are public sector employees of course (guaranteed raises to exceed any and all increases each year).

Am waiting for mortgage rates to increase to the 20+% as in Pierre’s reign of terror. It will be sweet music when the Liberals in Toronto and the GTA start screaming like banshees because of the higher federal taxes that they voted for hits them hard in their pocketbook along with Wynne’s provincial increases. I wonder what a 20+% mortgage payment is on a million dollar+ house where the vast majority of it financed is. No matter, it will be funny to behold, many will default on their mortgages as in Pierre’s day as well as making it impossible for the young blood that voted Liberal to purchase a home. One could call that poetic justice. The young that voted Liberal will learn the hard way as is deserved that there is no free ride contrary to what you were promised.

we already know that our tax money is used to buy our votes during elections, much of it is wasted on welfare bum native reserved that natives trash regularly, too much of it is wasted on man hating feminist programs, child tax credits to Quebec is another joke and the list goes on never mind all the other waste in the bloated government departments. the average person is going broke in our piss poor system. its time for a tax revolt.

Yup. Only in a socialists’ world is lowering taxes bad and raising taxes good. But then just about everything a socialists does is complete 180 degrees from common sense.

There’s no one else to tax, 77 billion had already left the country before the year was up, and that will be continuing into this year, with those who can packing up and leaving as well.

The first time I visited the U.K. they had just added a VAT tax That’s Value Added Tax Britain’s were outraged how dare a government put a 10 % VAT tax on everything. Well that was just the beginning the last time I checked the Value Added Tax (GST) is 17% and In Britain that tax is hidden in the cost of goods. The lieberals love nothing but taxing the people remember you getting what you voted for.
