On last night's show, I reported on the Liberal Members of Parliament going public with their opposition to Justin Trudeau's plan to increase taxes on small businesses.
Trudeau's attempting to justify the tax increase by claiming "a large percentage of small businesses are actually just ways for wealthier Canadians to save on their taxes". Trudeau and his finance minister are both millionaires who inherited their wealth, and now they're making it more expensive for contractors, rural doctors, lawyers, and family farms to conduct business.
But even Liberal's MP's aren't buying Trudeau's talking point, including Wayne Easter the chair of the finance committee who's received an "unprecedented backlash" from his constituents. Julie Dabrusin (Toronto-Danforth) published a letter with three pages of concerns about the tax grab.
WATCH my video to see how this move fits in with the Liberals efforts to discourage private investment by shutting down resource development and implementing a carbon tax.
