Justin Trudeau has declared war on farm families — proposing tax changes that will punish small businesses. It’s part of Trudeau’s war on all entrepreneurs, but it will hit farmers the hardest and could make it financially impossible to hand farms down from one generation to the next.
Trudeau’s own family is all set up with a special trust fund — he inherited millions from his father, Pierre Trudeau, who inherited it from his father. Justin Trudeau has never had to work a day in his life. That’s what makes this especially galling — his wealth is unearned, and he dares to call farmers tax cheats. He actually used that word: cheater.
What will Trudeau's tax mean for your farm family? Is there anything we can do about it?
Well, I have a plan:
I’m hosting a series of town hall meetings in Alberta and Saskatchewan, to save the family farm.
We’ll have a number of guest speakers, including a tax expert, and I’m thrilled to announce that Gerry Ritz, the former Conservative agriculture minister, will be our keynote speaker at each of them.
We’ll have at least four meetings — hopefully one will be in a community near you.
And more to be announced soon!
2. A petition
We also want to get thousands of Canadians to sign our petition to Lawrence MacAulay, Trudeau’s Agriculture Minister, telling him to stop this disaster. MacAulay used to be a farmer himself — maybe he still remembers what it’s like to work around the clock before he joined the 35-hour-a-week set in Ottawa.
Please sign our petition by clicking below.
Admissions for our events are free, but we expect the cost of each meeting to be approximately $500, including the hall rental, the P.A. system and gas money — if you can help us cover that, please click here to chip in.
Sign the petition!
Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay must stop the family farm killing federal tax revisions.
