Raise taxes in Canada, it is the only way.

One of the main things the Libs have to do is to claw back all the ridiculous tax breaks that both the previous liberals and Harperites instituted as part of their neo-lib, small gov’t, let’s gift the rich agenda. That means tax hikes across the board and not just for high earners. Dobbin is far too polite about it. But he does make a good point about dealing with tax havens etc that rob Canada of a lot of taxes. If this were coupled with a complete defunding of the military, massive taxation on Canada’s weapons industries, a substantive effort to get into green technologies across the board and the complete withdrawal of Bill C-51 then I “might” say that the libs under Trudeau II might actually be trying to change Canada for the better. Dobbin makes a good point that the Libs have gone after the low-hanging fruit up till now. Let’s see how far up the tree they are willing to climb.
