Enough is Enough | May 26, 2022

Brace yourself for another Liberal tax.

Today’s report from the Parliamentary Budget Officer confirms that the Liberals’ newly proposed tax will result in over $2.8 billion in lost sales over the next 5 years – a 15 per cent reduction – that will devastate Canada’s car manufacturing sector, boating sector, and aerospace sector.

As the Canadian economy emerges from the pandemic and businesses struggle to recover from the downturn, only the Liberals would think imposing new taxes on businesses that create and maintain good manufacturing jobs is the right path forward.

This new tax will result in lost jobs, foregone economic opportunity, and a reduction in capital investment at a time when we can least afford it. Worse, the Liberals didn’t even want to know what impact this would have on Canadians, as department officials revealed they weren’t even asked to conduct an impact assessment.

Enough is enough. As Canadians are dealing with record-high inflation and a cost-of-living crisis, the last thing they need is another tax that will drive manufacturing jobs, opportunities, and investments away.

Reach out to the Windsor MP’s and let them know that you had enough of the taxes!
