Liberal Party said that Andrew Scheer’s small businesses changes proposed today are a tax cut for the 1 percent and 83 percent of tax cut will go to the wealthiest 1 percent.
The Party in Sudbury, Ontario announced that a re-elected Liberal government will protect 25 per cent of Canada’s land and 25 per cent of Canada’s oceans by 2025, as well as give every kid in Canada the chance to learn to camp.
Canada has the longest coastline in the world, one-fifth of the world’s fresh water, and vast and wild forests — but climate change puts them all at risk. It’s more important than ever to protect the natural landscape we know and love. At the same time, Canadians of all ages should have the chance to enjoy our natural wonders and learn more about our country.
“We have listened to the courageous voices of young people who are demanding that their governments take bold action to protect our nature for future generations,” said Leader of the Liberal Party, Justin Trudeau. “And we know that we raise environmental champions by helping the next generation experience Canada’s natural beauty firsthand.”
“Andrew Scheer’s plan is a tax cut for the 1 percent. Canadians have seen what Conservatives politicians do. Andrew Scheer will cut taxes for the wealthy and cut services for everyone else.” Said Liberal candidate for Mississauga—Malton, Navdeep Bains.
When Andrew Scheer says he wants to help small businesses, he’s only offering a tax cut for the 1 percent. In fact, 83 percent of the benefit he is promising today will go to the top 1 percent of earners in the country. The vast majority of small, private businesses will not be impacted and will not benefit from Andrew Scheer’s tax cut for the wealthy. Almost all of the income Andrew Scheer wants to now exempt from taxes went to the top 1 percent of Canadians.
“Conservatives want to take us backward, and make pollution free again. This isn’t an exaggeration – they’ve told Canadians that’s what they’ll do.”
The party also revealed “Plastics & Paris – Two Questions for Andrew Scheer in Montreal”
Here are two questions for Andrew Scheer in Montreal, about things he hasn’t told Quebeckers what he’ll do:
Single-use Plastics Ban – Canadians know first-hand the impacts of plastic pollution. Conservatives have refused to commit to keep the ban. Will Scheer admit he’ll reverse it?
Paris Climate Accord – Scheer’s already said Conservatives won’t meet the Paris targets. He should be straight with Canadians and admit he’ll pull Canada out of Paris Climate Accord.
Harper pulled Canada out of the Kyoto Accord, but didn’t campaign on it. Scheer should be honest about the damage he’d do to the environment and climate before Quebeckers vote in October.
