#91 BIG ISSUES- GOVERNMENT DEBT

#91 BIG ISSUES- GOVERNMENT DEBT

The federal government is more than $1 trillion in debt. It’s borrowing $424 million every day.  That means that each Canadian is on the hook for about $30,000 in federal government debt alone. If politicians don’t save money that will have to come from Canadians through taxes today, taxes tomorrow or inflation.  Our Federal Director Franco Terrazzano and our B.C. Director Kris Sims broke down what each party plans to do about the debt, and what they found may surprise you. Check out the CANADIAN TAXPAYERS STORE!   Like this show?

#90 BIG ISSUES- FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Canadians place a high value on their freedom of speech, but the way we use that freedom could be changing depending on the outcome of the federal election. We wanted to make it easy for the average Canadian to make sense of the issue, so our interim Ontario Director Jay Goldberg and our Prairie Director Todd MacKay put their heads together for this podcast. They broke down the whole issue, and how much each party’s plan might cost the country. Check out the CANADIAN TAXPAYERS STORE!   Like this show? Subscribe and give us 5-stars!

#89 BIG ISSUE- GUN BANS

The average Canadian probably thinks of Rambo when they hear the term “military-style assault rifle.” Politicians are counting on that confusion, and the media isn’t clearing things up. But if Canadians are going to cut through the political spin, they’re going to need to hear from experts and they need to compare what politicians are saying to those facts. We’re making it easy. Our B.C. Director Kris Sims and Prairie Director Todd MacKay broke down the whole issue, and how much each party’s plan might cost the country.

#87 BIG ISSUES- HOME EQUITY TAX

#87 BIG ISSUES- HOME EQUITY TAX

Canadians have always had a tax exemption when they sell their primary residence and politicians swear they’ll never impose a home equity tax. So, what’s the problem? More than 100,000 taxpayers have signed our PETITION opposing a home equity tax because they’re not sure they can trust politicians. And when we dug into the details, there’s good reason for that skepticism. Check out the CANADIAN TAXPAYERS STORE!   Like this show? Subscribe and give us 5-stars!
