#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

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.
