Show Notes

Taxpayers pay about $1.2 billion per year for the CBC. That amount could instead pay the
salaries of more than 13,000 nurses. It could cover the grocery bills for 100,000 families. It’s
time to defund the CBC.

Come on prime minister, you’ve had enough alcohol taxes


Taxes already account for about half of the price of beer, 65 per cent of the price of wine and
more than three quarters of the price of spirits. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is rubbing
margarita salt in the wound by using high inflation to binge on higher alcohol taxes in 2023.

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?
