News at the Top – Political Parties Line Up at the Trough Multiple political parties are taking financial aid that’s meant for struggling Canadians. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is telling them to give the money back and you can help. Todd MacKay and Kris Sims Link: https://www.taxpayer.com/petitions/political-parties-must-repay-wage-subsidies Deep Dive – Toronto’s Multibillion Dollar Sky Park 5:08 While Toronto Mayor John Tory heads to the provincial and federal governments with his hands out for aid, the city is still moving ahead on a massively expensive park project, built in thin air. And he wants to send the bill to taxpayers across Canada.
