Deep Dive – Federal Greens Raise Destructive Death Taxes 6:51

Waste Watch – Quebec Bills Taxpayers to Lobby Itself 18:56

The Quebec government gave $30,000 to a lobby group to produce a study to lobby the government. It’s bad enough when governments raise taxes. It’s even worse when the government makes taxpayers pay for lobbyists to tell the government to raise taxes. Our Quebec Director Renaud Brossard has the full story.
