#53 Cut Off Governors General, Wealth Tax Will Backfire, and Montreal Buys Snow?

News at the Top – Cut Off Governors General The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has talked a lot about the expenses and pensions for retired governor generals. We even have a petition running calling on the federal government to scrap those benefits. Well, Ipsos Public Affairs did a poll, and it turn out most Canadians agree with us. Our B.C Director Kris Sims and Federal Director Aaron Wudrick talk about the results.

The Liberals have said they won’t be raising taxes to pay for all of it, while the NDP is calling on them to make “the rich pay for the recovery” with a wealth tax.   Our Ontario Director Jasmine Moulton and our Alberta Director Franco Terrazzano discuss that self-defeating idea.

Would Vancouver spend money to get more rain? Or Regina use taxpayer’s cash to get more wind? Well, at least one city in Canada would try something like that, with Montreal laying down $63,000 for snow in the middle of winter. Our Quebec Director Renaud Brossard talks about the head-scratching purchase with Prairie Director Todd MacKay.

During this election, politicians are trying to sell us on their affordability plans. So, our B.C. Director Kris Sims and our Federal Director Franco Terrazzano broke down what each party could do about Canada’s tax burden. Check out the CANADIAN TAXPAYERS STORE!   Like this show?
