In your view, have recent federal tax changes contributed to economic resilience and powerful competition in Canada?

If ANYONE thinks that the Liberals have not managed the economy reasonably well, just think back what the Conservatives did, or did not do, for 9 (?) years under Harper !? .....and he claims he’s an economist. Balancing a national budget does NOT qualify anyone for the Nobel prize in economics. All you have to do is cut, cut, cut programs, even those considered essential for all demographics, but NOT those for the corporate sector, e.g. the oil industry.

I read somewhere that Canadian now pay more in tax than they do on living expenses.  That is not good.

It truly matters little who is in Ottawa lately. Canada became a member of
organizations standing above individual countries dictating policies in the name of globalization and world elites. Just consider how many people own most of world wealth today. Most of the so called developed countries
have been gradually loosing their middle class and acquiring a new social class of working poor.

Good grief, what a question! The only change the federal tax changes have brought is reduced lifestyle and increased burden for John and Jane Canadian-Taxpayer. Again.
This is what happens when a country blindly elects an entitled, spoiled rich kid, who has never had to work for anything in his life, riding on his dad’s coat-tails. Pierre would be appalled if he knew what his son was doing.

I am in agreement with Jim. My comment was going to be “Is this a serious question?” I will stand by it.

Is this question a joke of some kind? Recent changes are a disaster for all Canadians. Those without any economics education just don’t realize it yet.

As it is a liberal government in charge nothing they do is for your average Canadian. Elitist only take care of Elitists. We are still living in Upper and Lower Canada when it comes to this government.
