Cullen blasts Liberals on small business tax promises
Skeena Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen questioned the Liberals on their small business tax promises in Parliament yesterday.
Cullen – the NDP Deputy Finance Critic – said the Finance Minister Bill Morneau hasn’t full filled promises to cut that tax.
“He forgot he owned a luxury villa in France but, hey, what middle class Canadian hasn’t. He also forgot to tell us his vast wealth was not, in fact, held in a blind trust. And he only comes forward when he’s in a world of trouble,” said Cullen.
The Minister of International Trade François-Philippe Champagne said they promised to reduce the small business tax rate to 9 per cent from 11 per cent.
He committed to reaching that in 2019 yesterday in Parliament.
