Urge Prime Minister Trudeau & His Cabinet To Close The Stephen Harper Loopholes That Cost Canada More Than $200 Billion A Year In Lost Revenue For Health Care, Infrastructure, Post Secondary Education And Other Necessary Services!
A Call-Out from Niagara At Large publisher Doug Draper
Posted March 13th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
An independent, cross-Canada advocacy organization called Leadnow has posted an online petition that Niagara At Large is reposting here for your consideration.
The petition calls on the new Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to plug the Harper era loopholes that allow Canada’s richest individuals and corporations to avoid paying taxes in this country, and Niagara At Large is joining Leadnow in urging all Canadians to sign it before the government tables its first budget this coming March 22nd.
Niagara At Large also urges you to send your own email message to the federal government and the Member of Parliament in your riding (whose name you can Google for countact information) and let them know that the richest among us should be made to pay their fair share into keeping Canada a great country for everyone who lives here.
Tell Prime Minister Trudeau and representatives of his government that this first budget and first year of their mandate to govern may be the best chance in a generation to plug the holes that allow more than $200 billion a year to fly off to tax havens in other parts of the world – billions that could be used to wipe out Canada’s deficit and pay for services and programs that ensure health and prosperity for Canadians for many decades to come.

We are also including a link here for a piece Niagara At Large posted this March 11th, featuring a letter Gary King, a Niagara, Ontario resident from Welland, wrote to Federal Minister of Finance Bill Morneau and Minister of Revenue Diane Lebouthillier, urging them to take action to stop the millionaire and billionaire taxdodgers.
