larry's latest column is breathtakingly silly. He seems to think that high Canadian wage earners don't pay enough tax. I guess he doesn't realize that high income earners already pay a large proportion of all income tax. (top 10% of wage erners pay 40% of all income tax) He doesn't understand that high income earners are very mobile. Iguess liberal larry has decided his beloved grits are dead and now is the time to become a full blown socialist.
One of the big successes of the Conservatives has been their demonization of taxation.
Old-time Progressive Conservatives weren’t so inclined, but the Stephen Harper breed learned the art from Republicans south of the border. The neo-cons’ anti-tax campaign spooked the opposition parties. When Michael Ignatieff once hinted he might raise the GST, they practically billy-clubbed him to death.
