Parliamentary Bulletin - Spring 2015
The Conservative Government recently introduced its tenth budget. It is regrettable that Mr. Harper’s budget chose to benefit those Canadians who need it the least, rather than those who need it most. Instead of helping the middle class, this government’s priority is a $2 billion dollar income-splitting plan that benefits fewer than 15% of Canadian households, while the remaining 85% will shoulder the cost of a plan that will not benefit them or their families. What is more, the income splitting-plan excludes single parents.
