Federal: Repeal the Tax Escalator

Federal

To Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau:


Your government has implemented a “tax escalator” that will automatically increase taxes on beer, wine and spirits each year.

Taxes already make up nearly half of the price of beer, over 60% of the price of wine and 80% of the price of spirits.

Further, automatic tax hikes are undemocratic, lack transparency and are completely unfair to Canadians.

When governments raise taxes, they must be open and accountable about doing so. Hiding tax hikes is not acceptable and is an evasion of political responsibility.

We the undersigned call on your government to repeal the tax escalator on beer, wine and spirits.

 

You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
