Federal: No New Inheritance Tax

To Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau:


Canada has not had an inheritance tax in place since it was wisely abolished by Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau in 1971.

Inheritance taxes create terrible disincentives by double-taxing wealth and punishing saving and investment.

Other countries, including Norway, Sweden and Australia have recognized this problem and abolished their inheritance taxes as well.

We the undersigned call on your government not to impose a new inheritance tax.

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.
