Kenney’s tax proposals a gift to the rich – CUPE

May 8, 2018

 

Jason Kenney’s proposal to bring back a flat tax is a gift to Albertans making high salaries, but it won’t put a dime into the pockets of regular Alberta families, said CUPE Alberta President Marle Roberts today.

On the weekend, delegates to the United Conservative Party voted to return to a flat tax, meaning all Albertans would pay the same rate of tax, regardless of income.

“Jason Kenney wants to give away almost $700 million to people who earn over $300,000 per year,” said Roberts. “Meanwhile giving nothing to regular families except cutbacks to health, education, and other important services.”

“Albertans have been very clear that the richest Albertans need to pay more taxes to pay for the services we all need,” said Roberts. “Jason Kenney is on the side of the rich, we need politicians that look out for the rest of us.”
