Corporate Tax Cuts: Dionâ€™s Line in the Sand
Since becoming Liberal leader, Dion has consistently made noises about cutting corporate taxes. On Friday, he clearly and specifically committed to slash corporate taxes â€œdeeper than the Conservatives.â€ A Liberal strategist quoted in the Financial Post indicated that the plan is to outflank the Conservatives on the right regarding tax policy.
Also on Friday, the NDPâ€™s new finance critic, Thomas Mulcair, was officially sworn in as an MP. As his website points out, the federal NDP has a solid record of opposing across-the-board corporate tax cuts.
