Conversation on the need for fair taxation continues!
More and more Canadians are speaking out in favour of fair taxation. According to a new poll conducted for the Broadbent Institute, a clear majority support higher taxes to reduce income inequality http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/story/2012/04/10/pol-broadbent-poll.html. In Ontario, a NDP proposal to increase the marginal tax rate for individuals earning over $500,000 per year by 2% is being considered by the governing Liberal Party. The Toronto Star is also encouraging a serious discussion on fair taxation in this editorial: http://www.thestar.com/opinion/editorials/article/1158784–broadbent-poll-uncovers-public-desire-to-close-inequality-gap. Finally, in addition to Doctors for Fair Taxation and Lawyers for Fair Taxation, we now welcome Clergy for Fair Taxation http://www.catholicregister.org/news/canada/item/14252-clergy-seek-higher-taxes-%E2%80%94-for-themselve.
