Thank you for the question.
To answer your question, I will provide two contextualizations.
The first one concerns the measure being proposed. As my colleague Trevor McGowan explained about Part I of the bill, the old surtax on the profits of tobacco manufacturers in Canada is withdrawn.
In addition, an adjustment is made with respect to the federal excise tax. Given that this adjustment is made on the basis of the revenues that the surtax was seeking at its peak in the early 2000s, there is a little bit of additional revenue coming from it. According to the budget, this adjustment amounts to $55 million, as of March 23, 2017. If we put it in context, the federal government will collect about $3.2 billion a year on taxation on tobacco alone.
