Mr. Speaker, there have been in certain areas increases in taxes, increases in tax revenues. The Reform Party has opposed these. The Reform Party has gone on the web and said "these are the tax increases brought in by the federal government that we oppose".
The Reform Party opposed the elimination of the tax advantages for family trusts. It opposed the elimination of the preferential rate for large corporations. It opposed the measures that were taken to combat the underground economy. It opposed the elimination of the $100,000 lifetime capital gains tax exemption.
These are the tax increases Reformers opposed because they hurt their friends. Heaven help them if they had to help poor or middle income Canadians.
