Mr. Speaker, the Liberal government needs to be condemned for its relentless attack on the cornerstone of our society, Canadian families.
Our current tax system discriminates against families who choose to have one parent stay at home.
A one income family earning $60,000 pays $7,000 more in taxes each year than a family with the same total income but both parents in the workforce.
Despite the fact that the majority of parents prefer family care to day care, one parent cannot stay at home because of the huge tax hit they face.
My private member's motion, M-369, addresses this very issue and calls for taxation fairness for families. Clearly, Liberals do not understand taxation fairness. They have raised taxes 37 times and hiked payroll taxes, all contributing to a $3,000 annual pay cut for the average family.
By contrast, Reform policies are family friendly. Our priority is the well-being of families, not larger tax grabs.
