Mr. Speaker, it is official. Quebec is going to put an end to an inequity that is hurting our entrepreneurs, in spite of Ottawa. The premier of Quebec said this morning, “All those who conduct business in Quebec have to pay their fair share of taxes...It is a matter of respect for our businesses here in Quebec.” Last week, it seems the Minister of Canadian Heritage saw the light and announced, after two years, that she intends to protect our distinct culture.
What about the Minister of Finance? Will he at least commit to protecting the competitiveness of our businesses before the next election?
