Excise Tax Act   carbon pricing to reduce the emissions. They introduced it to fund their excessive spending habits. I believe that Canadians are willing to pay their fair share of taxes. However, the government is demanding so much money from hard-working Canadians that soon there will not be any

Jim EglinskiConservative

Excise Tax Act   the Prime Minister's claim that the government's new price on carbon will be revenue neutral? It is absolutely shameful that he should have the nerve to try to make the public believe this. He must always be looking for new ways to fill government coffers on the backs of hard-working

Jacques GourdeConservative

Carbon Pricing   that the Minister of Environment had the audacity to say that their plan was credible and fair for all Canadians. How is nickel and diming hard-working Canadians fair? How is it fair to do it without disclosing the actual costs associated with this new mandatory tax? As the only party

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, our government always has supported and always will support hard-working Canadian entrepreneurs and small business owners. This week we announced that we are delivering on our commitment to reduce the small business tax rate to 9%, and that small businesses would

Ethics   it, because we know that is the best way to grow the economy. When we invest in the middle class, when we support the middle class, whether it is small businesses, single moms, or hard-working Canadians from coast to coast to coast, we know that the entire economy benefits. We are going

Justin TrudeauLiberal

Ethics  Mr. Speaker, after months of calling hard-working Canadians tax cheats, we now know that the Minister of Finance found a loophole and has all of his Morneau Shepell shares—by the way, about $40 million worth of them—tucked away for a rainy day in a numbered company in Alberta

Business of Supply   years of that and it is enough. I am here to represent people who have been written off the political and economic map of this nation and they are being written off by the Liberal finance minister and his attack on the pensions of seniors and hard-working Canadians

Taxation   plans on doing that. This will not hurt those among us who own French villas, but it will mean higher taxes for those who are hard-working Canadians, such as single moms, first-time employees, new Canadians, and young workers. Will the minister finally table in this House

Rachael HarderConservative

Ethics  Mr. Speaker, the finance minister seems to have one set of rules for himself and a completely other set for everybody else. He made the choice to attack hard-working Canadian entrepreneurs while protecting his own personal wealth. He is the one that is hiding an offshore account

Lisa RaittConservative

Ethics  Mr. Speaker, the one thing we can always count on with the Liberals is that eventually they start acting like Liberals. The minister has travelled the country for months calling pizza shop owners and farmers tax cheats, accusing all kinds of hard-working Canadians of trying

Andrew ScheerConservative

Business of Supply   businesses, and a host of other hard-working Canadians, while on the other hand not touch the personal fortunes of the member for Toronto Centre and the Prime Minister.

Cheryl GallantConservative

Business of Supply  . Calling hard-working Canadians tax cheats is shameful, and they were really shocked at the government taking that approach. They also said that the government needed to slow the process down. The number one thing that every Liberal member of Parliament heard regarding their so-called

Mark WarawaConservative

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, the problem is that nobody believes them. They have lost all credibility on this file. It took them over a month to walk this back. It was only after they were caught and only after the outrage expressed by thousands of hard-working Canadians that they pulled

Andrew ScheerConservative

Taxation   this, and then they even tried to blame public servants, but the finance minister's own officials told committee members over a month ago that they were going to do this. Why is it that whenever hard-working Canadians look behind them, they see the Prime Minister trying to take more and more

Finance committee   instrument for, perhaps, a targeted problem. Our concern is that it would remove the incentive for hard-working Canadians to take risks, to build companies, to create jobs. It feels like a solution looking for a problem that doesn't really exist. We submitted a letter to Minister Morneau
