Companies with links to tax havens should not receive public funds.
The Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) has estimated that more than $25 billion in tax money is taken from Canada every year because of tax havens. Meanwhile, millions of hard working Canadians pay their taxes on time and in full. Trudeau needs to stop letting corporations get away without paying their FAIR SHARE!
In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, Trudeau continues to allow companies that use tax havens to access federal government emergency assistance programs. Trudeau needs to stop using taxpayers’ money for corporate BAILOUTS and corporate WELFARE.
The Trudeau government should follow the example of France, Denmark and Poland by ensuring that public funds used to help our businesses do not end up in the hands of those who use tax havens to avoid paying their fair share.
Those resources should be spent on affordable housing, job creation, clean energy, health care, education, seniors, students, families and so many other initiatives to make Canadians’ lives better.
Join me to call on Trudeau to STOP big corporations from PROFITEERING and start paying their FAIR SHARE!
