“given that the budget:
(a) adds over half a trillion dollars in new debt that can only be paid through higher job-killing taxes;
(b) contains over $100 billion for a re-election fund while doing nothing to secure the long-term prosperity of Canadians; and
(c) fails to rule out the introduction of capital gains taxes on the principal residences of Canadians, currently being studied by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, as a way to pay for the government’s spending;
the House demand that the Liberal government’s budget be revised in order to focus on accelerating the vaccination plan to end the dangerous third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and policies that will create jobs and stimulate economic growth.".
