TORONTO – Steven Del Duca was in Toronto to highlight Ontario’s Liberal plan to make our tax system fairer, asking the wealthiest people and the most profitable corporations to pay a little more so families can go from the front.
“The biggest fraud of the last election was the claim that Doug Ford would govern ‘for the people,'” Del Duca said. “Doug Ford talks a good game, but his decisions always benefit the super-rich and his conservative donors, usually at the expense of mom-and-pop shops and families struggling with the skyrocketing cost of living.”
“The Ontario Liberals will make a different choice. We will raise taxes on corporate billionaires and the wealthiest elites to make life more affordable for working people and their families,” Del Duca added.
Ontarians deserve a Premier, not a corporate puppet serving his Conservative donors and the wealthiest Ontarians. That’s why Ontario Liberals:
- Introduce a 1% surtax on corporate profits over $1 billion, while eliminating corporate taxes for small businesses for two years;
- Introduce a new tax bracket for the 0.2% of Ontarians with taxable income over $500,000 per year.
“If you are a nurse, teacher, PSW, renter, student, retiree, sick, on minimum wage or in a long-term care facility, Doug Ford is not for you. He’s against you,” Del Duca continued. “It’s time for a government to put people before corporate profits and make life more affordable for you. It’s the choice of June 2 – and the choice is yours.
