Additional corporate tax breaks are NOT needed in a country that already has some of the lowest corporate taxes in the world. The Conservatives always help big corporations though, at the expense of regular people. They will raise taxes on the middle class while cutting them for the corporations and the rich.
Example: When they first formed the government they cut the GST. On the surface this looks like it's good for the poor but is it really? The GST is a consumptive tax. It doesn't get charged on necessities like food, things that poor people buy. But the rich save big time when they buy their cars, boats, atvs and all their other toys.
"Thanks, Harper!" yelled the banker as he sped off in his new 37 ft twin engine cabin cruiser.
The fact is if you are an immigrant or make less than $500,000/year family income you have no business voting Conservative. Harsh but true.
