Canadians for Tax Fairness, a public interest advocacy group, asked: Morneau’s mini-budget provides billions in tax breaks to corporations, but will they even work? See http://www.taxfairness.ca/en/news/morneau’s-mini-budget-provides-billions-tax-breaks-corporations-will-they-even-work. On one hand, the dubious nature of what essentially is corporate welfare is not new. On another, anti-tax pressure groups like the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Fraser Institute want more — more corporate tax breaks, more corporate tax cuts. To them, like in the eyes of the like of former prime minister Stephen Harper or current Ontario Premier Doug Ford, no tax is good.
