The NDP are suggesting a 1% value added tax but prior to the last election the NDP promised that its platform for re-election would be implemented without any tax increases. It continues to assert that this promise is being kept. http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Politics/2012/11/13/20354106.html They have however, put forward a discussion paper prepared by Olivia Chow’s office through a Commons committee which would allow municipalities to impose a 1% value-added sales tax. Olivia Chow has been front and centre in Toronto recently talking about Toronto and infrastructure so I expect Olivia Chow to take a run at the Toronto Mayor’s office in 2014. Also, if she quits as an MP before the next election she stands to benefit, pension wise. http://ca.finance.yahoo.com/news/flaherty-rejects-demands-pension-changes-hived-off-budget-144453292.html Current members of Parliament could easily escape pension changes announced Thursday that will see MPs pay a lot more into their pensions and wait longer to collect them. All they have to do is not run in the next election, set for 2015.
