Ottawa, ON – The Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, issued the following statement on the Trudeau Liberals defying the will of Parliament and unilaterally cancelling the implementation of a law that would lower taxes for small businesses:

“Justin Trudeau is continuing his war on Canadian small business, refusing to implement a tax reduction for small business that was passed in Parliament. In the past, the Prime Minister called these hardworking business owners tax cheats and used this outrageous attack to justify a massive tax hike on the small business community. 

“When the Prime Minister decides to raise your taxes, he’ll go to extraordinary and unprecedented lengths to ignore Parliament and the law, all in the pursuit of sending your tax dollars to Ottawa. The constant corruption, delays, and cover-ups in Ottawa continue even after Parliament ends. It’s shameful and Canadians deserve better.

“Small businesses can’t afford more of the same from the Liberal government. That’s why Canada’s Conservatives have a five-point plan to secure Canada’s future and support Canadian small businesses. 

“If you’re not worried about the success of our small businesses and creating jobs, you have three parties to choose from. If you are, you only have one – Canada’s Conservatives.”
