CANADIAN TAXPAYERS FEDERATION – Federal political parties have taken subsidies, from an emergency program, that was intended to help struggling Canadian businesses with the pandemic shutdown
Did you know that federal political parties have been quietly bilking even more money from taxpayers than they usually do?
It’s true. Since March, the Liberals have taken $850,000, the Conservatives $716,000, and the NDP $265,000 in additional subsidies – all from an emergency program that was intended to help struggling Canadian businesses with the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.
It’s bad enough that political parties are massively subsidized in normal times with huge tax credits and reimbursements. In fact, since 2016 federal parties have received more than $200 MILLION in taxpayer subsidies!
It’s outrageous, and it has to stop now – and the first step is to pay back this wage subsidy.
There is some good news. All of the Conservative Party leadership candidates have come out against parties taking the subsidy. And it’s because Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) supporters like you put their feet to the fire.
But we need you to send a message directly to all the party leaders.
Can you take a minute to send an email telling politicians to do the right thing and pay back the wage subsidy? Here are their email addresses:
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau: email@example.com
- Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer: firstname.lastname@example.org
- NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh: email@example.com
- Green Leader Elizabeth May: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also sign our petition and please share it with your contacts.
Thanks for everything you do ...
