Something is wrong here.

This year Canadian corporations are getting a 6 billion dollar tax break. Every year corporations get a greater and greater share of our countries overall wealth, while the working people face higher costs and higher taxes.

If corporations paid their fare share of taxes, we would easily be able to pay for the new Port Mann Bridge, and the Evergreen Line, and the UBC extension, and so on.

Instead we are charging tolls and raising taxes on the middle class to finance major infrastructure projects.

This is just another transfer of wealth from the working people to the very rich.
