Here's a news release I sent out today on the federal budget:
(May 2, 2006)The National Citizens Coalition says the Conservative government deserves credit for keeping its election promise to provide tax relief for Canadian families.
“The government as promised cut the GST, cut corporate taxes and provided other tax credits to Canadians,” says NCC vice president Gerry Nicholls. “This is good news for over-burdened taxpayers.”
However, the NCC vice president says he was disappointed the government did not go further in cutting income taxes.
“I hope if government surpluses continue to mount, the Conservatives will provide more income tax relief for Canadians,” says Nicholls.
Nicholls also praised the government for pumping more money into Canada’s military.
“For far too long, governments have under funded Canada’s military,” says Nicholls. “In this dangerous world, boosting our defence must be a priority.”
