Conservative Finance Critic points out that people way below the poverty line pay tons of taxes.
In Question Period, Pierre Poilievre was criticizing Trudeau for having gotten rid of tons of tax breaks that helped low-income Canadians.
The Liberals cancelled programs that helped families afford public transit and sports for their kids.
In response to the criticism, Trudeau made the absurd claim that low-income families “don’t pay taxes.”
After Trudeau’s crazy remarks, Poilievre slammed Trudeau as a “millionaire trust fund baby” who was showing “appalling ignorance” for his claims about low-come families.
You can watch the exchange below:
“Wake up Prime Minister. Low income people do pay taxes: GST, gas taxes, payroll taxes, and even income taxes.”
