|Harper and Alexander|
If Conservatives are as fiscally intelligent as they claim to be, it would be obvious that purchasing power and not just net income must also be considered. I would challenge this Candidate to live on the social assistance or minimum wage of his province and see how much of a challenge it can be to acquire the essentials. Yes Mr. Alexander for the most part we do not have people starving in the streets, though we do have many that go hungry. In a country as rich as Canada, it's a national disgrace.
If the money that Stephen Harper wants to spend on giving tax cuts to profitable corporations was instead spent on addressing the root causes of poverty. Then, maybe we really could eliminate poverty in Canada.
No policy your party has presented so far will help people living below the poverty line. News flash low income families rarely have the money to put their kids in organized sports or join fitness clubs. And I can guarantee you they do not have enough money to max out their TFSA (assuming they have one) at the current limit let alone this mystical increase that will supposedly happen 5 years from now.
It has always been amazing to me how Fat Cats can convince the mice to vote for them but it happens time and time again
