For weeks I've been warning that there was something funny or fishy about the way Andrew Scheer and his Cons were attacking the Liberal government's plans to reform our tax system.
Warning that nobody should believe Scheer when he claimed he was trying to defend the poor rather than the rich.
And sure enough, Vice News has obtained copies of the Con's secret documents detailing how their MPs are to go after the government,
And they couldn't be more shocking.
For they are the work of shameless Con artists.
The Conservative Party is doubling down on its bombastic rhetoric around the Trudeau Liberals’ proposed tax changes, but a fact-check on their actual claims show that few of the opposition’s talking points are based in reality.
Included in the documents are slides from a powerpoint presentation prepared by finance critic Pierre Poilievre to Conservative MPs, detailing the changes and outlining the party’s tactics.
They would have to come from the grubby Con Pierre Poilievre.
The one who tried to poison our electoral system...
Who can't be trusted as far as you can spit, or in his case slobber.
And those talking points couldn't be more fraudulent.
The talking points encourage MPs to tailor their message to working-class voters, and to avoid getting bogged down in discussions about “wealthy family doctors.” But details in the powerpoint suggest that the Conservatives know these changes will primarily affect the rich, not the middle-class farmers they plan on courting.
They are stuffed like a turkey with one lie after the other, including this whopper.
The Conservatives have publicly contended, as their website puts it, that the changes amount to “a massive new tax hike that would hurt every single local business in the country.”
This might be the largest mistruth of all.
As the Conservatives seem to admit in their own internal documents, these changes impact on the most profitable companies that withdraw company profits back into their own personal bank accounts.
And they could only come from someone educated at the Harper School of the Big Lie.
And what makes it even worse, is that so many in our hapless MSM not only swallowed those lies hook, line, and sinker.
They allowed Poilievre to promote them hysterically as only that dickhead could...
And by failing to challenge their lies allowed the Cons to confuse and fool Canadians.
But at least now, some in the media are finally starting to see the light, and are acknowledging that the Liberals are right to close those gaping tax loopholes.
It’s time for the T4 taxpayers of the nation to rise up. With professionals rolling out sob stories of proposed changes cramping their ability to hide taxes through incorporation, the most influential group remains silent on the sidelines.
I’m referring to the vast majority of us: Millions of Canadians trapped by a single T4 remuneration slip that invites the Canada Revenue Agency to inflict maximum damage on our take home pay.
And recognizing that Justin Trudeau and his government are not just right but smart.
Let the Conservatives bleed their hearts out for the upper income class pocketing tax advantages. There are definitely small business votes swinging their way as a result.
But the Liberals have done the better electoral calculation. And they know there are a lot more votes to be won from the disadvantaged T4 nation.
By hyping this tax scam, just like he hyped the Khadr deal in all the wrong places and for all the wrong reasons, Andrew Scheer has made a big mistake.
And done his Cons great damage by poisoning his own brand...
And if we are smart we can help make that damage fatal, by giving the Cons a taste of their own
And bury Scheer and his shabby Harper Party once and for all.
Long before the next election...
