Tax increase can only help
To the Editor,
I feel compelled to write as I have heard so many people commenting on the provincial budget introduced Feb.19.
I am normally the first person to look for ways to reduce taxes, especially for the under privileged in society. However, I fail to see how a two per cent increase on those earning more than $150 thousand and a one per cent increase to big business is going to hurt them or the province.
As B.C.’s economy gets better, and provincial revenues increase, these specific tax increases should be the first to go.
Then the government can continue by reducing taxes even further to encourage our economy and allow businesses to take risks and hire British Columbians.
