Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole says wealthy Canadians must “pay their fair share” to aid the country’s economic recovery after the COVID-19 crisis subsides.
“I am especially worried about the growing divide between the richest, most-connected, and most politically powerful Canadians and everybody else,” the letter, obtained by the Star, read.
“(The) elites have done well these past few years. But things haven’t been going so well for the rest of us. Even before COVID-19 struck, half of Canadian families were $200 away from insolvency.”
According to O’Toole’s letter, Canada needs a plan that:
Creates “good-paying jobs” by “unleashing our private sector,” supports resource industries, and “rebuilds our manufacturing sector” — with O’Toole suggesting it’s “time for more Made in Canada.”
