Tyee Poll: Which Proposal to End Tax Unfairness Do You Think Is Best?

The Tyee’s Legislative Bureau Chief Andrew MacLeod wrote about tax policies in Canada and what the different parties are proposing to make them fairer.

“There’s a real fundamental unfairness to so many parts of the tax system,” said Toby Sanger, the director of Canadians for Tax Fairness. “Tax fairness is important, because you want people to pay their taxes somewhat gladly.”

MacLeod’s report followed up on Tyee readers’ request for a deep look at issues of tax loopholes, fairness and inequality in Canada. Earlier this month, he wrote about the tax loopholes or “expenditures” in the Canadian tax system that cost billions of dollars, and how higher-income Canadians benefit the most from them.

There are various proposals for federal government action to address the unfairness in the Canadian tax system, ranging from closing tax loopholes to implementing an inheritance tax.

Which one do you think is best?
