Flat Taxes are starting to slowly come into vogue.

Perhaps they could do something like New Brunswick and start cutting down the number of brackets in order to eventually move into a full true flat tax.

I think of course Canada Wide Provincially as well as Federally this would be easiest way for people to swallow the pill, especially the left. Too bad more people wouldn't drink the kool-aid on taxes and well tax change.

Yes, people want lower, less and fewer taxes. However, anyone talks tax changes I think the left starts to worry and scream about how we are cutting to the bone.

That's shortsighted. The money used to pay those accountants will be spent elsewhere CREATING 55,000 jobs.

Hillier seems to be supportive of the idea based on the interview I just watched on Stephen Taylor's site. As for Klees, who knows? He has released so very little in the way of policy. It's not clear what Hudak's position is right now but I'm not sure that it matters right now to me ....... I have been extremely disappointed with the policy announcements he has made so far.


Ya, I saw that interview where Hillier was supportive of it. About Klees, I remember someone making the comment that they didn't know quite why he was running because he had no policies, website, or official announcement.

You know it's good satire when so many folks don't "get" it... :lol:

Right now my choice is between Klees and Elliot to lead the party.

There's a couple of transportation related issues which I'm waiting to see which way they'll vote before I cast my support behind any one candidate.

The ridiculous speed-limiter law placed on commercial vehicles and the recently passed LCV (two 53 foot trailers towed one behind one another) pilot project which is set to start across the 401 from the Quebec border through to Windsor.
There's some corruption as in bribes paid to the Ontario Lieberals on both of those issues.

I am PSYCHED to have a real leader for Ontario's Conservatives.

If the campaign has a theme of TAX SAVINGS, it will be no contest. Ontarians didn't "want" to re-elect Dalton in the last election. We all know why things turned out as they did.

Whomever the new leader is, should make it LOUD AND CLEAR that the existing structure of the school system will remain UNCHANGED. Just talk about funding for education and, of course.....

A FLAT TAX!!!!!!!! Yes!

No kidding - it's about time we had someone with the courage to actually act like a conservative. Let's just hope this isn't the typical leadership bid talk and they become moderates during the election.

The Toronto Star Endorsement still scares me.

If they bash her over the flat tax, I may consider voting for her.

That's definitely true. I'd like to see what Hudak has to say about a flat tax. So far, Elliot and Hillier are the only two candidates to support it.
