Oral Questions

The future of our economy, our prosperity and our society — indeed, the future of every citizen — requires us to set ambitious goals, and to get on with connecting all Canadians for the 21st century.

Just today, the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage in the House of Commons recommended a 5 per cent tax on broadband distribution to help fund Canada's media industries. In the election campaign, the government committed not to impose a Netflix tax and declared that this proposal is nonsense. Taxpayers already received bad news in the last budget regarding tax increases. We can think of the automatic tax increases on alcohol that we discussed in the last days in the Senate. I agree with the CRTC's view that connecting all Canadians coast to coast to coast is essential for the prosperity an...”
