Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tops the Canadian Taxpayers Federation’s cheeky 2020 list

Article content

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation released their naughty and nice list for the year – and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tops their naughty list.

“Lying to Canadians and raising the cost of heating our homes is a surefire way to put you on the naughty list, and the Prime Minister accomplished it in spectacular fashion,” said Aaron Wudrick, CTF federal director. “Some politicians and bureaucrats managed to land on the beautiful list this year. So let’s hope that Trudeau aims for that in 2021.”

Trudeau promised not to increase taxes, but he tripled the carbon tax to $ 170 per ton by 2030 and also announced a second carbon tax.

Ontario Prime Minister Doug Ford made the naughty list for breaking an election promise and entrusting Ford Motor Company with the welfare of the company.

Politicians who made the nice list cut their own wages.

Bureaucrats who cut import taxes on masks and gloves to fight COVID-19 also made the lovely list.

“We spend all year holding politicians and bureaucrats to account, wasting taxpayers’ money and moving at a snail’s pace when they need to fix something, cutting costs,” said Franco Terrazzano, director of the CTF in Alberta.

“BC Prime Minister John Horgan put himself on the nice list this year for suspending his planned increase in his provincial carbon tax. We hope he goes all the way and scraps it soon!”

The naughty list includes Trudeau, Ford, politicians who raised their own wages, and town halls who wasted money.

The nice list includes Finance Canada bureaucrats, politicians cutting their own wages, and Saskatchewan Treasury Secretary Donna Harpauer for getting rid of tax hikes.
