A Snapshot Comparison of CampbellTax Cuts and Horgan’s Early Initiatives.

Who benefitted from the policies of our last Provincial Government’s tax cuts  ,and who is benefitting from the targeted policies of the  current bunch?

Below is a comparison of benefit based on a  Surrey family earning less than 45K per year. That salary/wage level was chosen because that’s the level below which 2001 tax cuts actually cost British Columbians money.

Admittedly, it’s a cherry picked thumbnail sketch – not a  comprehensive analysis. It does, however, clearly show how  flat tax cuts, constantly touted as a fiscal stimulant, merely re-distributes money upward, while programmes targeted at reducing financial burdens on the working /middle class  can make a big difference in their purchasing power.
