Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff stunned business leaders when he announced on Sunday that the Liberal Party would not carry out the planned cuts to corporate tax rates. (see story here)
Perrin Beatty, president of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce:
“The net impact would be to discourage investment, discourage competitiveness, and discourage job creation”
It would be a pretty safe guess that Iffy also stunned his Liberal caucus with this announcement as well. Although this “thinkers” conference was suppose to be all about listening to new ideas, Iffy and his backroom braniacs used it to spring new Liberal policy announcements.
Iffy had no intention of just listening no matter how many red Moleskine note books (see here) he filled.
