This October, as my mailbox fills with rubbish from the Conservative candidate, I think back to a few years ago, when Stephen Harper decided to tax our income trusts. During the preceding election, when specifically asked he said “We won’t tax your income trusts.”
As many seniors and investors remember, we watched tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars disappear from our RRSPs, on November First 2006, when the Conservatives decided to ignore a campaign promise and destroy a very viable form of investment.
Stephen Harper is not honest when it comes to the intentions of his own party, so why would he be honest with respect to those of another party. In fact I can see his calculated disinformation campaign ramping up to full speed. Compare what he says to what published information from other parties say.
He says that the NDP will reinstate the Long Gun Registry. Really? I see nothing from the NDP that says they will, and statements that say they won’t.
He says that the NDP will cancel income splitting for seniors. Again I see only very clear statements that say they won’t.
Everything Harper says is untrue or a naked distortion.
