Don't Let America Drag Us Into Its Cesspool In the Name of Competitiveness
A disturbing report from Price Waterhouse Coopers prepared on behalf of the Business Council of Canada (the usual suspects) warns that the Trump tax cuts could put 635-thousand Canadian jobs at risk and cause a 4.9 per cent drop in Canada's GDP.
The dodgy narrative is that, unless Canada follows suit, cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy, it's economic Armageddon for Canada.
It's time to tell PwC and the Business Council to shove it straight up their fat arses. That vaunted tax cut they clearly want Canada to emulate is adding somewhere between 1 to 1.5-trillion dollars in deficit that working class Americans are going to have to shoulder.
If the only way to protect Canada's deeply integrated economy is by waging class warfare on the Canadian people as the United States has done then it's time we became less integrated and quickly. If we have to take a hit so be it but let's get something worthwhile out of it for the sacrifice starting with more independence and a whole lot less Trump toadyism.
It's time to see the big accounting houses, PwC, KPMG, etc. and their corporate clients for what they are - shake down artists.
