An unapologetic Conservative Leader Stephen Harper says a Tory government would repeal the new Liberal cut for people in the lowest income tax rate if it wins government on Jan. 23.
Harper said, however, the Conservatives tax-relief measures, once they have all been rolled out, would leave Canadians better off than they would be under what the Liberals are offering.
“We will be doing our tax plan, not the Liberal tax plan,” he said, singling out the Tories?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢ promise to cut the GST to five per cent from seven per cent as the centrepiece of the plan that involves selected personal and business tax cuts.
“We can?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t do both. And our tax reduction will save a lot more money for Canadians than the Liberal plan.”
