Internet Tax Idea Rejected

Canada’s Minister of Heritage, Melanie Joly.

(OTTAWA, ON) – The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is applauding Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly for rejecting the Heritage Committee’s recommendation to impose a new internet tax on Canadians.

“A new internet tax is a terrible idea, and would make the internet less affordable for Canadians,” said CTF federal director Aaron Wudrick. “Even worse would be using the revenue to create a new corporate welfare slush fund for the government to subsidize their favourite media outlets.”

The CTF has previously noted that taxpayers are already forced to spend billions subsidizing cultural industries, and the best way forward is fewer subsidies, not more.
