Scott Brison criticizes Conservative tax break for the wealthy

April 20, 2015 in Canada's House of Commons

Mr. Speaker,

Doubling the TFSA limit is just another Conservative tax break for the rich. Most middle-class families can’t make use of that extra limit.

In fact, very few middle class families have an extra $20,000 kicking around every year to invest in their TFSAs.

But wealthy Canadians can. In time, doubling the TFSA limit will give billions more to the wealthy.

Why are the Conservatives making middle class Canadians who are struggling pay for tax breaks for the rich?
