Hard on the heels of the federal budget, Canadians for Tax Fairness are launching a new book on tax policy.
It promotes rebuilding our social programs, reduction of the income gap between rich and poor, restoration of environmental responsibility and revitalization of our economy.
Contributing author Dennis Howlett will present The Great Revenue Robbery at Laughing Oyster Bookshop on April 9 at 6 p.m.
Describing this book, author and journalist Linda McQuaig writes, “Canadians are waking up to the simple truth that taxes are the price we pay for civilization, and that scrimping on taxes means scrimping on civilization,”
John Christensen from the Tax Justice Network says, “The Great Revenue Robbery is a rallying cry for a just society.”
Howlett, executive director of Canadians for Tax Fairness, is one of 10 contributing authors travelling the country throughout April to bring the conversation on tax fairness to Canadian communities. Join Dennis for conversation and refreshment on Tuesday evening. For more information, call Laughing Oyster Bookshop at 250-334-2511 or check online at www.laughingoysterbooks.com.
