Brison calls for tax overhaul

From the Brison campaign's newsletter:

Scott Brison is calling for a complete overhaul of Canada’s tax, regulatory and economic support systems with the goal of making Canada’s international competitiveness a key national objective

His speech about his vision for a more prosperous and innovative future was his first major policy address of the campaign.

Scott says a smarter tax system would make Canada a magnet for talent and capital and would also better respect the hard-earned dollars of working men and women in Canada.

He was addressing a room packed with business people in Toronto who enthusiastically applauded his bold ideas."

Good stuff. Among his proposals are allowing young people to earn $25,000 a year tax free for the first 12 years of their careers. Also, setting up individual EI accounts, allowing people who do not draw on their EI for a decade to tap the unused money for further training and education.

The full speech is available on the official website for the Brison campaign.

This guy really is becoming the ideas candidate in the leadership race. I have no doubt there is much more to come.
