Oshawa's Strong Voice in Parliament


Taxpayers here in Oshawa and across Canada need your help this month.

Please do your part to help kill the Trudeau government's sneaky hidden tax increase...

The Petition

Whereas the Trudeau government plans to hike the hidden tax on beer, wine, and spirits by 4.7% on April 1, 2024 without any parliamentary scrutiny or a vote by MPs;

And whereas Oshawa residents are already suffering from the inflation and cost-of-living crisis created by Trudau's high-tax/high-spend agenda;

And whereas excise taxes already account for approximately 50% of the price of beer, 60% of the price of wine, and over 75% of the price of spirits;

And whereas, since implementing the hidden escalator in 2017, the Trudeau government has tied the tax to the rate of inflation and already increased this tax by nearly 19%;

And whereas automatic/hidden tax increases are unaccountable and unaffordable for our area's local craft producers, bars and restaurants;

We, the undersigned, call upon the government to cancel its planned tax hike on beer, wine, and spirits.
