One last dig at Toronto

Sorry, I can't resist. I just picked up this little tidbit from Jonathan Chevreau from the FP Investing.

There is, in fact, one Liberal in the land who is actually committed to A Life Less Taxing, and even wrote a book on the topic. From the overview:

The Single Tax System was developed in 1988 by a group of passionate and dedicated Canadians from all walks of life.Two years later, in 1990, we released called The Single Tax, which described that proposal. Ten years later, after several studies, parliamentary submissions and reports, we're stepping up the debate on comprehensive tax reform with the release of our most recent effort, A Life Less Taxing.

A Life Less Taxing is more than just a book; it's also a framework for debate.
We have continually said that Canada deserves a simple, fair, efficient and competitive national income tax system. This book provides a highly readable explanation of how Canadians can make that system a reality.

You'll be happy to know that he was the one and only Liberal to be defeated in Toronto. They elected NDP leader Jack Layton instead.

Dennis Mills has some great ideas about taxation. The problem is that he rarely voices them. He briefly promoted the idea of a flat tax back when the Reform Party were around but he feared being dubbed a loose cannon in the Liberal caucus, so he stayed quiet. He's also pro-life and pro-traditional marriage but he only talks about that when opponents or the media put his back against the wall. He spent the entire campaign trying to be more Layton than Layton, promising huge spending on every possible program and it wasn't good enough. Mills should consider running for the Tories next time in a different riding if he's serious about putting some of these issues forward. Still, I'm quite sympathetic to Dennis Mills.
