Doug Ford Commits to Eliminating Income Taxes for those on Minimum Wage

The new Ontario PC campaign bus rolled in to a local restaurant in the east-end of Ottawa today where Doug Ford laid out his second of five priorities for the people of Ontario: Putting More Money in Your Pocket.

As part of this latest commitment, Ford said that if elected, the Ontario PCs will introduce a new tax credit that will eliminate income taxes for those on minimum wage. This means, that no matter where you work in Ontario, if you are making minimum wage you won’t pay a single cent in income tax.

“We have a plan for the people of Ontario,” said Ford. “We’re going to clean-up Kathleen Wynne’s hydro mess and lower your taxes. And for folks making minimum wage, we’re going a step further. Under a PC government, if you are making minimum wage, you are going to pay no income tax at all.”

Throughout their 15 years in power, the Liberals have introduced multiple tax grabs and fee increases designed to take money out of the pockets of Ontario families, including: the so-called health tax; higher income taxes; eco taxes; fee increases; skyrocketing hydro bills; the HST; and the cap and trade slush fund.”

“The Liberals continue to invent countless new ways to take your hard-earned money from you,” said Ford. “If you can think of it, they can tax it.  And make no mistake, if Kathleen Wynne gets her way and clings to power, she will get right back to increasing your taxes once again.”

Ford stated that Ontario voters will hear more in the days and weeks ahead about additional measures that will put more money their pockets.

“It’s time to turn the page on Kathleen Wynne’s tax grabs and deliver real change that works for you,” concluded Ford. “That’s our plan for Ontario. That’s our plan to put more money in your pocket. It’s all part of our plan for the people.”
