(QUEEN'S PARK) - Randy Hillier, MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington, introduced a Bill today to protect Ontario taxpayers from new and higher taxes. The Bill will strengthen the Taxpayer Protection Act to ensure that all new and higher taxes are voted on by the people no matter what.
“We’ve seen the Liberal Government ignore the Taxpayer Protection Act time and time again with the Health Premium, the HST, and, most recently, their budding romance with the NDP,” said Hillier. “But that doesn’t give them an excuse to ignore the spirit of a law on the books. This Bill will make sure they can't.”
