VIDEO: Liberal Tax Grab Threatens Small Airports Across Ontario
(July 22, 2014) “The Liberal aviation fuel tax increase will come down hard on families and small airports across the province,” said Ontario PC Interim Leader Jim Wilson.
Today, Wilson again asked the Premier why she’s chosen to increase aviation fuel taxes, a measure that will hurt travelling families, aviation workers and small airports across the province.
Now the Premier is saying she will help airports across the north – but what aid will be offered to airports in Chatham, Owen Sound, London or Collingwood?” said Wilson. “This is clear evidence that the Liberals are creating policy on the fly, with no plan.”
“The Liberals have failed to consider the impact this tax increase will have on the average Ontario family,” said Wilson. “Travellers and workers at small airports across the province shouldn’t be punished by this latest Liberal tax grab.”
