Prime Minister working on a new economic plan

Prime Minister working on a new economic plan Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has unveiled Canada's Adjusted Growth Strategy along with the Investment Strategy. Together these aim to further strengthen Canada’s economy.
 
The adjusted growth strategy will look at creating more jobs and providing skills-based training while the investment strategy will support a strong economy through high-quality, historic investments, particularly in transit, green, and social infrastructure.
 
Combined, the strategies aim to boost the job market, strengthen the middle class and help those on their way to joining it.
 
The Prime minister said: “When the middle class has more money to save, invest, and grow the economy, we all benefit, and I am proud to share a new and positive Canadian vision for stronger growth and investment.”
 
With ‘transformative’ being one of 2015’s buzz words the strategies are said to be just that allowing for infrastructure investments to improve Canadian lives.
 
The plans also include the government's new innovation approach which means a tax cut for the middle class and further investments into families with the creation of the Canada Child Benefit. This is said to support the government’s overall objective to create a prosperous Canadian economy and society, and increase living standards of Canadians.

    This is a great idea in theory but if the new Liberal Gov't brings in a Carbon tax or Cap and Trade what ever savings might be realized through a direct reduction in Middle class tax rates will be made up by them having to pay higher prices for goods and services with after tax dollars. The net result will be no savings for the middle class and likely a net loss overall since carbon taxes or cap and trade will result in manufacturers passing on those costs through higher prices. The Liberal idea is all smoke and mirrors. As far as taxes the wealthy that will likely result is less revenue than they are planning since wealthy individuals will just figure out ways to reduce their taxes through legal methods or in extreme cases simply move themselves or their companies out of Canada.
