Harper’s transit tax break
Stephen Harper actually has a good idea? Wow. Of course, he won’t get to make it law or anything, but at least the Libs may actually go forward with this idea. I don’t know why students get such a discount in Montreal, while the poor have to pay so much to use the metro. Just one of the reasons for the underground economy, I guess.
Last week, at the party’s national caucus meeting here, Harper embraced a long-overdue idea: Tax breaks for people who use public transit — and/or for businesses that encourage their employees to use it, for instance, by subsidizing GO train or TTC passes.
