Who wants to raise the GST?


Former Liberal MP Martha Hall Findlay does, apparently.

An important thing she mentioned was that if she were elected, and the LPC won a majority government (and only a majority), she would raise the GST.

The former and current Liberal leadership candidate seems not to deny this Redditor’s account.

Former Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff flirted with the possibility of proposing an increase, but then became resolutely opposed to the idea.

Stephen Gordon has argued that the cut to the GST is responsible for the current federal deficit.
