"Who would have thought retail sales clerks, hardly perceived as at the top of the
financial food chain, were such tax-evading scofflaws that the Trudeau Liberals would be
unleashing the taxman on them?

But they are.

The young woman slogging long hours in the food court at your local mall, making
assembly-line subs or keeping the steamers filled with Chinese noodles, is apparently
taking us all for a ride with the staff discount she gets when it comes to paying for her
own lunch.

Ditto for the clerk in the pencil skirt who works two part-time jobs to get by, and who
got a 20% staff discount on her dress so she can look as well-dressed as the store's
fashionable mannequins.

Tax cheats all.

'Thanksgiving asks us to remember those less fortunate,' Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
said in a press release Monday. 'And to show compassion to those in need - not only
today, but every day.' He has such a way with words, especially templated ones.

But he continually fails to connect with real people."

More sarcasm:

It's funny how they can come up with policies to deal with the minimum
wage workers who get a few tiny little perks, but they won't prosecute
senator Wallin for claiming expenses to travel
to Guelph to attend a function at the university where she holds a
position, or for expensing a flight from Toronto where she owns a condo
under the pretense of attending a military unit dinner that she never
attended. They have no major problem with a senator who expensed
breakfast when she was on a government expensed flight on which food was
served. They paid Duffy about $100,000 in living expenses to live in the
Ottawa area house in which he actually lived under the pretense of
actually living in the province he is supposed to represent.

With these guys it all comes down to who you are & who you know. And, as the writer
says, the little perks will be too much of a pain in the ass for employers and employees
to deal with, so they'll eventually disappear.

Isn't it pathetic. They will hassle the small businesses and the minimum
wage earners over an amount of possibly taxation loss that pales in
comparison to the cost of the apparently limitless perks and expense
accounts of our politicians.

We should have a Capital Tax: use it or lose it.

Reading the Globe last night I see that Liberal Wayne Easter is criticizing the change in
committee, so it *appears* to be something Canada Revenue Agency has done on their own.
But will the Liberals do something about it, as it seems to be a pretty stupid mean-
spirited move.
