GST cut just the start, Flaherty says
: Ottawa wants to chop taxes across the board, Finance Minister declares (STEVEN CHASE, 6/30/06, Globe and Mail)

On the eve of the GST reduction, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said he wants to make further across-the-board federal tax cuts to help spur economic growth — giving Canadians a glimpse of the Conservatives' postbudget agenda.

“We would like to reduce the tax burden as we go forward in all areas of taxation, as we did in Budget 2006,” he told reporters after a speech to the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce.

“We think taxes are too high — still, in Canada — despite the reductions that are coming into force.”
