LILLEY: Canadians are the fools this April 1 as taxes, MP pay go up

DM

It seems that on April 1, Canadian taxpayers will be the fools. Not only will we be on the hook for a pay raise for Members of Parliament, but will also see the federal carbon tax increase by 33%. And if all that drives us to drink, we’ll also be paying more for the pleasure of a beer, wine or shot. Welcome to the April 1 cash grab from Ottawa — and the best part is, it’s all automatic so MPs don’t have to do anything but collect the cash — for the federal treasury and for their bank accounts.
