Pandemic: Who Will Pay – A Webinar for Seniors and others on Canada’s unfair tax system

The richest one per cent have been making out like bandits during the pandemic, but will they pay their fair share of the taxes needed to cover our governments’ COVID-19 relief programs and health system costs? Not if they can help it!

We can press for greater fairness in taxation when we are well informed.
Register for a Zoom forum on Canada’s unfair tax system, co-sponsored by the Toronto and York Region Area Council of the Congress of Union Retirees and the Toronto Retiree Network.

The webinar will be moderated by Lester Brown, formerly of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), with Sheila Block,  senior economist with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and Toby Sanger,  director of Canadians for Tax Fairness.

Space is limited! Register now for an informative and stimulating discussion. You will then receive a Zoom link to the event. Click the following link to register:
