Tax Fairness Lecture

Tax Fairness: Restoring the Public Good

Tax Fairness: Restoring the Public Good

“This year, just 5 Canadians have the same wealth as the bottom 30% of Canadians – more than 11 million people.” (Oxfam 2016)

How did we get here? And what can we change to fix this massive wealth inequality? The answer to both of these questions is: our tax system.

Join the TRUSU Equity Committee as we present Alex Hemingway, Public Finance Policy Analyst from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives BC to discuss:

  1. How the wealthy avoid paying their fair share by abusing and undermining the tax system
  2. What we can do to build a fair tax system that works for everyone!

The event will begin at 6PM on October 17, 2017 in the TRUSU Lecture Hall. The event will include a presentation from Alex and a Q&A period with attendees to encourage discussion. All are welcome!
