Paul Martin Committed To Cut In Corporate Tax

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

16 December 2003


Canada’s incoming Prime Minister Paul Martin has assured the nation’s businesses that he does not intend to cancel a $4.4 billion corporate tax cut despite the government’s spending commitments in the sphere of health and other public services.

"I would doubt that that's where a change would be made -- the focus is going to be on government spending", Martin told the media after the inaugural meeting of the new cabinet.

"There's no doubt our priorities are health (and) the quality of life for Canadians. One of the reasons we want to re-examine our programs, it's to find $2 billion we would like to give to provinces for health care,” the Prime Minister added.
