Freeze the Alcohol Tax

Canada has some of the highest alcohol taxes in the world. Yet, in 2017, the federal government introduced a measure that will further increase taxes on Canadians on beer, wine and spirits every single year. What was a bad idea in 2017 looks even worse as Canadians navigate their way through the pandemic. After the year we’ve had, Canadians don’t deserve an automatic annual tax increase on their favorite alcoholic beverage, and businesses and their employees can’t afford to be hobbled.
