Conservatives pledge review of tax system to ease headaches for small businesses

first_imgST. CATHARINES – Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is pledging to repeal changes to the tax system that led to a near war between small business and the Liberal government two years ago.Scheer said today he’ll reverse the decision by the Liberals that increased the tax rate on small business investments and made it harder for companies to pay dividends to family members.“A new Conservative government will continue to celebrate small businesses as drivers of prosperity, and not view them merely as sources of revenue,” he said.In 2017, the Liberals changed the tax system for businesses to close what they called an unfair loophole. It allowed small businesses to keep income from sources not related to their work inside their corporations, where it was taxed at a lower rate than if they had counted it towards their personal bottom line.The government had argued that allowing that system meant people were incorporating just for a tax benefit, but a massive outcry ensued among those who felt the Liberals were branding self-employed Canadians as tax cheats.The government was subsequently forced to change their proposed new rules, and decided to allow businesses to keep a maximum of $50,000 in passive income before the new taxes kicked in.Scheer said today he’ll just reverse that, and another change the Liberals made around paying dividends to family members.He’ll also appoint an expert panel to review the entire tax system in order to modernize it, find a way to help businesses better navigate the tax system and reduce regulations by 25 per cent over four years, which would be identified after a review. He said he’d assign a minister specifically to cut regulation.Scheer is campaigning today in southwestern Ontario, making his tax announcement in St. Catharines before moving on to Waterloo and London, Ont. pushing his central message that the election is a question about who people should trust to help them get ahead.last_img read more

Anger more harmful for older adults

first_imgAnger is more harmful than sadness for older adults and may lead to health complications – potentially increased inflammation which is associated with chronic illnesses like heart disease, arthritis and cancer, say researchers. The recently conducted research shows that anger can lead to the development of chronic illnesses whereas sadness did not. “Sadness may help older seniors adjust to challenges such as age-related physical and cognitive declines because it can help them disengage from goals that are no longer attainable”, said study lead author Meaghan A Barlow from the Concordia University in the US. For the study, the researchers analysed data from 226 older adults ages 59 to 93 from Montreal, Canada and grouped participants as being in early old age (59 to 79 years old) or advanced old age (80 years or older). During the study, participants completed questionnaires about how angry or sad they felt. The research examined whether anger and sadness contributed to inflammation. “We found that experiencing anger daily was related to higher levels of inflammation and chronic illness for people aged 80 or above, but not for younger seniors,” added the research co-author Carsten Wrosch. The researchers suggest that education and therapy might help older adults reduce anger by regulating their emotions or by offering better coping strategies to manage the inevitable changes that accompany ageing.last_img read more
