If I had the chance to scrum Jack Layton, these would be the two questions I would ask him:
1.) You say you are going to raise corporate taxes by $50-billion. Do you have a single independant study on what the impact of such a tax increase would be on the economy - on jobs? Good, bad or otherwise, do you have any independent economist who has modeled the impact?
2.) You say that you want to raise corporate taxes because they are giveaways to "banks and oil companies." How about Research in Motion? It's an innovative Canadian company that is creating well paying, sustainable jobs in Canada. It's also profitable. Should it be paying more in taxes? Do you think that will help attract more RIMs to Canada?
