Québec City, February 14, 2018.  The Leader of the CAQ, François Legault, has failed in his first test to alleviate Quebec families’ tax burden by opposing the reduction of school taxes at the start of the 2018-2019 school year, as proposed by Philippe Couillard’s government.

By voting against Bill 166, François Legault is reneging on his promise and is opposing putting an end to tax inequities by reducing school taxes this year. Can Éric Caire and Geneviève Guilbault explain to Québec City region taxpayers why they should pay on average $241 more this year?

– Sébastien Proulx, Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports and Minister responsible for the Capitale-Nationale region

In brief:

  • All Quebecers are winners with the government’s balanced proposal that maintains investments in student services while easing the burden on taxpayers.
  • For the Capitale-Nationale region, the tax reduction proposed by the government for the start of the school year, and opposed by François Legault, amounts to $241.
