Does Trudeau Think It’s Ok for His Cabinet Members to Avoid Taxes?
Justin Trudeau chose two people who have personally benefitted from tax havens to serve as his top two financial officials.
When challenged on this by Jagmeet Singh at last night’s debate, he avoided the question.
How can Just Trudeau tell Canadians he can’t afford pharmacare while his top two cabinet members don’t even pay their share of taxes?
Bill Morneau, Finance Minister
- The Paradise Papers show that Morneau Shepell has subsidiaries in known tax havens Barbados and Bahamas.
- Morneau incorporated the company in Bahamas in 2014, while he was Executive Chair and owned approximately $20 million in shares.
- The company incorporated in Barbados in 2016, while Morneau still owned shares and was serving as Finance Minister.
