Opposition Finance Critic Darlene Compton wants a Legislative Standing Committee to hear from Island business and professional groups about proposed federal changes to how small businesses are taxed.
Compton says the proposed changes to how small businesses are taxed would have wide ranging economic impacts.
So she says she thinks it’s important for MLA’s to hear directly from Island groups and sectors that could be affected.
Compton has written the Standing Committee on Education and Economic Development to request a hearing at the earliest opportunity where affected groups could explain how the changes would work in practice locally.
A public consultation period on the proposed tax changes expires on October 2nd.
