Casey reiterated that the proposals are in the consultation stage, and that nothing’s etched in stone. He says he’s heard a lot of feedback and concerns on the proposals, especially with the issue of succession planning. He says he’s not at the cabinet table, but believes that’s one area that will be addressed.
It was standing room only as the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a Town Hall on Tax Changes Friday morning at the Delta Prince Edward.
Charlottetown MP Sean Casey took part in the event via Skype from Ottawa, and heard a number of concerns from the hundreds of business people in the room, some who were very angry.
Business owners questioned the intention of the proposed changes and the short and long term implications on investment, succession planning and entrepreneurship in PEI and Canada, should the changes proceed as presented.
Casey stressed that the intention is not to harm small businesses, and finished by telling the audience to stay tuned after consultations end next week.
