First Nations Leader Slams Canadian Taxpayers Federation
"The grand chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (Chief Lawrence Joseph) is accusing the Canadian Taxpayers Federation of "spreading lies" about First Nations development and taxation. [...]
In an article titled Let's Talk Taxes dated Jan. 30th, the taxpayers group criticized Piapot First Nation's interest in having an urban reserve in the heart of Regina. The group said it would be unfair competition for other businesses in Regina if the reserve had a gas bar and grocery store operating tax free.
Joseph said the taxpayers federation's stance that urban reserves will undermine municipal tax bases is simply not true."
People in Regina have grown weary of the constant negative messaging that comes from the CTF. The group advocates an extreme right wing view of the economy very similar in worldview to the Fraser Institute and the folks at smalldeadanimals.
