Justin Trudeau had already objected in may to the income tax return single administered by the quebec government.
François Legault would not have been able to convince Justin Trudeau. The federal prime minister has answered a resounding no on Tuesday at the request of the government of Mr. Legault to establish an income tax return single managed by Quebec.
An hour later, the conservatives have tabled a motion to force the elected members of the House of commons to take a stand. They promise to acquiesce to the request of the prime minister Legault if they form a government in October 2019.
François Legault had made the request at his meeting with Mr. Trudeau in Sherbrooke in January. Ministers Dominic LeBlanc and François-Philippe Champagne had then argued that this proposal would jeopardize the jobs of 5,000 employees in 14 centres and tax data managed by Ottawa in the province.
Justin Trudeau had already objected in may to the income tax return single administered by the quebec government, despite the consensus of the national Assembly. He could not see the need and believed that Quebec already had a lot ” of control over immigration, language, culture “.
The New democratic Party (NDP) voted in favour of the income tax return is unique at its convention a year ago, but with the condition to protect jobs. It has since changed its stance.
