Sun Media has quoted comments Macdonald-Laurier Institute Senior Fellow Philip Cross made during an appearance before a House of Commons committee on Monday.
The Standing Committee on Finance was examining ways to ensure the long-term sustainability of federal finances.
“It’s important to lessen the tax burden on Canadians”, Cross was quoted as saying. “How we do it is not as important as lessening it”.
Newspapers across the country carried the story, including the Edmonton Sun, the London Free Press and the Toronto Sun.
