Tax Dodger Man™ in the news!

  • Ottawa Citizen: “The questions for Randy Hillier about his unpaid taxes have now grown sharper, with the revelation that the MPP did not disclose the issue to the provincial integrity commissioner when making his financial declaration last year.”
  • Sun Media: “The Canada Revenue Agency put two liens worth about $15,000 on Hillier’s home in July 2010, a fact Hillier did not mention on his MPP disclosure filed less than two months later. Both his party and his leader were also in the dark about the tax issue.  Hillier did not respond to a request for comment Sunday.”
  • CP/Huffington Post: “Tim Hudak’s campaign mantra that Progressive Conservatives are the only ones who will defend hardworking taxpayers was derailed Friday by revelations that a high-profile Tory is embroiled in a long-running tax dispute.”

    Love how you managed to work Tax Dodger Man into your conversation about the idiot’s email issue in the Alberta government this morning on CBC’s the Current, Warren.

    You are relentless. Give that man a raise.

    (I’m just glad you’re on our side, damnit.)

    I don’t think voters care. For people frustrated about taxes, they hear “a Conservative MPP is fighting the government on paying taxes? Good for him. Wish I thought of that.”

    It needs to be tied to the broader narrative of Tim Hudak having a fantasy budget, and Tim Hudak being a complete weasel. Or else it’s really not worth bringing up.

      I fear you may be right. You would think that most people would expect an individual seeking election to the legislature to actually obey the law, maybe even make that a starting point for qualification. However, maybe the dumbing down of the electorate is more advanced than we think. That is why education is always one of the first targets of the Right, educated people would never vote for them.

        The places where xenophobia and tax dodging work? They already have most of those seats. This is a great strategy for ensconcing a Le Pen style National Front movement, which may be what Randy is actually after.

    • Attack! says:

      Refusing to pay an assessed tax bill means you’re keeping other people’s money. Governments control LOTS of other people’s money. This Sr. MPP is running to become a Minister of the Government. Do Ontarians really want someone who keeps other people’s money for himself to be given the keys to the Provincial treasury?
