Inflation: Legault opens the door to a tax cut

Premier François Legault hinted on Monday that he could eventually announce tax cuts to help Quebecers strangled by inflation.

“We never said that we would not announce tax cuts,” exclaimed Mr. Legault when asked about this issue during a press briefing on Monday.

“Recurringly, should we make tax cuts? I ask you for a little patience. I understand that the Liberals, unconventionally, announce their campaign commitments four months before the election. We are going to do it in time and place, ”left the chief caquiste hovering as a reply.

Mr. Legault recalled that his party has already distributed checks to counter inflation, including an amount of $500 this spring to all Quebecers earning less than $100,000 a year, as well as other amounts last January.

"We have already announced that there will be another check in December to cover inflation," he recalled, referring to an electoral commitment he formally made during question period in the Assembly. nationally last week.
