Taxes are not merely a way for governments to raise revenue. Taxes are a political mechanism for directing economic activity, addressing major issues facing communities, supporting our democratic and cultural institutions and determining how we shape our physical and social environment.

In the last two decades, people with power and wealth have consciously tried to create a public animosity towards paying taxes. However, most tax payers know that the services, supports and systems that we need to function as a society must be paid for in some equitable way.

This workshop, organized by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (Manitoba) and the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg, will address the tax debate imbalance facing Canadians. A cross section of concerned individuals and representatives of select organizations are invited to meet to analyse how taxes are now defined and used, and to consider what can be done to promote tax fairness for Manitobans.
