Today taxes are seen as a burden and tax cuts are treated as the last free lunch. While we increasingly demand politicians tell us the cost of new initiatives, we don’t ask about the cost of tax cuts. This distorted conversation on taxes has evolved over two decades. Alex Himelfarb explores the history and the consequences for Canadians on the assault on taxes.

Alex Himelfarb is a former top public servant and public policy expert. He served as director of the Glendon School of Public and International Affairs at York University from 2009-2014 when he was then appointed director emeritus.
