“Is meddling with taxation risky action?”: A video from the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal President and CEO

Montréal, September 28, 2012 – With the government’s announcement about aggressive taxation on high income, dividends and capital gains, the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal has a duty to shed light on the harmful effects of such measures for our economy. As a response, the President and CEO of the Board of Trade, Michel Leblanc, has produced a video you are encouraged to watch.

“This aggressive taxation will affect investments, competitiveness and wealth creation in the Montréal metropolitan area,” says Michel Leblanc, President and CEO of the Board of Trade. “We are already lagging North American cities when it comes to per capita wealth. The measures proposed by the government will only aggravate the economic situation of Quebec and its economic driver, Montréal.”
