Liberals accused of breaking vows as key income-tax pledge passes through House
The Liberals faced accusations of broken election vows Wednesday as their centrepiece pledge to raise taxes on the biggest income earners, while cutting them in a lower bracket, passed the House of Commons.
This comes after the Liberals told voters the headline change in that package — the income tax cuts and increases — would be revenue-neutral.
Earlier this week, the government acknowledged the $1.2-billion shortfall.
