The federal government is now processing all the public input it received on its controversial taxes reforms. The 75 day consultation period came to an end late Monday.
The Trudeau government has been criticized for launching those public consultations in midsummer during vacation season, and for being too brief for such a complex set of changes.
Portage-Lisgar Conservative MP Candice Bergen says the Tories made a last ditch effort in to delay the Monday deadline.
"We had an opportunity to bring forward a motion simply asking the government to extend on the consultation period to give people a chance to figure out what's going on and to get some of their questions answered. Unfortunately, all of the Liberal MPs, except for one, voted against our motion and as a result, it was defeated. So, the government is going to plunge ahead with these tax changes."
On Tuesday, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said the government will review will review the feedback it has received on the controversial tax changes, and all three parts of the plan could see adjustments.
Bergen called Morneau's statement surprising.
"Up until a couple of days ago, Bill Morneau was saying that his tax changes were fair and that they would have no detrimental affect on farmers and small businesses. At this point, I don't have a lot of confidence in the finance minister and the decisions that he's making. I don't trust him, because I know the Liberals are in desperate need of cash and they are raising taxes on small business owners to try to raise that cash."
Morneau has argued the tax changes will level the playing field for all Canadians, especially for the middle class, because they would end tax advantages unfairly exploited by some wealthy business owners.
