The federal Liberal Government will be implementing some tax changes in the near future, and small business owners may take a hit because of it.Candice Bergen is the MP for Portage-Lisgar and says employees at these businesses might also be affected.
"It's average people. It's people working at a retail store, it's people who maybe own a small mechanic shop," says Bergen. "That's who (Justin) Trudeau's coming after -- the middle class. The very people he was going to help, he is taxing them."
Bergen adds the opposition Conservatives asked the government to extend the consultation period to January, but the Liberals declined.
She says there's been no legislation tabled yet, and the Liberals haven't told them exactly what the taxes will look like.
For those with questions regarding the tax changes, she urges residents to attend a town hall meeting in Winnipeg tonight at Canad Inns on Pembina Highway. The event starts at 7:00 p.m.
