Ontario election — Party positions on aviation fuel taxes
from By Kevin Psutka, COPA president and CEO
In the May 29 edition of eFlight, I highlighted our effort to seek party positions on the Liberal government's misguided decision, announced in the ill-fated budget, to increase the tax on aviation fuel and using it to finance non-aviation ventures.
We wanted to let our members know if the Liberals have reconsidered their position, in light of the letter sent to the Premier following the budget release and the subsequent call for an election. We also wanted to let our members know if the two main contenders — the PCs and the NDP — have a position on this issue, so that members can base their vote decisions in part on how each party intends to treat our sector of aviation.
