Due to the significantly higher deficit than expected, time for Jim Flaherty to be fired as Finance Minister for Gross Incompetence. Also time for the Harper Government to cut back on the tax cuts to large companies. Besides, these tax cuts are not doing what its intended to do, create jobs.

These tax cuts are not creating jobs because the corporate taxes are still too high. There are other countries and States that offer lower tax rates, which makes it more attractive to create jobs there. Canada's tax rate needs to be lowered so that businesses can make more money. For example, I am moving a very very profitable call center operation to the USA on Jan 1. I am moving to a state where I will pay a lower tax rate, a lower wage, and I will not have to pay for things I don't care about like employee EI or employee CPP. Furthermore, I am getting a "job creation grant" which is essentially a big cheque as a "thank you" for moving jobs to that specific state. IN five years, I will be free to move again, and I will move the country or State that will enable me to make more money. It can be in Canada, Asia or the USA. it does not matter to me where the company is and who works there. That said, if Canada wants to create jobs, then the government must offer large companies and small companies a way to make more money, or the jobs will go elsewhere. Simply put, tax cuts are not enough.

Canadians can expect more clarity on the country’s economic affairs today as Finance Minister Jim Flaherty issues a mid-term fiscal report card.?? this comment must be some kind of joke.. please tell me how anyone can believe "anything" that Jim Flaherty says.
