Experts and Agitators
Tax Politics and the Rise of Canadian DemocracyCan we do better at talking about tax?
Tax law is complicated and the economics aren’t easy, either. But we all know that taxes matter.
Tillotson thinks history can help.
With a sense of humour and a storyteller’s flair, she shows us that Canada’s unruly tax history is strangely entertaining. And maybe even a helpful guide for tax talk today.
