Taxes could have been lowered in a more efficient manner. For instance, they could have offered tax reductions to those corporations that invest in Canada and create employment and wealth here rather than abroad (to create incentives), or avoid profit hoarding that the Bank Of Canada Governor spoke about. It could have been spread out better. On the spending side, the program cuts have been strategically partisan in nature, ideologically revengeful in application.
