Canadian MPs are considering two bills S-233 and C-223 to help people escape poverty through basic income programs. The former has passed the second reading in the Senate and the latter is still being discussed in the House of Representatives. However, some people are worried that it may lead to financial difficulties. of Canadians pay more in taxes.
According to \”CTVNews\”, Canadian Senator Kim Pate and New Democratic Party MP Leah Gazan introduced bills S-233 and C-223 respectively, aiming to establish the first national framework for all people over the age of 17 in Canada, including temporary workers and permanent residents. and refugee applicants are provided with 2,000 Canadian dollars (approximately NT$45,300) per person per month.
Pate said they created two bills with identical text to increase the chances of at least one of them passing the Senate or House.
\”Congressman Leah Gazan and I want to provide the House and Senate the opportunity to study this bill simultaneously.
” Wil Robertson, co-chair of the advocacy group Basic Income Ottawa, said the payment will be made on a reliable basis to those in need regardless of residency status.
According to Coalition Canada, a basic income is a regular, unconditional payment provided by the government to individuals. This ensures that everyone can meet their basic needs and live with dignity regardless of their employment status.
” But critics say such policies are divorced from reality.
Gage Haubrich, director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, said implementing a basic income could cost between $30 and $70 billion in the first year, according to a report released by Canada\’s Parliamentary Budget Office. The government now cannot afford the eventual increase in taxes and costs for taxpayers.
John Oakey, vice-president of tax at Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada, also doubts the government can afford such a costly policy, which would have to fund it and pay for it in some way. .
Either fiscal deficits will continue to run or taxes will have to be increased to avoid running additional deficits to finance them or existing spending will have to be reduced.
Many Chinese Canadians also disapprove of what it calls the \”something for nothing\” bill. They worry that Canadian residents can receive a minimum income of CAD$2,000 per month regardless of whether they work or not, which will lead to many people simply lying down and not working.
But Canadian lawmakers disagree. Advocating for a basic income would give workers time to find suitable jobs to pay for medical expenses not covered by public health insurance and generally improve their lives.
If more people work and earn more, the government will have more tax revenue to spend on more services and programs that benefit everyone.
As for how it will be distributed after implementation, Ontario professor Jim Dunn said one way is to give everyone a fixed amount of money every month, regardless of their income. Another basic income is a negative income tax, which is more complicated to manage than universal basic income. Previously, Ontario The basic income pilot project is one example.
Nobel Prize-winning free market economist Milton Friedman also supports the idea of ​​a negative income tax, which would provide low-income earners with a certain basic income while eliminating all other government welfare programs.
