TAX GRAB: Trudeau Government Clawing Back Tax Credit That Helps Diabetic Canadians


Trudeau government clawback of tax credit that helps many disabled Canadian diabetics denounced by Diabetes Canada.

Justin Trudeau’s endless effort to grab away the taxpayer dollars of Canadians continues. Despite the massive backlash he and Moneybags Morneau got when they launched an assault on Canada’s local businesses, it seems Trudeau is launching a new tax attack against Canadians.

As noted by the Canadian Press, “Health groups joined forces on Sunday with the Conservative opposition to accuse the Liberal government of trying to raise tax revenue on the backs of vulnerable diabetics.”

“Diabetes Canada was among the groups that joined Conservative politicians to publicly denounce what they say is a clawback of a long-standing disability tax credit to help them manage a disease that can cost the average sufferer $15,000 annually.”

The Liberals stopped approving the tax credit for those suffering from Type 1 diabetes – even for those who had previously been able to claim it:

“People who need more than 14 hours per week for insulin therapy, and had a doctor’s certification previously qualified. But other than citing a spike in applications for the benefit, the government offered no explanation for the change during initial interactions earlier this spring, said Kimberley Hanson of Diabetes Canada.

Thousands of claimants from across Canada who had previously been given the $1,500 annual benefit have been rejected in recent months, but Hanson said she can’t get an exact number from Canadian Revenue Agency and has had to file an Access to Information request to find out.”

Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre ripped the move by Trudeau & Moneybags Morneau:

“His tax department tried to tax the employee discounts of waitresses and cashiers. Now his government is targeting vulnerable people suffering with diabetes with thousands of dollars in tax increases.”

Many people were getting a yearly benefit of $1,500 per year, but are now being rejected.

Kimberley Hanson says the Trudeau government won’t even speak with her about it:

‘”Over the past two months, she’s stopped responding to my messages and answering some of my questions,” Hanson said, referring to one senior department official.”

Disgraceful tax grab

While loopholes used by elites like Moneybags Morneau are left open, the Trudeau government is now trying a tax grab on Canadians with diabetes. It’s a total disgrace, and adds to the growing list of evidence that the Trudeau government is actively working against the interests of most Canadians.

  1. In the last few months with all these ideas on how to tax everyone to death…Trudeau must have had a brain fart and he finally realizes that he is drowning Canada in debt. He’s not going to stop any time soon. He’s blocked the opposition from knowing the truth because he’s buying time and he’s arrogant as hell. Welcome to the next 2 years of Trudeau. The fun is over for him and reality must be kicking in. Canada must be in pretty bad shape lately, if he is grabbing at anything he can think of.

  2. Was this the Trudeau government, or Revenue Canada? There is a difference. Revenue Canada is known to interpret tax legislation the way it wants, and try to increase revenue. Agents get paid a bonus for increasing revenue. I know that Justin is the Prime Minister, but most tax legislation was in place when he came to power. I have not seen changes to this particular issue. It easy for the Conservative government to pick an issue and blame it on the Liberal government, when it is Revenue Canada that is really to blame. I hope you are not being suckered into a political situation that is not political at all.

  3. Albert Baker, how will anyone know if they refuse to answer. Sounds to me like you can lump this in with the other rip off schemes this government is coming up with. They should spend more governing and being more accountable to the masses instead of trying to find more ways to rip us off. And please, your should have, could have, would have has no place on this site. We already know that nothing but lies comes out of this bag of trash, so stop wasting our time.

  4. It is no wonder Trudeau is wooing the youth and immigrant demographic. Most would be uninformed and have not experienced betrayal. Youth are offered the gifts of admiration and recognition, and promised sunny ways. New immigrants are offered citizenship, monetary assistance and promised sunny ways. In the not so far future these youth will no longer be youth. The new immigrants will not be new and they have will become proficient in the official languages. That will be when they realize that they have been used, manipulated by a dreamy eyed grafter who’s bag of tricks is stocked with socks and conditioner. When that time comes, they will be forgotten and ignored much like long time customers of phone companies. The special offer is for new customers only.
