What will be the theme of this election? One week into the campaign, the answer remains unclear. The Conservatives clearly want this election to be about tax cuts. We shouldn't let them succeed.

In the past few days, Andrew Scheer has announced a "universal tax cut" that will overwhelmingly benefit the top half of the income distribution and reintroduced a number of tax credits from the Harper era, including for transit and children's fitness programs. These are also essentially tax cuts.
