A member of the provincial NDP caucus asked government again today to lower the business tax on small businesses in the province from 4 per cent to 3 per cent.


MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Leader of the Third Party.

MS MICHAEL: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker.


NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill – Quidi Vidi) is appalled that the government is dismissing the province’s Public Utilities Board’s report on the feasibility of the Muskrat Falls project – and that it is apparently dismissing the PUB itself.
