Over the next nine weeks, Nova Scotia’s finance minister is going to the public for their thoughts on the tax system, and what should be included in the upcoming budget.
Diana Whalen said sessions will be held right across the province with a very specific goal.
“This is a public meeting that we’re sponsoring,” she said. “And we’re inviting the public to come and help us talk about taxes, in the context of: how do taxes affect our economic prosperity and the kind of future we want here in Nova Scotia?”
The first meeting gets underway this evening at Mount St. Vincent University with an information session scheduled for 6 p.m. and discussions set to run from 7 until 9 p.m.
More information on the consultation, including dates and times for other meetings, is available on the province’s website.
