A Senate Committee on Tax Reform made its only stop in New Brunswick in Saint John today.
It heard from the head of the NB Medical Society, a dentist and a rehabilitation doctor who was acting as an individual.
Dr. Patti Forgeron told the committee doctors in this province don’t have off-shore tax havens like many think and contribute a great deal to the economy.
She says they invest in restaurants, garden centres, green houses and land developments and employ a lot of people in the province.
Dentist Dr. Kelly Manning had a suggestion for the Senate to take back to the Trudeau government, calling for a Royal Commission to do an independent study of the tax system.
Dr. Dharm Singh, the president of the NB Medical Society, said a survey of the membership found if these tax changes are implemented as is, two thirds would cut back on their hours of service and half would consider leaving the province or country.
