Note that we only picked out tax-related announcements, and that is only one aspect of government policies (though that's the only part people like us find interesting). To make an informed decision, you should review the full election platforms of the Liberal Party of Canada, Conservative Party of Canada, and New Democratic Party, as well as the platforms of other federal political parties and independents.
