How will we pay for it?
April 2, 2021
You’re already paying too much.
Kate White has a plan to get a fairer deal for people by asking those at the top to pay a little more.
Even before COVID made things harder, a lot of families in the Yukon already struggled to pay the bills and find a family doctor.
Investing in Yukoners – in health care, education, housing and small businesses is more important than ever and Kate White has a plan to do just that.
It’s hard to believe, but some people and big businesses have actually made money off this pandemic. It’s not fair.
Kate White has a plan to get the rich to kick in just a little more to pay for the services we need.
- Kate White will get the really wealthy to pay an extra 1% if they earn more than $250,000.
- She also plans to charge fly-in/fly-out workers who pay their taxes in other places a 2% tax to help pay for the services they use in the Yukon.
- And, since the territory currently makes more money from camping fees than placer gold royalties, she’ll make sure that the Yukon gets its fair share for its resources by raising mining royalties. People should benefit from the territory’s resources – not just companies.
The Yukon Party and the Liberals have not invested in helping everyday people and they have no plan to start helping now. They would rather keep giving breaks to the rich and their well-connected friends.
We can do better.
Kate White is choosing to have people’s back.
If we’re really all in this together, then it shouldn’t be the people who suffered the most who have to pay for the recovery.
Kate’s plan will take that little more from the rich and invest that money in the rest of us – in our schools, our hospitals, in creating jobs… in the people who live in the Yukon.
