Lloyd Kerry is bang on. The low personal tax exemption for P.E.I. is a disgrace. If Premier MacLauchlan and his government really want to help the poor in this province, they would immediately increase the exemption to the Canadian provincial and territorial average. This would remove numerous low income Islanders from the tax rolls and also help all other taxpayers and indirectly, the economy. It’s time, Mr. Premier, for you and your government to show you care, particularly for low income Islanders.
