David Anderson – Committee Evidence AGRI 54

David Anderson
Cypress Hills—Grasslands, Saskatchewan
Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food

I want to thank the witnesses for being here with us today.

We had a private member’s bill come before the House that would have made it easier for family transfers, and I’m sure it pained our colleagues across the way to vote it down.

I have a very short time here, but I’m interested in any suggestions you might make on taxation changes that would assist transfers. I’m speaking to the two farm groups primarily. Do you have something to suggest specifically about taxation issues? You mentioned deep discounts to interest rates. That would be one suggestion. I’m wondering if you have any other suggestions about taxation changes we could recommend to the government that would help with those kinds of matters.
