Vancouver has lowest corporate tax rates in the world

A few of my old friends from UBC have been shaking up politics in Vancouver, an old haunt of mine, at their online news source, The Mainlander. It is fantastic stuff.

In their latest article, Nate Crompton writes that Vancouver politicians are continuing to ignore social problems in favor of pro-business policies. For one, Vancouver  has lowest corporate tax rate in the world which includes frequent reductions in taxes for condo development. Amidst the growing problems of homelessness and drug addiction, Vancouver is also seeking a clearly counterproductive anti-poor flat tax regime. Additionally, the once considered progressive mayor, Gregor Robertson, has reneged on his commitment to build social housing in of the newly built Olympic Village project.
