Conservatives Refuse To Cut Oil Profits

"They work hard for our money we should be giving them more"

The Harpoville Post reports that Finance Minister Jim Flaherty refuses to cut into the huge oil profits being reaped by Canadian oil companies. A request from the Sierra Legal Defence Fund to end the 1.4 Billion in tax breaks given to the highly profitable oil companies every year has fallen on deaf Conservative 'oil filled' ears.

The Harpoville Post has learned that Mr. Flaherty has no desire to cut into the 27 billion dollars in profits, after taxes, made by the Canadian oil companies last year. Mr Flaherty told The Harpoville Post, "The desire of this government is do not disrupt the meger profits made by the Canadian oil industery as it struggles to stay afloat in these, $70. a barrel, hard times."
