Advocacy in Action: Business Update with MP Pamela Goldsmith-Jones (aka: “the Pam Jam 2.0”)
She’s back to chat with Whistler Chamber Members! Sit down with Pamela Goldsmith-Jones for an interactive discussion on today’s hot business topics.
The discussion will open with a 10-minute update on recent events in business development, international trade, balancing the economy and environment, and ocean health, before opening the floor to Q&A on the proposed federal tax changes.
The tax changes the federal government has proposed are the most significant tax changes in 45 years. The proposed changes could have a big impact on owner-managed businesses across Canada and retirement plans of many Canadian business owners.

On Tuesday, October 4, Pamela Goldsmith Jones had this to say about the proposed tax changes:
“I have received over 1200 emails opposed to some or all of the changes, and I have spoken to hundreds of you personally. I am actively presenting your views to Minister Morneau, his staff team and my caucus colleagues. Thank you for your candid and insightful views. I believe it is in the public interest to allow the Minister to consider this vital input and provide a formal response as soon as possible.”
We are looking forward to discussing hot issues for business over fresh locally crafted food & beer at Hunter Gather.
Hunter Gather will offer their full menu of food and drinks available for purchase.
