The Canadian Liberal revolution rolls on

Liberal International reports that the Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced a historic plan aimed at growing the Canadian economy and boosting foreign direct investment. It includes simpler tax free child benefits which are estimated to lift around 300,000 children our of poverty, cutting taxes for middle income families and raising the tax for the wealthiest 15% of the population, [my emphasis - FHL] and boosting student grants.

One notes that the Canadian grants sit alongside a student loans system; one of the planks of the Welsh Liberal Democrat manifesto will be a student living support grant.
