John Murphy: A unilateral digital services tax would be a mistake for Canada

Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau said this week that the Liberal minority government plans to implement a unilateral digital services tax (DST). This would be a mistake with broad ramifications for Canada. The digitalization of the world economy is proceeding at a remarkable clip, and it presents undeniable public-policy challenges, including in taxation.

When is a trade pact less like a marriage and more like a renewal of vows? Perhaps that’s the best metaphor for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada-Agreement (USMCA), the successor to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
