December 9, 2016: Paige MacPherson, Canadian Taxpayers Federation. Canadian Taxpayers Federation website
Paige joined the Canadian Taxpayers Federation as Alberta director in 2015. Throughout her career she's had a passion for giving a voice to taxpayers and pushing for government accountability.
Paige was raised in Pickering, Ontario. Her work has taken her from coast-to-coast and in between, working in Halifax, Cape Breton, Fredericton, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary.
As a former elections reporter and weekend host for Sun News Network, Paige had the privilege of traveling across our great country to cover four provincial elections. For several years, she has contributed opinions and news coverage to newspapers and radio programs across Canada.
Prior to media, Paige worked in communications and media relations at the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies (AIMS), a Halifax-based think-tank. While there, she started AIMS on Campus, a free-market university outreach program. Paige earned her degree in political science from Dalhousie University in Halifax, and is working toward her Master of Public Policy at the U of C.
So much of what the CTF deals with – high taxes, debt, wasteful spending – is symptomatic of a much larger problem. That problem, simply put, is that our current political system fails to be accountable to the people who pay for it. It is especially offensive that Alberta would implement the carbon tax in a period when we have the highest unemployment in 22 years and small business continues to close their doors.
The thanks of the club were expressed by Darren Grierson, who presented Paige with our world famous Boltman.
