OTTAWA — The Conservatives say they will oppose new tax measures introduced in the Liberal budget.

The comments come just hours before the House of Commons is set to vote on a Liberal motion to make Canadians who make a profit from selling assets pay more capital gains tax.

The Conservatives did not state their position on the capital gains adjustment before today.

The Liberals call it a fairness tax to make wealthier Canadians pay their fair share.

Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre says in a statement that it’s not going to harm billionaires but will affect farmers, small businesses and doctors.

He says he would create a “tax reform tax force” within 60 days of becoming prime minister that would simplify tax rules, cut taxes and reduce corporate welfare.
