Tax cuts still won't help women in need

Two hundred bucks.

That's about how much federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty's Halloween mini-budget will put back in my pocket at tax time.

But it won't stay there for long.

Instead, my "tax cut" will go to a charity that helps women less fortunate than myself. Stephen Harper's government, in its trick-or-treat bit of vote-buying in which it reinstated a Liberal tax break it took away last year, once again gave women the shaft.
