    Whatever other Liberal election promise is or is not included in next week’s throne speech, it’s a fair bet that raising taxes on “the wealthiest one per cent” will feature front and centre. Somewhat less prominence will likely be given to the tax cut for the middle class. It wasn’t always this way.
