Question for the Brodie-meister: Is the Cadman scandal “epic betrayal” enough for you?
November 13, 2006
This would be a more compelling analysis if the government weren’t already in the midst of a steady program of cutting tax rates, including corporate taxes, across the board.
The alternative to breaking the election promise and taxing trusts was to abandon all other tax cut plans as the corporate tax base quickly disappeared. Instead, Flaherty acted quickly, in the face of rapidly changing conditions, to break the trusts promise and save the rest of the government’s promises.
Not a pretty choice, to be sure, but hardly an epic betrayal either.

By the way Ian: We're still waiting for your corrupt government's proof of tax leakage as well as those tax cuts you referred to back in November 2006. Surely you weren't referring to that mindless cut to the GST?
