Today's Letter to the Editor, St. Catharines Standard


Billboards let voters know of broken promises .....

Re: Political attack ad is nothing more than graffiti, The Standard, March 27.

The real "graffiti" in this issue is the lies the Conservatives have stated regarding income trusts. They lied when they promised not to tax income trusts and they lied when they tried to justify the reasons for breaking this promise.

The unwarranted taxing of income trusts has caused billions of dollars in losses to Canadian and international investors, and especially those senior citizens that Prime Minister Harper and his gang so resolutely promised to protect.

The Canadian Association of Income Trust Investors is only stating the truth and the facts of the matter and is clearly forthright and honest on its advertised website.

I'm sure that if the billboard referred to in this letter had falsely accused our prime minister and his finance minister of lying, actions would have been initiated to have this billboard taken down some time ago.

This is especially true as we seem to have a prime minister who has a tendency to threaten and/or sue when challenged.

Why has he not taken any legal action in over a year? May it be he cannot contest the inferred charge?
