Yesterday myself and group of concerned Canadians met with John McCallum. We were joined by 30 other people on the phone (Investment managers, issuers and individual investors).
We were meeting with John McCallum to point out the significant damage that has been done to jobs, savings and retirement income by Flaherty’s misguided income trust tax.
We are calling upon the Liberal government to make a repeal of the income trust tax a condition precedent of their support of the upcoming budget, as repealing the income trust tax is tax accretive to Ottawa. At the same time achieves all the stated policy objectives of the day.
That said, try naming one other policy measure that is both tax accretive and stimulative?
Here is the document that was discussed with John McCallum.
The meeting was recorded, and can be replayed by dialing 416-640-1917 Passcode: 21294861#
