Here is a posting from Investor's Village CANROY's board:
Great article from Diane Frances
But we won't make progress on the issue unless the press, Diane inclusive,
will start focusing on the profiteers, the leeches who blackmailed Harper into breaking his promise.
When is that going to happen?
We need to show the public how the Demarais', D'Alessandro and the rest of this sinister gang benefited from the thievery.
Or maybe it would just be cleaner for all concerned, if one of the three Opposition Leaders were to expose Harper’s lie about leakage.
This is what Barack Obama would do, as his first act of office was to sign an executive order that makes disclosure of things akin to Harper’s Tax Leakage analysis, an obligation of his administration. Here in Canada, it seems everyone wants to keep us in the dark. Obama also said he wanted to be known as the “Empirical President”, not to be confused with Imperial, which would better describe Harper. By Empirical President , Obama means that he will base EVERY DECISION he makes with as much factual information as is available and is possible. This income trust tax policy was hoisted on Canadians based on the manufacture fraid called tax leakage. It is a total crock and the obverse of empirical. It is a charlatan's charade. We aren’t going to permit it to go down. The proper functioning of democracy is at stake. OUR democracy as entrusted to you, our PAID ELECTED Members of Parliament
Why are the Opposition Leaders sitting on their hands on this
fraud? We salivate for the kind of leadership that Obama represents. Who will be OUR Empirical Opposition Leader? Waiting is not an option, for waiting only served those who are part of the cleptocracy that is clearly going on here, as identified above. Which Opposition Leader will speak truth to Power.....as in:
Globe and Mail:
November 2, 2006
High-profile directors and CEOs, meanwhile, had approached Mr. Flaherty personally to express their concerns: Many felt they were being pressed into trusts because of their duty to maximize shareholder value, despite their misgivings about the structure. Paul Desmarais Jr., the well-connected chairman of Power Corp. of Canada, even railed against trusts in a conversation with Prime Minister Stephen Harper during a trip to Mexico, and told him he should act quickly to stop the raft of conversions, according to sources.
Only to be clumsily denied by Dominic D'Alessandro is this patently false attempt at "cover up" (February 1, 2007) in testimony in Parliament before the Finance Committee:
“The notion and the implication that somehow the government on this [income trust tax] file is responding to initiatives that originated with corporations is not based on reality.”
Like I said, enough already with Canada as a third world cleptocracy.
