Greetings Ms. Malloy.
It is refreshing to see this issue getting the media attention it truly deserves.
As a financial planning professional , I have witnessed first hand the devastating effect this broken promise has wreaked upon many of my clients financial well-being . Given the fact that a vast majority of all Canadian citizens do not have “gold-plated” defined benefit pension plans, this ill-conceived legislation serves to exacerbate their retirement income plight not to mention the fact that Canadian ownership of many of our natural resources slips away via foreign takeovers.
I continually remind my clients each & every time we meet that when it comes to income trusts, the Harper Conservative government broke its promise of “never “ taxing them.
Congratulations to the Hill Times as well as the North Bay Nugget /Osprey Media Publishing for printing Mr. Fullard’s excellent articles. Keep up the good work on behalf of the many Canadians who need their voices heard.
To Mr. Flaherty & Prime Minister Harper, you have the power to right the wrong you have grievously inflicted upon the majority of Canadians.
You know your tax leakage logic is both flawed & fraudulent , so do the right thing by reversing your malefic legislation.
