Before this swine flu pandemic had even broken as a story in the news, I happened to analogize Flaherty’s untreated income trust tax that has caused ongoing tax leakage to a “financial pandemic” Click here
Now that the swine flu pandemic has occurred, I see this matter in an entirely new light. There is very little any politician can do to protect Canadians against such a swine flu outbreak, that the “health officials” couldn’t and wouldn’t do on their own.
Meanwhile, the reverse is true of Flaherty’s tax leakage “financial pandemic”, in which there is no incentive whatsoever for the “finance officials” to admit their error, since as Brian Ernewein testified at the Public Hearings: “If we were incompetent, we wouldn’t admit to it.”
So here we have a case where politicians are quick to act on matters they have no control over, and sit on their hands and do nothing on the matters over which they have sole control. When is Parliament going to expose the lie about tax leakage?
Which Opposition Leader will perform the important function of Obama’s Empirical President ( as he seeks to be known as) to Harper’s Imperial Prime Minister, or have the corporations co-opted our politicians into a collective code of silence that would be counter to these executive’s NARROW SELF INTERESTS?
This is becoming the inescapable conclusion. I hope to be proven wrong.
