Below is a reader’s response that I was copied on to Andy Willis’ comment in the Globe today that: “Courtesy of Nortel Networks, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff is beginning to forge an industrial policy that stands in stark contrast to the Conservative's hands-off approach to business.
The reader writes:
Andrew, in the Globe this morning you describe a government that through the double taxation of Income Trusts caused investor losses in excess of $35bn, triggered a tidal wave of foreign takeovers of Income Trusts, a change in ownership that threatens both the Canadian tax base and our security in energy and raw materials, and is forcing trusts to go through an expensive, time consuming conversion back to corporations, as having a "hands off approach to business"? Are you out of your mind!? Harper is the most duplicitous, conniving idealogue we've ever had as PM. I guess he controls the Globe too.
