Income Trust Debacle, Canadian Politics

This is a brilliant idea for the Tories to save face over their income trust fiasco as well as to provide pension-like income plus taxes in an era of deficits. It was sent to me by Brent Fullard and is from the Marshalls written to their Member of Parliament. This is the letter in its entirety. I couldn't paraphrase or polish it any better than is already the case. I should be read and sent to every MP and every income trust victim in Canada.

The voice of reason , finally!!

Well done Lorraine & Dave.

Mr Flaherty , the ball is in your court as this is a win / win situation all the way around , as trust investors finally catch a break & the gov`t comes out smelling like a rose.

Pensioners win.

The gov`t has increased revenues.

The taxpayers have a reduced deficit & the maintaining of their services.

Excellent solution.
