Instead of explaining themselves, the Globe reinstated my original comment of:
Brent Fullard comments:
I should have added that the Marshall Savings Plan will generate $6 billion in tax revenue PER ANNUM and will therefore deal with Canada's deficit crisis while at the same time put the 75% of Canadians without pensions on a more level playing field in terms of investment choice with the 25% of Canadians with pensions and therefore addresses Canada's pension crisis.
In an Environics Research Poll of Feb 4 - 9 conducted via 1,000 random phone calls across the country, the Marshall Savings Plan has the support of 79.6% of Canadians, and support from Conservatives was the highest at 85% and the Bloc was the lowest at 75%.
See more details at MarshallPlan.ca
Diane Francis of the Financial Post called the Marshall Savings Plan "brilliant".
Is Flaherty capable of being "brilliant", while responding to the wishes of 80% of Canadians? Time will tell.
