My comment on Facebook page: Draft Mark Carney for Liberal Leader

As the Federal Liberal Candidate for the riding of Whitby-Oshawa in the 2008 election, let me remind you that Mark Carney was the point person in Finance for the income trust file and was responsible along with Jim Flaherty for  the Halloween disaster of 2006 that cost Canadians to lose $35 billion of their retirement savings and lose an essential income investment alternative. Mark Carney was the one who put forward the patently false arguments that income trusts cause tax leakage and that income trusts are bad for the Canadian economy, which (if he were competent) would have known to be false. Yes, these were patent lies. Do you think someone who is so adept at lying to the Canadian public would make a good leader of the Liberal party? And why would Mark have advanced those lies?  For the betterment of Canadians or the betterment of Bay Street CEOs and his cronies at Goldman Sachs? Obviously it's the latter. The only tax leakage that was caused by income trusts was the one CAUSED by Mark Carney, as the predictable wave of foreign takeovers of devalued trusts that followed Mark's failed income trust policy resulted in a massive loss of tax revenues, from takeovers like the $5 billion takeover of Prime West Energy Trust by Abu Dhabi Energy, to name but one.

The Liberals need somebody with an actual personality , not some sad sack with the smile of Satan on a bad day.

Run little animals & very small children.

Well, well, if the Liberals allow Carney this sad piece of shit to run for leader, they will confirm once and for all their position on the destruction of Income Trusts. They truly are in bed with the CCCE and the liars called the CON's. How disgusting is this?
