Stephen Harper's $35 Billion Income Trust Scandal
Stephen Harper made a solemn election pledge to never tax Income Trusts. He lied, and in the process destroyed $35 billion in Canadians' and foreign investors' hard-earned savings. Harper's excuse was that income trusts cause tax leakage. His Finance Minister refuses to release proof of tax leakage because there is no proof. What is Harper's real hidden agenda and who is it that actually benefits? Answer: corporate Canada, Life Insurance companies, foreign private equity, big pension plans and US oil.

I recall very well that when Goodall suggested the possibility the screaming from the Cons on this and Canada Gen but when the Harper government lied then went ahead with it ... that was ok and had to be done, no bias there was there?

This is a political board, if you want to start an issues board go ahead, it will probably be deader than this one.
