NDP MP Pat Martin In the House of Commons on February 22nd, 2000 Re The Bronfman Family

"Mr. Speaker, if a working person owes Revenue Canada $100 it will hound the person to the ends of the earth to make him or her pay up. Yet, when the Bronfman family moved $2.2 billion out of the country without paying a nickel in capital gains tax, the federal government did not seem interested. It has not lifted a finger to try to collect as much as $750 million in back taxes that this wealthy family avoided paying, and time is running out. If it does not act soon it will not be able to collect at all.

Thank goodness a private citizen from Winnipeg, George Harris, is taking this matter to court. George speaks for all Canadians when he argues that we could all pay a little less taxes if the extremely wealthy paid their fair share.

Why is the government not trying to collect those taxes from the Bronfman family? Why is it spending a fortune in legal fees trying to make sure that this case is never heard in court?

Best wishes to Winnipegger George Harris in federal court on March 9. George is fighting a fight for tax fairness for all of us."

 Can't wait to see the media question Justin Trudeau's choice as head of Liberal Party fundraising, Stephen Bronfman, of the billionaire Bronfman family. You know, the same media that questioned Stephen Harper choosing Nigel Wright because of his financial wealth?

Enzo Di Matteo Of NOW: Is This Guy Really That Stupid?

Apparently yes. In another editorial  by a lefty decrying Tim Hudak the big loser in the 5 by-elections, this guy comes up with this proven gem: "It’s a worrisome trend for PC party faithful who thought the gas plant scandal would take them to certain victory in 2011. But here they are two years later still trying to find their way out of the political wilderness. "

Now please allow me to point out the obvious. How were the PC Party faithful thinking the gas plant scandal would take them to victory in the 2011 election when the scandal never surfaced until months and months later, IN THE YEAR 2012 .

 Of course I could mention the PC Party had more total votes than the NDP and third place Liberals, won a seat in Toronto, with the McWynnety Liberals losing 3 of 5 seats that were previously held by cabinet ministers, but really, why bother? Apparently the Liberals have had so many scandals this guy can't even get the year right when this one occurred.
