PETITION TO THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA
INCOME TRUSTS BROKEN PROMISE
WHEREAS: The Prime Minister said that there is no greater fraud than a promise not kept; and
WHEREAS: He emphatically promised during the last election never to tax Income Trusts; and
WHEREAS: The Conservative Government recklessly broke their promise by imposing a 31.5% draconian tax on Income Trusts; and
WHEREAS: The broken promise wiped out over $25 billion of the hard-earned retirement savings of over 2 million Canadians; and
WHEREAS: Independent experts subsequently provided Parliament with clear evidence that the Finance Minister’s decision to tax Income Trusts was based on flawed methodology and incorrect assumptions.
We, the undersigned residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada:
to acknowledge that their financial justification for imposing the tax was flawed; to apologize to Canadians who were unfairly harmed by their reckless broken promise; and to repeal their draconian 31.5% tax on Income Trusts.
