For that reason, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty slapped a distribution tax on income trusts to level the playing field between them and traditional corporations that cannot escape tax. Although the move angered voters who had invested in income trusts, the Conservatives did the right thing and put sound public policy ahead of partisan gain.
The Liberals apparently see a chance to make political gains in reversing Flaherty's decision. But such cynical moves can backfire, especially when they favour certain groups at the expense of others.
I'm not cynical, am I? Being a Cynic can get one in all kinds of hooey.
But I do gotta wonder if this is really an-Anti Dion editorial piece more than a pro-Flaherty one.
