Income Mistrusts

Well we are about find out how good the Tories are when it comes to communicating their policies.

Because after their decision to tax income trusts, the Conservatives are going to need all the communicating skills they can muster.

The Liberals, of course, will have a field day accusing the Conservatives of breaking a key election promise and of flip-flopping on an issue that’s extremely important to seniors and Bay Street companies.

The challenge for the Tories will go beyond just convincing voters their change of heart makes fiscal sense, they will also have to work hard to explain why they changed their minds.

It’s what you might call the Dalton McGuinty Syndrome.

Smart move, but dumb promise. Besides this was inevitable no matter who got elected. With the amount of corporations using income trusts to avoid paying taxes, it was only a matter of time before someone brought in taxes.
