I'm glad to see the Liberals talking more about the income trusts issue. I think there is a lot of anger simmering beneath the surface with ordinary Canadians about the way the Conservatives handled this issue.
I also like that the Liberal Party has a solid proposal that would address the issues with income trusts and help the ordinary Canadians that got squeezed by the Harper flip-flop. Hopefully the Conservatives and the NDP, who have come out against the sensible Liberal proposal, will get on board. We all agree corporations need to pay their fair share, but Canadian seniors shouldn't be hosed.
