I wanted to post that a fairly prominent US tax law professor and new blogger Allison Christians is becoming the H. Heward Stikeman Chair in Tax Law at McGill University. From reading her blog she appears to be moderately pro FATCA although perhaps not as strongly as some other US tax profs I have seen out there(She is more pro information sharing citing the current US Canada agreement as an example). She has three blog posts I suggest you might want comment on. I have put links below:
She discusses the current US Canada information sharing arrangement in the above post and discusses DATCA
General post on offshore evasion
Discussion on the Netherlands joining the FATCA five agreement
Prof. Christians is almost certainly a US Person. Hopefully she will be enjoying filling out all those FBAR forms upon her arrival in Canada. Note: lets not get too nasty. Who knows Prof. Christians might be a Canadian citizen in a few years time.
