One thing that continually shocks me is just how many people are effected by the US’ Citizenship Based Taxation of all political stripes Doug Ford, David Alward, Elizabeth May, former Toronto Mayor David Miller, and now the children of long time and prominent Quebec Seperatist leader and founder of the Bloc Quebecois Lucien Bouchard. Here is wikipedia:
Bouchard separated from his second wife, Audrey Best (1960–2011), a Côte d’Azur-born California-reared airline stewardess, who later became a lawyer, whom he met on an international flight. She was the daughter of James Best, a U.S. Navy officer, and his French wife, Marie-Josée Massay.
Bouchard is the father of two sons with Best, Alexandre and Simon, who hold dual Canadian-United States citizenship. Best held dual United States-France citizenship. She died on January 25, 2011, aged 50, from breast cancer.
I am curious what Bouchard thinks about current Bloc Quebecois leader Danielle Paille strong support of FATCA to root out “tax cheats” and other “scum.”
Other Canadians can probably describe to our non Canadian readers who Lucien Bouchard was. Sometimes something called Meech Lake is mentioned here all I will say is Bouchard was an a key player in it.
