After subjecting us to multiple articles by Barrie McKenna on FATCA, the Globe and Mail comes out with this: Treat all Canadian citizens equally under the law:
Stripping a citizen of citizenship is characteristic of a totalitarian regime such as the Soviet Union, which banished dissidents, including the writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn in 1974. It’s not a model for Canada to emulate.
Sending the banking information of Canadians of US origin to the IRS is an effective stripping of their protection under Canadian law as citizens. Hence it is another way that the Harper government wants to strip people of their Canadian citizenship. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is a tyrant and does not deserve to lead Canada.
