Thank you for your email. While it is unfortunate you are not renewing your membership we respect your decision — however there is one point of misinformation. We have spoken on FATCA in the past. This year we retained a major Canadian law firm to research this issue for us — we do not intervene or weigh in on every single civil liberties issue — but when we feel we can contribute effectively the first step is to ensure we have the best research. on FATCA we outsourced the research to ensure we had a complete picture of all the issues on both sides of the border. We had expected this research earlier this year , and have received replies from the firm that we will get the memo this fall. I am not sharing this information with you to change your mind, only to let you know that we have not ‘chosen not to address’ the issue.
