Interesting commentary piece in today’s Globe and Mail suggests that Harper and Obama have run out of patience with each other, and we should expect this situation to get worse not better.
The usual suspects of disagreement are trotted out from the stalled Keystone XL pipeline to the recent posturing on Israel that Harper is milking for all that it is worth.
However, the author makes no mention of the FATCA IGA that no one outside the sitting government seems to have any firm details on, nor does it mention the coming panic in Canada when more and more Canadian citizens fall victim to the blatant financial data grab that FATCA really is.
There were about 90 comments. I didn’t note any FATCA related ones but perhaps those Brockers who comment at G&M might have the time to add FATCA to the list of irritating issues between Canada and the US.
