Based on comments received from people who were part of the recent Ottawa protest, as well as passersby, I revised the generic FATCA handout to be more Canadian specific, and hopefully a bit more concise and visually appealing. Thank you Pacifica777 for helping with the editing!
If anyone has any suggestions for further improvements please let me know. One suggestion, I received, but did not act upon, was to have a 2-sided hand-out with only the highlights on one side, and the details on the other. If anyone wants to take a stab at formulating the highlights for the opposite side, please feel free. My goal, was to at least have a one-sided hand-out ready for the Calgary protest.
