Bubblebustin just commented that Minister Flaherty’s holding a press conference tomorrow in Markham:
Perhaps some TO area Brockers would like to organize a protest. So far, I have heard back personally from one Brocker willing to go if she has company. As Atticus and I know from experience, it only takes two people to get media attention.
UPDATE: There must be thousands of ‘US persons’ living in Toronto, many of whom are just waking up to the fact that they are ‘US taxpayers’, and waking up to FATCA, and who frequent this site.
WHERE ARE YOU?
When things do not turn out as you would like, please don’t blame Gwen, or Petros, or IRSCompliant, or NobleDreamer, or Marie, or Blaze or Schubert, or NorthernStar, or Badger, or Bubblebustin, or Calgary411, or any of the others who have been working on your behalf to put an end to all this FATCA nonsense. ‘US persons’ from all over the world come to this website, and look to Canadians for answers. We are the only light they have in the darkness of all this madness. Hundreds of thousands of people are counting on Canada to save them. When opportunities to make ourselves LOUD, such as tomorrow’s announcement, come around, to not take advantage of them, is to show weakness, and to admit defeat. Don’t let them win. Now is our time.
No government should be having these sorts of negotiations in private without every Canadian citizen fully understanding what the implications are.
