Open Invitation to Linda “FATCA” McQuaig

Hi Linda.

In case you haven’t heard, your Leader, Tom Mulcair, has just issued a letter to a lot of us concerning the NDP’s position on FATCA, in tandem with a letter to Jim Flaherty by Murray Rankin, your party’s Revenue Critic. See link here

Hmm … how does this match your published statements on FATCA?

My colleagues and I at Isaac Brock Society and Maple Sandbox cordially invite you to dinner, with the set menu depicted in the following photograph.

crow supreme

Sorry it’s not exactly haute cousine; we couldn’t find a better recipe on short notice. I think this one suits you to a “T.”

You are welcome to bring your spiritual buddy, Diane “merger” Francis, along with you.

Enjoy the crow. Bon appétit!

About schubert

I’ve had a CLN (Certificate of Loss of Nationality of the United States) since 1976, quite by accident (DOS mailed me one after I wrote a long anti-US letter to Henry Kissinger on July 4, 1976, telling him I’d become a Canadian citizen several months earlier and why, then confirming on a form I got in the mail that I had done so willingly – duh! – and with the intent of relinquishing my US citizenship). I filed the CLN away and forgot about it until August 2011 when I first heard about FATCA and FBAR and realized I needed to find the proof I am not an American in spite of my birthplace. My wife, who came to Canada with her ex before I did and also became a Canadian citizen, believed she’d thereby lost her US citizenship but didn’t write Kissinger, didn’t know anything about CLNs or the need to get one (nor did I at the time), and applied for a relinquishment CLN a few months ago. Until August 29, 2012, we were waiting to get her CLN, and it has been in her interests that I’m monitoring and occasionally participating in this and the IBS website. However, joy of joys, wonder of wonders, my wife’s CLN arrived in the mail on that date, so now we both have CLNs. I will continue to monitor and contribute to this website as I have time and when I think I have something constructive to add, but after 12 months of Hell we’re going to get our sanity and lives back, and that means a prolonged vacation from anything related to CLNs, IRS, FATCA, or any other such crap, unless it rears its head and threatens Canada and Canadians to the point where I have to come out of my corner fighting again …

    Linda McQuaig reminds me of the Vichy French. As long as it is her own ideological brethren who are violating the sovereignty of her country, she will get in to bed with them.

    She is worse than a political whore. She is a traitor who needs a brain transplant. Anybody who voted for her in the nomination process needs a brain transplant. Anybody who votes/voted for her in the by-election needs a brain transplant.

    I like the middle name that the forum has adopted for her.

    I am so angry with Linda McQuaig and her ill thought out recommendations for Canada that I will refrain from writing to her. What kind of a NDP member in this country would recommend such a thing as “good” for Canada. As far as I am concerned only a traitor would try to justify such a thing. I’ll say no more.
