Pierre-Luc Dusseault’s Assistant provided me with the Liberal government’s response to Mr. Dusseault’s Order Paper Questions.
The response is signed by “Child of the Charter” Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould. The Charter Child avoided the questions around legal challenges. On the legal analysis, the Minister responded:
(t) The information requested is subject to solicitor-client privilege.
The Justice Minster does not respond to questions after (t)–including (y) What legal challenges does the government anticipate and (z) what measures are in place to ensure the security of record transfers to the IRS.
CORRECTION: Many apologies for my error. The Government did respond to the above questions. On question (y), the response was:
A lawsuit has been filed against the government by plaintiffs opposed to exchange of information. In view of this litigation, the government is not at liberty to provide further comment.
In addition, Mr. Dusseault’s Assistant advised me the Minister of National Revenue has not responded to Mr. Dusseault’s letter of February 1 asking what the Minister’s intentions are on FATCA. letter Mr. Dusseault sent to
So, there we have it folks. I think we can safely conclude from this that “A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian” does not include those of us who had the misfortune to be born in the U.S.–and that the “Child of the Charter” intends to fight us every step of the way on our Charter rights.
A Liberal Hypocrite is a Hypocrite is a Hypocrite.
