Wow! Two major anti-FATCA shots. One from Rick Mercer on CBC. Another from a press release from the NDP.
Rick Mercer says
“Here’s another story about Canadian banks sharing their customers personal information with the United States because the person is allegedly American.”
His wife wonders if they could be considered American because of that one trip across to Niagara Falls USA.
Today, Murray Rankin, NDP Revenue Critic tweeted an NDP news release Canadians Deserve Answers on FATCA.
“Canada cannot accept an agreement that violates Canadians’ rights,” said Rankin. “I am asking that the government acknowledge the very legitimate public concerns about the FATCA, bring transparency to this process and inform Parliamentarians on the state of negotiations as soon as possible.”
