BREAKING NEWS: Murray Rankin’s Assistant just advised they expect the vote on the Omnibus Bill C31 in the House of Commons Monday, June 9 following Question Period.
The NDP moved report stage deletions to the budget, including deletions to every section pertaining to FATCA, so those will be voted on, followed bny the vote on the budget itself. It is expected that the Conservatives will vote down all of our amendments to delete.
I will keep you updated. And we will continue to work to advocate for all those caught up in the FATCA net!
