Canadian Finance Minister to address Chartered Accountants
A press release by the Canadian Federal government:
The Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, will be a guest speaker at the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants Tax Symposium on Monday, October 16, 2006.
Minister Flaherty will discuss the steps Canada’s New Government is taking to reduce the tax burden and create a more competitive tax system for Canadian families and businesses.
A question and answer session with members will follow the Minister’s address.
I wonder how one gets invited to such a symposium. Media who want to attend can contact someone at the CICA, but no mention is given to what upstanding members of the CICA can do.
I wonder if Flaherty will address the income trust dealy. I’m going to guess that he will, but I wonder whether we’ll get the details of what was said.
