As announced on another thread, there was a public meeting organized by Paul Dewar MP (NDP, Ottawa-Centre) to discuss FBAR and FATCA on the evening of March 26. I attended that meeting, along with at least two other Brockers (Deckard and Pacifica).
I am attaching in PDF format my two-page summary and impressions of the meeting. I delayed posting this until Deckard and Pacifica both had a chance to look at a draft and give me some comments on it. However this is my summary, from my own notes and memory, and they certainly are free to exapnd on or disagree with anything in it.
I am posting this on a new thread because the previous one seems to have wandered off into other areas, and I didn’t want this summary to get lost in the shuffle.
As mentioned in the report, Pacifica printed, and we distributed at the meeting, some business cards containing the Isaac Brock Society web address. I would like to offer a special welcome to the Brock Society website to any new visitors who are here by virtue of having picked up one of those cards.
