An interesting story is developing that may just expose yet another Liberal scandal. After weeks of waffling on the issue of income trusts, Finance Minister Ralph Goodale announced last Wednesday evening that he had decided to decrease the tax on dividends paid by corporations. Fine. As far as I'm concerned it's a good move. What is odd about this story however was a curiously large increase in the volume of these trusts traded Wednesday prior to Goodale's announcement.
As to be expected, there was a massive spike in trading Thursday morning as people reacted to the announcement. But this does not explain the large increase recorded Wednesday before the Finance Minister made his announcement at 6 p.m. Was information illegally leaked and acted upon? Curious indeed.
