And it’s amazing how Morneau remembered he had a French villa. I mean it’s easy to forget that sort of thing, so I can see how that’d happen to a finance minister.
In the interests of accuracy (not trying to pick on you, Mike!) he had disclosed the villa earlier - perhaps when he first filled out c-of-i forms? - it's just the wrinkle of the manner of it's ownership is coming to light now..
I see two things going on here - one justifiable, the other, not so much..firstly, there's the perception that Mr.Morneau is availing himself of tax breaks that aren't really available to the rest of us - a fair criticism; the second bit is that he is an independently wealthy man, so I think that there's a bit of envy at work over the spoils of that wealth..
