Use of a company owned vacation home is certainly a taxable benifit, no?

not for the Trudeau government, just look at Trudeau's use of a Caribbean private island and helicopter owned by a businessman that does business with the federal government

 

I can see Trudeau going "spend spend spend" loudly as he covers his ears with his hands to block out the criticisms

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..


Say, what's that mountain goat doing up here in the mist?

Yeah, everyone thought it was "sunny ways" turns out it was "spendy ways." Which I guess makes it sunny for some supporters who avail themselves of the largess.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Easily fixed when one puts one their rose tinted glasses (then all is roses) and pose for more selfies with the latest/coolest selection of socks.

He’s independently wealthy, or does he have a large trust fund or whatever it is him and Trudeau draw their money from?

But that aside, there’s no envy. There’s just a lot of disappointment that the minister has labelled small business owners as connivers and abusers of the tax system while he himself is held to a different standard. The optics of this are terrible.
