There is nothing to the Income Trusts so-called leak....
I've worked on Bay Street in the past and I've worked on Wall Street in New York. It's hard to believe that Ralph Goodale or Paul Martin had anything to do with a leak about the taxation of income trusts. This sort of thing happens all the time in the financial markets - stocks rise right before a merger attempt. No matter how hard you try to keep things totally secret, you just can't. In this case, the fact that Goodale was making an announcement might have been enough to trigger the market.
Certainly the timing of the announcement leaves much to be desired. I guess the RCMP wanted to signal how they want people to vote.
No question, it's good new for the Conservatives. But, sorry, I just don't think there is anything to this story.
