John Richardson – CBC Interview on #FATCA – January 19, 2016

This is also discussed on the Isaac Brock Society. Stephen Kish included the following on his “ADCS Funding update post“:

 

LISTEN TO THE EIGHT MINUTE LONG CBC RADIO INTERVIEW WITH ADCS LEGAL COUNSEL JOHN RICHARDSON:

JUNE 25, 2015: Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau sends pre-election letter to a Canadian citizen Ms. Lynne Swanson, saying: “The Government of Canada has the responsibility to stand up for its citizens when foreign governments are encroaching on its rights. We believe that the [FATCA] deal reached between Canada and the U.S. is insufficient to protect the affected Canadians.”

January 20, 2016: Mr Trudeau now heads Government of Canada. We were waiting a long time for the press to take notice, but CBC finally compares the pre-election statements of Mr. Trudeau with his post-election FATCA behaviour. Interviewer asks our Legal Counsel: “Were you encouraged with what the Liberals were saying?” John responds: “Yes, certainly grounds for optimism…” and then he reads (like reading scripture) the Prime Minister’s June 25 statement that the FATCA IGA does not protect Canadian citizens.

January 21, 2016: Conservatives, Liberals, our lawsuit continues. Listen again to the radio interview.
