Trust no one, part 2

Best of luck to Brent Fullard, founder of the Canadian Association of Income Trust Investors, who has worked tirelessly to keep the income trust decision in the spotlight for the last two years and who will now put his considerable energy, research, and knack for self-promotion into taking down Jim Flaherty in his new capacity as Liberal candidate for Whitby-Oshawa.

Just a few weeks ago, Fullard — a former head of capital markets at BMO — offered to donate $50,000 to charity if Flaherty would publicly debate the income trust decision with him. Now, it looks like Flaherty will be forced to debate Fullard. Could be worth a trip to Oshawa.
