Farmers are not cheats

I agree with (your stories and editorials about changes to Canada’s corporate taxation rules) 100 percent.

We are not trying to cheat the system. There have been huge investments on behalf of government and producer groups in the past 10 years or so to start working towards succession planning, and after all the money has been spent and all the planning has been done, the Liberal government is calling us “cheats.”

We have been doing our best to try to buy the family farm from our parents and not just take it and leave them with no retirement plan, and now the Liberal government wants to end it all.

I pray our words have an impact and that these proposed tax changes are given another look.
