Paul Martin’s sons to testify

The Quebec daily newspaper, Le Soleil is reporting this morning that Paul Martin’s sons will be called to testify before the Standing Commitee on Finance this October.

Their involvement in Martin’s company, Canadian Steamship Lines is being called into question, specifically the profitability of using Barbados as a tax haven.

CSL has been the greatest source of Paul Martin’s significant wealth and we’ve always known that our Prime Minister pays his corporate taxes to a foreign country, at a tax rate of about 2%, to avoid paying into social programs as a corporate citizen. Now his sons, which hold the company in a “blind trust” have been called before the committee to answer questions its questions concerning CSL.
