Media advisory - Halloween income trust fiasco one year later... - Midwest American family the first to take on the Canadian government under NAFTA

    OTTAWA, Oct. 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Marvin and Elaine Gottlieb's Halloween
nightmare with the Conservative government's decision to tax Canadian income
trusts in the energy sector is far from over. Now it may be the Conservative
government experiencing a Halloween surprise.
    The Chicago couple will be in Ottawa tomorrow, Tuesday, October 30, 2007
to give notice of a challenge under NAFTA Chapter 11 against the Government of
Canada. Their claim is based on the fall-out of Finance Minister Jim
Flaherty's surprise Halloween 2006 decision to eliminate income trusts on the
heels of the Conservative government's pledge to leave them alone.
    Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb will hold a news conference at 10:30 am in
Room 130-S, Centre Block, Parliament Hill, Ottawa.


    DATE:     Tuesday, October, 30, 2007

    PLACE:    Room 130-S, Centre Block, Parliament Hill, Ottawa
