On clear symbols

I've theorized before that one of the most important tests as to how Canadians view their country over the next few years figures to involve public perceptions of Tim Hortons and other brands which have managed to tap into anti-elitist sentiment for the benefit of their own developing upper class.

So needless to say, I wholeheartedly endorse Ron Joyce's choice to put himself forward as the face of Canadian billionaires demanding public sympathy. And while the Cons may well share Joyce's belief Canada's tax system should be designed around the whims of those who have the most, I'd suspect there's reason for optimism that many Canadians may disagree.
