From Wednesday’s Toronto Star story, “Tories admit breaking rules”:

The party has also been forced to send belated 2005 tax receipts to some 3,000 delegates who attended the convention, with instructions on the complicated process required to retroactively claim the tax credit.

Oh, sweet karma! The 3,000 Canadians who most hate taxes are forced to deal with a tax credit on their delegate fees for the 2005 Conservative convention because their party either didn’t understand the tax laws or willfully ignored them, wishing they’d go away.

Sure, most of them will just pay their accountants and not think twice about it, but I just can’t read that without cracking a smile. Happy New Year, Conservatives!
