Message from Chuck Davidson, President & CEO of Manitoba Chamber of Commerce regarding Carbon Tax Statement

RE: Canadian Chamber on Carbon Tax

I would urge you to read the following statement in regards to Carbon Pricing from Canadian Chamber of Commerce:
I believe in no way is the business community agreeing 100% with the current carbon tax approach that is being taken by the Federal Government.
In addition I am attaching the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce adopted policy resolution on carbon pricing.
If you have any further concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me at the Manitoba Chamber, cdavidson@mbchamber.mb.ca

The mission of Desjardins Financial Services Firm is to protect caisse members who obtain investment funds or financial planning services from one of its representatives. It does so by ensuring compliance of standard practices by its group savings representatives and financial planners and by investigating complaints made against them. As a result, when members contact their caisse to obtain mutual fund shares or financial planning services, they are directed to a Desjardins Financial Services Firm mutual fund representative or financial planner.

What will a Financial Advisor with Desjardins Financial Security offer: advising on investments, insurance, retirement and estate planning. They also specialize in advising successful business owners and incorporated professionals with tax efficient succession, retirement, insurance and estate planning strategies.
