For those who are unaware of Warren Buffet, he is an investor with more money than most countries, and he rose to fame quite quickly in political circles when he broached the topic of fair taxation. Particularly, he drew issue with his secretary being taxed at a far higher relative rate than he was.
Powerful, smart men who can take a stand on a fundamental issue with powerful, thoughtful ideas that can shake every person from every political persuasion from their slumber is something to be admired. You might disagree with him on his legal issues and him coming back to Canada, but he will bring a certain fight on a subject that needs some serious discussion.
