Busted

Compare the following from CTV News:

"The hot rumour is that the government's decision on the income trust issue is that they are going to make a more level playing field by reducing the degree of double taxation which currently exists on dividends by increasing the dividend tax credit."
(3:59 p.m., up on Stockhouse, a popular internet site for investors)

"We're going to help to level up the playing field as between corporations and trusts and we're going to be doing that by ending double taxation on dividends."
(around 6 p.m., Finance Minister Goodale).

Smell a rat?
