"This is the kind of commitment to change that CATA was looking for when we developed our pre-Budget submissions to Federal Ministers this Fall," says Russ Roberts , Senior Vice President of Tax and Finance, CATAAlliance.

"We look forward to seeing the details of their plan. We hope the government effectively captures CATA's concerns and understands why our members object to the status quo. In the end, our support for the proposed actions by Minister Goodyear will lie in the details that have yet to be presented."

As Canada's largest high tech trade association, CATA will continue to assess the actions taken by the Government of Canada in relation to the Jenkins Panel. For more information on CATA's pre-budget submissions please visit: http://cata.ca/Media_and_Events/Press_Releases/cata_pr01261201.html
