“You have to either leave it alone or fix it,” Mr. Flaherty shrugged Wednesday.

Post script: Any one with half a brain could have told Flaherty his income trust decision would end in disaster. The probability of that was 100%.

Flaherty`s shrug about says it all as that was all the respect that he could afford the investor alright.

A shrug is synonymous with "who cares" , "so what" , "shit happens".

Thanks again Jim.

Hey Dr. Mike:

You must be a mind reader, as here’s how the article also describe Jim “Water off my back” Flaherty’s concern over nuking $35 billion of Canadians wealth:

“Mr. Flaherty knew it wouldn't be a popular decision in some quarters, but he was hardly exercised. After his announcement, he went straight into a meeting with the Tory caucus and, along with Mr. Harper, informed the group of the new rules.”
