There are obvious issues with the temporary foriegn worker rules that need improvement but your lame attempt to link a Canadian family's right of inheritance with the entitlements of temporary foriegn vistors is just pure socialst entitlement rubbish. The rich don't get richer because they are allowed to keep their family assets. They just get to keep what their family earned.

We all want Temporary Foreign Workers to be recognized for their foreign credential, to be contrbutors to our society and to be compensated fairly for their skills and efforts. But NOBODY is entitled to the legacy that I worked a life time for on behalf of my children.

Silly Socialist. You can't always have other people's stuff. Sometimes you have to earn it.

Sorry Steve, but when you get to collect massive amounts of income without paying taxes on it you are getting richer. And when this only really effects those who are very rich the very rich are therefore getting richer.

The children of the rich (we're talking very rich) already get every advantage in life that they can possibly have. Travel, education, connections, etc. If you really believe people should earn their success then this minor dent in their silver spoon should not be what offends you. It should be that these kids get so much advantage based on the luck of who their parents were not through their own hard work. The money was earned by mom and/or dad and what the kids receive is income to them. Income should be taxed.

You should have to earn your own money.
