Canada cuts taxes for aerospace firms, names space advisory board

Imagine that. An election around the corner and the gov't gets around to doing some of the things its been promising to for years. Check out the names on the board - I'm guessing one or two might be familiar to most of us.

The Minister underlined the government’s support for aerospace and reiterated its commitment to supporting the manufacturing industry and establishing the right economic conditions for success. These included lowering taxes, cutting the corporate rate from over 22 percent in 2007 to 15 percent today and removing the federal capital tax.
Minister Moore also announced the creation of the Space Advisory Board, which will provide expert advice to the government on Canada’s role and future in space. The board includes experts from across the country who will help lead Canada’s space policy in the years ahead
