One more thing to read

The Calgary Herald has started a weekly column by Wills and Estate specialist C. Here's a summary of his opening.

Good estate planning can be powerful. It can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in income taxes. It can avoid estate taxes. It can encourage children to pursue a university education. It can leave a lasting charitable impact on the community. It can keep a vacation home in the family for generations to enjoy. It can avoid family fights.

It can express the values, and often the quirks, of unique individuals who broadcast what they stand for through their estate plans.

The column will discuss both the good and the bad based on real-life examples.
Should be interesting.
