An overwhelming 72 per cent of baby boomers in B.C. want to know exactly where their charitable dollars are going before they hand over their cash, according an Ipsos Reid survey for BMO Harris private banking released Wednesday.
That's only slightly below the national average of 74 per cent -- heavily skewed by an 86-per-cent response rate in Quebec.
However, just five per cent of British Columbians surveyed said that the recent federal elimination of capital gains tax on publicly traded stocks had encouraged them to give more."
