Credit card balance transfer fee deductible for tax?

Newbie to BT. Have a question about tax.
If I use the BT to invest in stocks, can I somehow deduct the BT fee from tax?
Would it be "Line 22100 - Carrying charges and interest expenses" or something else?

Thanks.

I would look up (i.e. Google) the CRA definitoin of Line 22100 and if that doesn't help try giving CRA a phone call. If you ask for a senior agent (and take down their particulars), they are usually very helpful.

I always do that, The BT fee is just an upfront interest you pay. The sooner you pay off the balance, the higher the equivalent rate you pay.
