Question about Tax Deductions on Smith Maneuver

I am thinking of doing the smith maneuver, which let's me borrow money and invest into eligible dividends stocks. I can write off the interest I paid for the loan. Can I write the interest off against my normal income bracket or will it have to be against the dividends tax bracket?

Just trying to figure out if I can choose where my tax deductions go or if its fixed.

Interest expense deductions are declared on Line 22100 - Carrying charges and interest expenses. It'll be taken off after total income had been calculated (i.e after all sources of income have been added)
