Do "most normal folks [you] know" also claim the Dividend Tax Credit when they file their taxes? If they do, by claiming that credit, they are claiming recognition for tax already paid on their behalf by the businesses they own interests in.
I'd be very surprised if any of your "normal folks" would refuse to claim the Dividend Tax Credit on their taxes, based on the dogma you put forth.
The money makes it to my pocket over time. But taxes are due at the time that the money is earned.The number they write on the cheque to the CRA. Not some shared burden with the corporation nonsense because that money never made it to your pocket.
