Canadian govt is mucking with the Trust Tax status I think changes come into play in 2011. Depending on Oil/gas prices could result in some lower distributions, but will result in trusts paying more taxes. Some canroys may be prime targets for M&A activity and consilidation could be in the cards. Bottomline right now is a good time to buy, look for ones that have relatively low pay out ratios, they are more likely to be able to sustain distro in period of low prices and future if tax rules change.
