Justin Bender update

I don't know what reference this update refers to; the cited blog, or the External links section?

Are you confused? The external links below should help. Justin Bender has calculated the "total cost" of several Canadian-domiciled ETFs investing in international stocks, showing the effect of the two layers of withholding taxes[1].

Do article need section about US estate tax considerations?

Many FWF discussions, for example US estate taxes and Canadian mutual funds, discuss whether Canadian investors should structure their security selections with consideration to potential exposure to US estate taxes.

The four-component portfolio example puts US equity preferentially in the RRSP, but CCP chooses to put international equity preferentially in RRSP: http://canadiancouchpotato.com/2013/10/30/making-smarter-asset-location-decisions/ I'd like to see a discussion about this choice.

Any thoughts?
