FATCA IGA lawsuit filed by Vancouver Constitutional Litigator Joseph Arvay on 11 August 2014 in Canada Federal Court. See Claims and press release. Le 11 août 2014, les deux plaignantes, Ginny et Gwen, ont engagé une poursuite à la Cour fédérale du Canada contre le gouvernement du Canada et l’entente intergouvernementale FATCA. Listen to radio interview of ADCS Co-Chair and Legal Counsel.
UPDATE September 29, 2014
The cost of litigation for the first trial, which will be vigorously defended by the Government of Canada, is very expensive: approximately $1000/day for legal bills due on November 1, 2014 and February 1, May 1, and August 1, 2015.

Innocent Canadians will have a decision to make when your neighborhood bank enforces the FATCA law and turns you over to a foreign government:
You have options but not even a single option is pleasant.
They include using your Canadian-made retirement savings to pay costs of complying with or renouncing a foreign “obligation” to pay your “fair share” — or doing nothing, a logical option for some because there is nothing that many Canadians are financially able or willing to do.
Some tax advisors like Mr. Kevyn Nightingale insist that the FATCA agreement with Canada is “a good thing” and that “FATCA is not your enemy”.
The Alliance for the Defence of Canadian Sovereignty respectfully disagrees with Mr. Nightingale. Remember — threat of economic harm from a trading “partner” is the ONLY reason Canada, to its shame, signed off on the FATCA “agreement”.
With your help, we will keep working hard for you to end this bad FATCA agreement.
Consider also the risks our brave Plaintiffs have accepted. If Ginny and Gwen lose the lawsuit that they are making on behalf of all of us (including our international friends), they might — personally — have to pay a portion of the Government’s legal costs.
We don’t have these risks and it just takes a little bit of courage to donate.
