Unbelievable Hypocrisy: CRA Says it Can’t Recover Tax Penalties in Lichtenstein Due to OUR Privacy Laws

While watching the CTV news at 11, I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard the claim by CRA that taxes due from Canadians holding secret bank accounts in Lichtenstein prior to the signing of the DTA were uncollectable due to Canadian privacy laws. You can hear this for yourself

Kevin Newman interviewed a Lichtenstein official for this short clip; there will be a segment on W5 this Saturday at 7 pm. The whistleblower on the 100 Canadians with Lichtenstein accounts will be featured.

    I was able to view it, using Chrome…

    Okay, so a news story involving 100 Canadians makes the news, but not something affecting 1 million Canadians? So those particular 100 Canadians get protection but 1 million of us won’t, just because we happened to be born in the US, or our parents were?

    Thanks Noble Dreamer. For some reason, I can’t load it. It may be a problem with my computer because I also couldn’t load the link Just Me tweeted.

    I’m glad I was in bed last night when this aired. Otherwise, I’m sure I would have had a sleepless night from anger just hearing your report on it.

    I will try to view this later today and send something off to Flaherty and Schoom (again!).
