NDP Revenue Critic Writes to Minister of Revenue

The NDP’s Revenue Critic, Pierre-Luc Dusseault’s Assistant forwarded to me a copy of a letter Mr. Dusseault sent to Liberal Minister of National Revenue, Dianne LeBouthillier.

He says:

As NDP National Revenue Critic, I wish to draw your attention to a troubling situation involving your department.

Mr. Dusseault points out FATCA:

Raises a number of privacy concerns about the personal information of our fellow citizens who also hold U.S. citizenship.

Mr. Dusseault concludes with:

Today several concerned citizens are looking to your government for answers about their privacy and the information they provided to Canada Revenue Agency. I wonder what your intentions are with respect to FATCA and how you plan to protect the private and personal information of Canadians.

Mr. Dusseault’s Assistant advised they expect a response to Order Paper Questions by March 5. He will wait for a response to those questions and to this letter before raising this issue in Question Period.
