Is the Canada Revenue Agency Helping Build the Monument to Harperism?
Last night I told you how more and more decent Canadians are joining together to denounce the monstrous Memorial to the Victims of Communism.
The ghastly monument Stephen Harper is building to himself.
Just to pander to the ethnic vote, and stick another knife into the Supreme Court.
Well today it seems that the builders of that monstrosity may be getting some help from the Canada Revenue Agency.
The charity behind the campaign to erect a monument to the victims of communism has declared zero political activity in its five-year history, even though it originally told the Canada Revenue Agency some of its work would be political.
A review of Tribute to Liberty’s official filings with the CRA reveals a clear intention to engage in political activity. When asked if it planned to engage in political activities, it answered “Yes” in its 2009 application for charitable status.
For even though the absurdly named Tribute to Liberty charity made its intentions clear. And its ties to the bloody Harper regime couldn't be more obvious.
Tribute to Liberty has close links to senior Conservatives, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper delivered a speech last year at a fundraising dinner for the charity. Conservative senators have hosted and organized fundraisers for the monument – which in recent months has been criticized over its design and site – and Wladyslaw Lizon, a founding member of the group, is a Conservative MP.
The CRA seems to be giving it a monumental break:
The charity says it was audited by the CRA and that the agency concluded last year that all rules were followed. Citing privacy reasons, the CRA will not confirm an audit took place, and Tribute to Liberty declined to provide a copy of the report.
Buffing the asses of the friends of the Con regime, while going after its "enemies."
Dozens of Canadian charities have faced scrutiny since the 2012 Conservative budget set aside $8-million for CRA audits to determine whether they are following rules regarding political activity. The CRA has not published a list of the 60 charities it has identified for auditing. However, some of the groups that said they were audited were critical of government policy.
Like environmental groups and bird watchers...
A small group of nature lovers in southern Ontario enjoy spending weekends watching birds and other wildlife, but lately they're the ones under watch — by the Canada Revenue Agency.
And really what more can I say? Except that something is terribly wrong in this country.
And don't let that monster get away with it.
Or say what I said last night.
Defeat his ghastly un-Canadian regime.
And turn this foul monument into a monument to his victims...
