REVEALED: Liberals lied about Conservatives' Canada Revenue "witch hunt" audits

Brian LilleyArchive

The Liberal party, liberal media and liberal charities are still trying to sell a lie about how Conservatives were targeting their enemies using Canada Revenue Agency to conduct audits of certain charities.

So far, there’s no proof of that but that isn’t stopping a group of environmental charities from putting pressure on the Trudeau government to stop the audits that began under the Conservatives in 2012.

Why? Well, because there are rules in place regarding how much time and donated money can be devoted to strictly political activities. Considering that charities receive and can then extend to donors, certain benefits for their donations, it’s not unreasonable to expect that they should also have some responsibility to operate within the rules.

A snapshot of some of the issues that have been uncovered with audits so far reveal some very political activity ranging from supporting terrorist groups to no evidence that the charities actually did anything at all with the money they collected.

The information we received through an access to information request shows that there were 60 charities (out of 86,000 in Canada) that were identified to be audited in a four year period.

Does that sound like a political witch hunt as some charities claim, or due diligence of the kind that Canadian taxpayers should expect from their government?

How you answer that question will likely depend on whether or not you’ve been given the facts and the other side of the story, as I’ve just laid out here.

You shouldn’t be worried if you have nothing to hide. I wish that was truebut it isn’t. There are way too many examples of vicious audits by our revenue agency and I’m aware of several where Judges admonished them for over zealous attacks on tax payer’s.

What ever happened to Harper’s hidden agenda? Still waiting for that to be reveled. I have always wondered if an agenda is hidden how do you know it exists? But lets reflect on Mr Trudeau’s comments regarding which country he admired, being China. Because they had a dictatorship. I think we are starting to see Mr. Trudeau is trying to form his own dictatorship right here in Canada. And the MSM is complicit in his endeavors.

Always the same crap with lefties no matter what, anything implemented under PM Harper has got to be evil & must be destroyed. Just watch Trudeau reinstate these charities’ status ASAP.
Charities should not be political & my donations would dry up very quickly if that was the case with any of the ones I support.

Oddly enough in the U.S. it was the I.R.S. that was being investigated for targeting Republicans, A few weeks ago Donald Trump claimed he was being targeted because he was a Christian. The reason this was of interest to me is because someone I know who lives a very modest life (Doesn’t own a home or a car) was just audited. I thought it was a little unusual and my only suspicion was this person could have been targeted due to they give generously to their church. This person who had their taxes prepared by H&R Block was told they owed under $20 which H&R block covered because of their own error. I know it is speculative but when I saw these events unfolding I couldn’t help but wonder if it happens in the U.S. how can we be sure the same tricks aren’t happening elsewhere.

It would be nice if an islamic terrorist stabbed a liberal MP or two.

Fraser McBurney,

Exactly! My last audit was for giving, ironically, more to charity than in the past. This was found money to a community endowment fund. They would have still received it without tax credit, but I thought what the hell, regressive so get their break this way, so I’m entitled to the entitlement.

I am now winding down my Alberta and Canada charities and focussing on International charities that provide no receipts like C.O.P.E. After all, the Non-Democrats of Alberta and Junior will take care of their needy without private charity.

Fortunately, God blessed me with that choice along with being able to help offspring to re-locate to B/C for work. Those that are not as fortunate as me should focus on your family as much as possible, they are your greatest charity and our Regressive governments of Alberta and Canada do not care about your family, only you do.

Liberals and lies are two synonymous words.

Well of course, left wing corruption should go about unfettered, they are too good for rules.

Two comments on one post which is probably forbidden, BUT Justin’s Diary, you are right on.

Fraser – if we don’t have any registered charities, how will the liberals distribute our money to the friends that helped them destroy Canada?
commented 2016-03-15 18:06:52 -0400
Here is a solution to charities
If you want to give money GIVE MONEY that’s it
Stop all charities if it’s a good cause give money just like us REBELS who gave money to help start THE REBEL MEDIA.
Just give your money if you like the cause government should get out of the charity business.
Enlightened Conservative

Dear Diary;
It’s really annoying when these pickles pop up (oh, take a break Gerald) and interfere with my sunny days. As part of my tough-guy persona, I made an election commitment to pass a law that would sanction Russia’s human-rights abusers. Such a law would freeze the assets and ban visas for Russia’s human-rights violators. All of us were going to be in on it, Stevie and even Uncle Tom, we all decided that it would be a good thing. But that was back when I thought that I was just going to become leader of the opposition, before my people appointed me as Dear Leader, and if there’s one thing I don’t like in my foie gras, it’s polonium-210.
So now I’ve got Stephie’s press secretary, Chantal Gagnon, spinning lines like “re-engaging” with the Ruskies and using expressions like “reviewing criteria” and “carefully considering options” which, of course, is all diplomatic blabbering which means that there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell that I’m going through with this. Besides, Stephie really enjoys these cocktail parties at the Russian embassy puts on.
Just as I was trying to figure out a diversion to hide this particular broken promise, it’s ironic that I found an ally already in the Human Rights business who swung into action at exactly the right moment. Renu Mandhane, the Ontario Chief Rights Commissioner, was discovering that there wasn’t much business for her kangaroo courts to deal with real human rights violators, so she decided to take it upon herself to issue a threat to employers who might impose a workplace dress code that she herself might disapprove of.
Well, naturally that got all the freedom and liberty loving right-wingers into a hissy-fit, throwing tantrums, having conniptions and so on. As I’m learning from my dear, sweet friend Sean, it’s common knowledge, and everyone knows, that it’s only all governments, at all levels, from our beloved United Nations down, with all their authority and arms and agencies, who are the sole oracles of all wisdom and only they alone can be relied upon to know and do what’s best for all citizens.
But for me, the point is that my little thing with the Russians has now dropped completely off the news radar. Another mission accomplished.

Bet Suzuki’s ‘charity’ is under investigation. AND HE WON’T LIKE THAT. I love that video with that wizened old environmentalist walking in the woods with Dalton McGuinty, during Dalton’s last election campaign, having a very lofty, professorial talk about the great policies of the Ontario Liberal Government in making our climate cleaner by their Green Energy Act. Ah, it makes me all warm and fuzzy. No political interference to see her folks move right along.

Who are the 60 charities audited? How many of them are related to the environment?
commented 2016-03-15 16:32:09 -0400
You shouldn’t be worried if you have nothing to hide. But on the other hand, if you are doing something wrong, then the government should be doing what they are paid to do, and that is govern. But I’m pretty sure that anything will go in the Justie’s corrupt liberal world.

«there were 60 charities (out of 86,000 in Canada) that were identified to be audited in a four year period»

That sounds like way too little.

The Canadian Revenue Service is also a department independent of the government similar to the Bank of Canada or the judiciary. Further, it is staffed by Public Service Union personnel, who were anti-Harper and worked against him while he was in power, and would have done little to assist his political agenda. So it is very likely that the C.R.A. acted professionally in choosing the 60 charities to audit, and independent of the Conservative Government.

The question becomes, why are these charities worried about a professional C.R.A. tax audit? As an individual, I have been audited twice, and had no concern about either audit because I had the evidence to verify my returns. This is probably the same for others on this web-site. There is only one reason to be concerned about a tax audit…that you are guilty of breaking the law and know you have deliberately done so.

Finally, it will be telling how those organizations broke the law if Junior tries to intervene in an independent process on their behalf, and which organizations he intervenes for.
