Have You Received a FATCA Letter? Were you born in the United States? Is one of your parents a U.S. citizen? Do you have a U.S. address? Do you spend winters or substantial time in U.S.?
All of these questions can instil terror in people.
Are you just learning the American Internal Revenue Service (IRS) wants you and your financial records? Welcome to your OMG moment shared by one million Canadians and their families.
On Canada Day, July 1, 2014, Canada surrendered its citizens, residents, laws, constitution and sovereignty to a foreign bully under the American Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) mandating Canadian financial institutions to seek out and report the financial records of Canadians born in the U.S. or with some other U.S. connection to the IRS via Canada Revenue Agency.
Have you received the FATCA letter yet? Be prepared for lawyers and/or accountants trying to terrorize you into filing tax returns with the IRS.
Learn from Toronto lawyer John Richardson how FATCA affects you and what this means for Canada and all Canadians. Find out what your rights are as a Canadian citizen and resident—and what your Canadian government surrendered to the Americans in an unprecedented law that overrides all Canadian laws for a foreign bully.
Know your options before you do anything.
WHO: John Richardson, B.A., L.L.B., J.D., is a Toronto lawyer and a member of the Ontario Bar.

Notes for others later ?
Some more UK press, an article about CBT appeared in the FT on 8 April 2015 and mentions the ADCS.
Still need to get the subject on UK TV and radio.
The meetings generally address the same content so we no longer post notes for individual presentations. Here is a link to an example:
