We already have Witnesses for our Canadian FATCA IGA lawsuit, but are now seeking a few more. If you are a Canadian who supports the major aim of the lawsuit (to return Canadian sovereignty back to Canada) and are interested, see below:
The May 31 2017 Canada Federal Court Order gives us 60 days to comply by providing additional information to Government as part of our lawsuit.
This delay may give us time to provide to the Court additional evidence, from new witnesses, of harms caused by the Canadian FATCA IGA enabling legislation. If:
— You are a Canadian resident (and possibly a U.S. person as well) who has experienced difficulty, uncertainty, or perceived risk of personal harm, in acting as an executor of the estate of a U.S. person in Canada, or you are someone who has refused to act as an executor for the estate of a U.S. person in Canada because of the risk of harm; or
— You are a Canadian citizen and resident who the U.S. deems a U.S. citizen, and you would like to renounce your U.S. citizenship and tax citizenship, but cannot because you would have to pay a U.S. “exit tax” because of the value of your assets (see link) — or you renounced and DID pay an exit tax; or
— You are a Canadian citizen and resident and a U.S. citizen who had your bank account information turned over to CRA/IRS and the U.S. IRS has now contacted you about your account.
AND you are willing to provide a written, public (your name will be disclosed) affidavit to Canada Federal Court explaining your situation,
– please contact me at Stephen.Kish.Chair@adcs-adsc.ca
The Federal Court order asks for a list of all specific harms caused by the Canadian FATCA IGA enabling legislation, that contradict our Canadian Charter rights and nation’s sovereignty (our Claim) that have been or are certain to be experienced by our three Plaintiffs but also by “anyone else” (i.e., I interpret this to mean other Canadian residents).
We already have Witness affidavits detailing harms that cannot be disclosed publicly at the present time. But if you have experienced a harm or know that you will experience a harm related to the above legislation, that you suspect that we might not have addressed, AND ARE A CANADIAN CITIZEN AND RESIDENT WILLING TO FILE A WRITTEN AFFIDAVIT TO FEDERAL COURT THAT WILL DISCLOSE YOUR NAME, then please contact me.
From a practical point of view that I have to deal with, making suggestions is fine, but we need to provide the Court with written affidavits of harm in which your name will be disclosed. If you can’t disclose, perhaps you know someone who might. The time opportunity for this is short.
@Red Cabbage, re;
“Slaves get benefits and services…”
“Benefits”, “services”? What? I don’t want to completely derail this thread, but that statement goes beyond hyperbole even if we were to consider slavery across different time periods and societies.
“Can you think of any other group on the planet that has to pay the government just for the privilege of existing, and yet receives no services in return? (and no representation)”
Right, some suffer worse than slaves:
Somewhere I read that they were slaughtered for failing to pay a tax of $50,000 (equivalent to around 3 million of today’s US dollars). Can’t find the article now though.
@Embee, yes, you’re right of course. It’s the international elites. The US is just the prime mover in the program, as befits the global hegemon.
@Badger, I don’t see what’s hyperbolic about the statement. Food, housing and medical care are comprehensive services that the slave receives. Many slaves who were interviewed after slavery ended in the US said that they missed slavery, in part because they ate so much better as slaves than they did after they were freed.
What is the difference between a slave and a wage slave in a dreary dead-end job, who has no realistic prospect of ever bettering his or her life, can’t criticize the boss for fear of getting fired, and has to constantly worry about making ends meet? The slave, by contrast has secure employment and a full stomach.
And we have nothing but obligations with no benefits. We aren’t even at the status of milk cows, because they, too, at least get fed!
Let’s put this slavery issue away. As far as I know, the IRS (the slaveowner,as you put it) has never initiated any action against a slave (meaning ACAs) without the express consent of a slave or his legal representative.
I’ve asked this question before but no one answers.
HAS ANYONE ON THE IBS FORUM BEEN CONTACTED BY THE IRS WITHOUT INITIATING CONTACT FIRST SINCE FATCA HAS BEEN ENACTED?
“HAS ANYONE ON THE IBS FORUM BEEN CONTACTED BY THE IRS WITHOUT INITIATING CONTACT FIRST SINCE FATCA HAS BEEN ENACTED?”
How restrictive is your question? If you allow conscripted agents of the IRS (e.g., foreign financial institutions), the answer to your question is, “Yes, many, many have.”
You know what I am asking. Without your invitation,has the IRS knocked on your door and demanded compliance,and I am not talking the requisite bank forms either.
As a former slave who has left the plantation for good , I see two alternatives and depending where I live.One, in Canada, ignore the banks and let them do what they want. Two,elsewhere, pay the extortion and go no further but just enough to open bank accounts.
Am I missing something here.For the moment, forget ethical issues and fearmongering BS by those looking for profit.
Robert Ross asks: ” I’ve asked this question before but no one answers.

The answer is: not that anyone is saying anything about. However, should you encounter such specimen of unicorn, please corral and pass on to ADCS-ADSC pronto.
