CANADIAN FATCA LITIGATION UPDATE December 7, 2019:
You are contributing to raising the money needed to pay the legal costs to litigate with the Government of Canada — to prevent Canada from imposing the U.S. FATCA law directly on Canada and Canadians.
The Alliance for the Defence of Canadian Sovereignty and Gwen and Kazia have raised $24,612 in this funding round. We ask you for $20,388 in EIGHT DAYS to make $45,000 December 15 payment for appeal of FATCA Federal Court decisions.
You can DONATE by cheque, cash, PayPal (easiest) and transfers.
Gwen and Kazia, two brave Canadian citizens having no meaningful relationship with the U.S., are appealing on your behalf two Federal Court decisions to the Canadian Court of Appeal.
The grounds for appeal will include violations against their autonomy (Charter section 7), privacy (8) and equality (15) as well as arguments that the ruling was improperly based on the finding that the Income Tax Act is primarily regulatory in nature, and that factors such as the relationship between Canada and United States were not properly dealt with. Fleshed out details of appeal grounds will be provided in the Factum, likely early next year.
Gwen and Kazia ask for your help in paying for the legal costs of the appeal. If you feel that FATCA IGA laws harm you or someone that you know, PLEASE DONATE.
Appellants need to raise three installments of $45,000 on December 15, February 15, and April 15, and will apply for approximately $50,000 funding from the Canadian Court Challenges Program.

Justice Mactavish in ruling against us said that it is “important” to avoid consequences threatened by the U.S. But we say not at the expense of our Charter rights.Canadians and International supporters: Please help end one of the FATCA compliance laws that impact on all of our countries.
