The opposition candidates for the 2015 Canadian Federal Election are busy finding office space, gathering volunteers and developing strategies for keeping the seats they have and expelling the Conservative incumbents from those they don’t. Let’s give them some help!
If opposition candidates were Members of Parliament during the past couple of years they probably know about the FATCA IGA that the Conservative government signed with the Americans. It’s been a year and a half since the deed was done and they could probably use a refresher. If they have not been sitting in Parliament they will need to learn from scratch about us and the Conservative sell-out of our Charter rights and financial privacy.
On the continuing page is the cover letter that I have sent to the opposition candidates in my own riding. Attached to the letter is a link to a re-working of my “Introduction to FATCA” that some of you may have read here at Brock. This current version is specifically tailored to an audience of Canadian opposition party candidates.
Please feel free to make use of these materials however you wish in your correspondence with candidates in your own ridings. We can help them win and they can help us regain our status as 1st-class Canadians!
