Thanks, Lynne Swanson. Cross-posting from MapleSandbox.ca:
The NDP’s Revenue Critic, Pierre-Luc Dusseault’s Assistant forwarded to me a copy of aletter Mr. Dusseault sent to Liberal Minister of National Revenue, Dianne LeBouthillier.
As NDP National Revenue Critic, I wish to draw your attention to a troubling situation involving your department.
Mr. Dusseault points out FATCA:
Raises a number of privacy concerns about the personal information of our fellow citizens who also hold U.S. citizenship.
Mr. Dusseault concludes with:
Today several concerned citizens are looking to your government for answers about their privacy and the information they provided to Canada Revenue Agency. I wonder what your intentions are with respect to FATCA and how you plan to protect the private and personal information of Canadians.
Mr. Dusseault’s Assistant advised they expect a response to Order Paper Questions by March 5. He will wait for a response to those questions and to this letter before raising this issue in Question Period.
