THANKS for today’s donation from a long-term supporter in Canada.
PatCanadian just said: “This appeal should go forward as the U.S. FATCA threatens the sovereignty of Canada and many other countries around the world. The U.S. acts as a bully in overstepping its borders with financial blackmail and imposing its laws extraterritorially.”
CANADIAN FATCA LITIGATION UPDATE November 11, 2019:
Appellants Gwen and Kazia ask you for $31,904 in 34 DAYS to make $45,000 December 15 payment for appeal of FATCA Federal Court decisions.
You can SEND DONATIONS by cheque, cash, PayPal (easiest) and transfers.
You are contributing to raising the money needed to pay the costs to litigate with the Government of Canada to prevent Canada from imposing the U.S. FATCA law directly on Canada and Canadians.
This case is NOT about “Americans” somehow “hanging out” or “hiding out” in Canada.
This case IS about one group of Canadian resident/citizens being disadvantaged by loss of Charter rights because of a foreign FATCA law imposed on Canada. Canada also signed on to an agreement which allows U.S. to define who should be disadvantaged. FATCA information is transferred from a country where the Canadian does live, to a country where he/she does NOT live.
Gwen and Kazia, two 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. Appellants and the Alliance for the Defence of Canadian Sovereignty — SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR MORE DETAILS (ADCS-ADSC), a registered Canadian non-profit Corporation, take not a penny for their time and services.
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.
We cannot guarantee that this litigation against the Government of Canada will be successful. However, if we do not continue this action, Canada will certainly lose.
