CANADIAN FATCA LITIGATION UPDATE November 15, 2019:
Appellants Gwen and Kazia ask you for $30,793 in 30 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.
