It's Time for Stephen Harper to Get Tough on Tax Havens

Stephen Harper's decision to protect those who use international tax havens to evade paying their taxes is inexplicable and unacceptable. Canadian companies should be good global citizens paying their fair share of taxes in countries where they operate, not hiding behind tax shelters and shell companies.

Yet the government will not even provide the Parliamentary Budget Officer with the data necessary to calculate an official figure.
