NDP British Columbia Caucus
Re: United States Internal Revenue Service; Enforcement policy against dual Canadian-US citizens
Letter (14 Oct 2011)


Twelve NDP Members of Parliament co-sign a three-page letter addressed to Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty and Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird. The letter concludes with five action points, a call for (1) exemption for Canadian citizens (2) true amnesty without penalty or forfeiture (3) noncompliance with FATCA (4) US focus on tax evasion only (5) formal defense of Canadians against unacceptable US threats. A closing sentence: “The potential of forfeiture of Canadian assets to the US threatens many Canadians’ income security and amounts to an unacceptable and unjustified transfer of wealth from Canada to the US.”
