August 5th, 2014 - 12:26pm
OTTAWA - Amidst the ongoing Conservative crackdown on Canadian charities, NDP National Revenue Critic Murray Rankin (Victoria) wrote today to James Rajotte, chair of the House of Commons Finance Committee, to request special summer meetings to investigate the matter.
“Canadians are increasingly concerned that the Canada Revenue Agency is being misused to target and silence voices that the Conservatives disagree with,” said NDP National Revenue Critic Murray Rankin (Victoria). “As MPs we must act to protect the important advocacy role played by Canadian charities.”
