Okay, Junior, But Why Let KPMG Off the Hook?
It's a pretty disgusting state of affairs. Under the Trudeau government, rich tax cheats get amnesty. It seems the Canadian Revenue Agency is only allowed to use the wheel, the rack and those thumb screws on the little people.
But what about KPMG, the accounting giant that seems to have masterminded the Isle of Man tax dodge scheme? When you raid a drug den you sweep up the addicts but you make damn sure to get the dealer because that's the one you most want, the trafficker. He's the one staring at real jail time.
So when are we going to see the KPMG tax partners in their navy pin stripes and brogues doing the perp walk before our news cameras? This is a criminal venture to make away with millions of tax dollars that belong in the federal treasury. That's a crime, a big crime - unless it's somehow not. Either way we need and deserve some answer, the sort of thing we would never expect to get from Harper. Oh, wait a minute. Never mind.
