Mr. Speaker, millions of Canadians volunteer and donate to charities and NGOs to help build a better Canada.
The non-profit and charitable sector employs millions and it is worth billions to our economy, at little cost to the taxpayer. Yet the Conservative government is engaged in a political witch hunt designed to muzzle and punish anyone who disagrees with it. If an NGO does not agree with the government, the government will undermine, audit and demonize the NGO and eliminate its funds.
Why is the government trying to systematically dismantle this vital part of Canadian society?
