Mr. Speaker, the rules around charities and how they conduct themselves are long-standing. It is the job of CRA to ensure that charitable giving from charitable Canadians is used for charitable purposes.
In a recent message to all CRA employees, and I think this is important, the commissioner and deputy commissioner said:
To be clear, the process for identifying which charities will be audited for any reason is handled by the Charities Directorate alone and, like all our audit activities, is not subject to political direction.
Why is the NDP attempting to score cheap political points at the expense of professional public servants at the CRA?
