Finance committee  I was just saying that I want to be clear that it wasn't with regard to the monkey business at the CHIMP foundation that I saw ties to the Prime Minister's Office. The concerns I have with the Prime Minister's decisions are the way he handled the political activity audits of ch

Finance committee  This is an important issue, because we now know from official documents of the Rockefeller-funded organization called OPEN that it claims credit, in writing, under the name of the executive director of the association, for having, and I quote, “contributed greatly to ousting the

Finance committee  Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Thank you, members of the committee and fellow panellists. My name is Vivian Krause and I am here as a citizen. I would like to speak to the changes in the legislation that specifically affect registered charities. For most of my work life, I have bee

Information & Ethics committee  I can only speak to the particular area that I am familiar with, which is the use of funds via charities. When you look at the reporting in the 2015 federal election, the top advertisers, the ones that were all funded as part of the tar sands campaign, if you grouped them toget

Information & Ethics committee  I have no knowledge of how the CRA conducted any of its audits. The only thing I can tell you is that the charity at the centre of the fuss was Tides Canada. In their financial statements for 2016-17 they state that yes, the foundation was audited, but only for 2008-09. If true,

Vivian Krause

Information & Ethics committee  Well, it would be for any of the years wherein evidence was brought to the attention of the CRA about violations of the Income Tax Act. Just to sum up, the CRA did 42 audits. The recommendations were to shut down at least five—some say seven—of those charities. Why hasn't that h
