The Great Canadian Tax Dodge, a film I did research for is being screened this Friday in Toronto at 7:30. The event is being organized by the Danforth chapter of Cinema Politica. The director of the film, Robin Benger, and other speakers will be present for the film.
It is sure to be a great event, but if you can’t make it out, you can watch the doc online.
The film was the subject of a blog post I wrote earlier this year that includes links to a variety of links to other reporting on tax evasion and off-shore banking.
