Tax Dodge Screening, and other films…

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.

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 9.29.33 AMIt 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.

Here are the details on the film:
The Great Canadian Tax Dodge
Fri. April 24, 7:30 pm
Eastminister Church, 310 Danforth Ave. (at Jackman, near Chester subway station) 
It is estimated that between 100 and 170 billion dollars leaves Canada every year, untaxed. Much of it is siphoned off to Canadian-made offshore tax havens. This film documents the birth of the Canadian Tax Fairness movement and examines the issue of tax avoidance, exposing the sophisticated corporate strategies and tax loopholes commonly used to legally avoid tax.
Speakers: Robin Benger, director of the film; Dennis Howlett, director of Canadians for Tax Fairness; Kelly Bowden, Communications Coordinator, Oxfam Canada
While on the subject of Cinema Politica Screenings, they are co-presenting a film at HotDocs, ON THE BRIDE’S SIDE which will be shown April 28, 30, and May 2nd.
