Avoiding Taxes

Most of the top multinational corporations in Canada paid zero taxes for the last five years. They legally transfer money to tax havens. This is legal. These corporations successfully lobby the Harper Government to provide them the loopholes. This gives them an unfair competitive advantage over corporations that do pay taxes. Because of their evasion, taxes for everyone else, including individuals, must be higher than they would have been. To make matter worse, Harper fired most of the investigators who go after tax cheating. Lobbying (bribery) is so efficient.
