The David Suzuki Foundation’s charitable status needs to be reviewed, the group EthicalOil.org says.
The group wrote to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) on Tuesday, saying there’s been “mounting evidence of political and partisan activity.”
Registered charities are prohibited from engaging in partisan activity.
I agree. I don’t think anyone ought to get charitable status. I think everyone should be taxed less, which would give us more money to give to whatever group(s) we want, and those groups would be free to say anything they like – political or not. But if we are going to have charities with a special set of rules that make it easier for them to raise money, then we have to enforce the rules.
