David Suzuki – Complaint Made Against Suzuki To Taxation Agency – Charitable Status In Jeopardy – 2012 04 25
David Suzuki Foundation
is the target of a complaint
to the Canada Revenue Agency
According to the complaint,
David Suzuki Foundation should have its
CHARITABLE STATUS REVOKED
or otherwise be SANCTIONED
In 2011, David Suzuki Foundation OVER-STEPPED ITS LEGAL BOUNDS AS A CHARITY after its famous founder endorsed Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Green Energy Plan in a VIDEO, critics have charged.
The video on the Liberal Party website, which showed David Suzuki and McGuinty walking through Vancouver’s Stanley Park, was REMOVED from the Liberal Party web-site on September 18th, 2011, following COMPLAINTS from Wind Concerns Ontario, a citizens’ group opposing wind turbines.
In the VIDEO, Suzuki praises McGuinty’s green initiatives, saying …
« I happen to applaud the future he’s leading us into. »
Coincidentally, in 2010, David Suzuki Foundation RECEIVED BETWEEN 100,000 AND 250,000 DOLLARS from The Ontario Trillium Foundation.
PAY-OFFS under the guise of GOVERNMENT GRANTS to Environmental Terrorist Organizations is NOTHING NEW for Trillium.
Trillium is an agency of the Government of Ontario, and operates as a FINANCIAL SHIELD to provide direct funding to Environmental Terrorist Organizations.
Under Canada Revenue Agency rules, REGISTERED CHARITIES ARE FORBIDDEN TO PUSH A PARTISAN POLITICAL STANCE.
As a result of his POLITICAL INTERFERENCE in the Ontario General Election, DAVID SUZUKI WAS FORCED TO QUIETLY STEP DOWN from the Board of Directors of David Suzuki Foundation during summer of 2011.
But Suzuki and the foundation are « one-in-the-same », insisted John Laforet, President of Wind Concerns Ontario.
According to Laforet ―
« David Suzuki is the primary spokesperson for the foundation. This is a charitable foundation. They’ve RECEIVED MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT OF ONTARIO, and now they’re turning and supporting Ontario’s Premier [ McGuinty ]. »
Laforet went on to say that Canada Revenue Agency should look « seriously » into Suzuki’s political endorsements and interference.
Gregory Thomas of Canadian Taxpayers Federation agreed.
Given Suzuki’s close ties to the foundation, he said, there could be a CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST with his endorsement of McGuinty.
On April 13th, 2012, Suzuki officially announced he had stepped down from the board of directors of his organization, alleging that he wanted to shield it from partisan attacks ―
« I want to speak freely without fear that my words will be deemed too political, and harm the organization of which I am so proud. I am keenly aware that some governments, industries and special interest groups are working hard to silence us. They use threats to the Foundation’s charitable status in attempts to mute its powerful voice on issues that matter deeply to you and many other Canadians. »
Suzuki’s decision follows the Government of Canada’s decision to INVESTIGATE Environmental Terrorist Organizations.
The Government of Canada has allocated 8 million dollars for the Canada Revenue Agency to ensure that NO MORE THAN 10 PER CENT OF FUNDS IS BEING SPENT ON ADVOCACY.
The Government of Canada DOES NOT want its society to continue living in the 9|11 Era of Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Profit-Hungry Terrorism !
Complaint About David Suzuki To Canada Revenue Agency
On April 23th, 2012, David Suzuki Foundation became THE TARGET OF A COMPLAINT TO THE CANADA REVENUE AGENCY ( CRA ), just days after its namesake co-founder stepped down amid heightened tensions between environmental charities and the Government of Canada.
EthicalOil.org, a non-profit organization that promotes oil from Canada and other democracies, sent a COMPLAINT to Canada Revenue Agency asking it to INVESTIGATE whether David Suzuki Foundation is BREAKING RULES THAT PERTAIN TO POLITICAL ACTIVITY.
The COMPLAINT comes on the heels of the Government of Canada’s WARNING that it will keep a much closer eye on the BLURRY LINE BETWEEN CHARITY AND POLITICS, arming the tax department with 8-MILLION-DOLLARS to enforce the rules.
Registered charities are allowed to devote only a SMALL FRACTION of their resources to POLITICAL ACTIVITY, although they can NEVER BE PARTISAN.
EthicalOil.org said in its 44-page COMPLAINT, which was drafted by Calgary-based JSS Barristers ―
« If you find the Suzuki Foundation is in contravention of the CRA rules, then we request that you consider whether the Suzuki Foundation should have its CHARITABLE STATUS REVOKED or otherwise be SANCTIONED. »
The COMPLAINT relates to David Suzuki Foundation’s activities over the past year, and the bulk of the COMPLAINT outlines allowable political activity such as letter-writing campaigns to federal politicians or blog posts urging the Government of Canada to change its environmental policies.
Jamie Ellerton, Executive Director of EthicalOil.org, said those activities point to the group’s « politicization » and that Canada Revenue Agency should « determine whether or not they are crossing the 10 per cent political threshold and VIOLATING CHARITIES LAW ».
The COMPLAINT also says David Suzuki Foundation received funding from the British government and that the purpose of the funding may have been to « forward the policies of the United Kingdom Government on climate change in Canada ».
Ellerton said the COMPLAINT was faxed to David Suzuki Foundation, but the organization did not confirm receipt or provide comment.
Ellerton said that organizations should FORGO CHARITABLE STATUS — and all the economic benefits it brings — if they want THE FREEDOM TO BE POLITICAL ―
« What we’re looking to accomplish [ in issuing a complaint to the revenue agency ] is to ENSURE TAX-PAYERS AREN’T SUBSIDIZING THE POLITICAL ACTIVITY of the David Suzuki Foundation. »
Other portions of the COMPLAINT accuse David Suzuki Foundation of ENGAGING IN PROHIBITED PARTISAN ACTIVITY and point to the following as two examples ―
• A blog post titled « Ontario Liberal platform maintains green energy focus », which was published two days after the 2011 provincial election was called last fall; and
• A July 2011 Toronto Star article that reported Mr. Suzuki had endorsed Premier Dalton McGuinty and was « urging Ontarians to re-elect » the Liberal leader.
EthicalOil.org also mounted a FORMAL COMPLAINT against Environmental Defence in March 2012.
Other environmental groups have reacted in order to protect themselves.
ForestEthics Canada last week announced it would SPLIT INTO TWO so one segment can devote all its time to opposing projects such as the Northern Gateway oil pipeline.
ForestEthics Canada was never a registered charity itself, but its donors received tax receipts through its former UMBRELLA GROUP, TIDES CANADA.
It is known in at least one instance that the Vancouver address for Tides USA, as reported to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service by the Hewlett Foundation, is EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE ADDRESS of David Suzuki Foundation ― 2211 WEST FOURTH AVENUE, SUITE 219.
DANGEROUS, HYPOCRITICAL, and INSATIABLE
David Suzuki is the Non-Expert Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Fund-Raiser, Alliance-Puppet-Master, Psychedelic-Hippie, and Entertainer who founded and operated David Suzuki Foundation.
As a broadcaster for PUBLIC TELEVISION, Suzuki has perpetually been in an ENORMOUS CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST between being a supposedly neutral television personality working for a government-owned public broadcasting corporation, and operating a PARTISAN MILITANT ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.
David Suzuki Foundation is supposed to be a BENEVOLENT Non-Partisan, Nation-Wide, Tax-Exempt, Registered-Charity, Non-Profit, Environmental Organization.
Among its many Enviro-Terrorist activities, David Suzuki Foundation CONSPIRES TO IMPOSE THE NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, AND MALICIOUS PROHIBITION AGAINST PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS.
Moreover, Suzuki seeks to IMPOSE A NATIONAL PROHIBITION AGAINST ALL PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS.
Moreover, Suzuki DESPISES the Golf Industry !
Suzuki has also stated that it DOES NOT WANT ANY PROHIBITION EXCEPTIONS FOR THE GOLF INDUSTRY.
DANGEROUS, HYPOCRITICAL, and INSATIABLE Suzuki DEMANDS NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION for the Golf Industry.
David Suzuki himself made the following statement in 2008 ―
« [ The new prohibition legislation in Ontario ] allows GOLF COURSES to continue using pesticides and gives power to the Ontario minister of the environment to allow other exceptions, a potentially DANGEROUS LOOP-HOLE. »
On its web site, David Suzuki Foundation has also made the following statement about GOLF EXCEPTIONS on October 15th, 2008 ―
« If provincial prohibitions exempt GOLF COURSES, as proposed in the discussion paper, MUNICIPALITIES need clear authority to RESTRICT PESTICIDE USE on GOLF COURSES within their boundaries to better protect public health and the environment. »
Suzuki-Lunatics want to DESTROY the Golf Industry just as they DESTROYED the Professional Lawn Care Industry
Suzuki-Lunatics have called on ALL PROVINCES to EXTEND THEIR PESTICIDE BANS TO GOLF COURSES.
UNSATIATED Suzuki-Lunatics called on all provinces to EXTEND THEIR PESTICIDE BANS TO GOLF COURSES.
According to Non-Expert Suzuki-Lunatics, Quebec’s Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION is still the best model for regulating pest control products.
Under existing Quebec legislation, GOLF COURSES must submit RIDICULOUS PESTICIDE-USE REDUCTION PLANS every three years.
Suzuki’s SUBVERSIVE CONSPIRACIES DESTROYED the Professional Lawn Care Industry in several jurisdictions across Canada.
Suzuki is leaving a LEGACY OF DESTROYED ECONOMIES, LOST JOBS AND HARDSHIP FOR PEOPLE, WEAKENED COMMUNITIES, and FRIGHTENED CHILDREN.
It is believed that Suzuki ought to be INVESTIGATED by Taxation Agencies in both Canada and the United States.
ANY information concerning the activities of David Suzuki should be recorded and relayed to business, fund-raising, government, and taxation agencies in order to assist with investigation.
Demand a REVOCATION of Suzuki’s REGISTERED CHARITY TAX-EXEMPT STATUS !
David Suzuki must also STEP DOWN as host of television programs by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, including The Nature Of Things.
STOP Suzuki !
