Mr. Flaherty does not have to go far to look for tax cheats. Try the Senate, Members of Parliament, Lobbyists and other politicians and high paid civil servants who owe hundreds of thousands. Have CRA spend their time 'where the money is' not on reassessing tax returns for tax payers who owe $4.67.

I remember back in 1991, the Bronfman family made a special request to Revenue Canada seeking permission to transfer $2.2 billion of their family's money out of Canada --permanently--- completely tax-free. RC refused the request, but the Dept. of Finance intervened and reversed the decision. Since that bit of larceny, I never ever forget that at least part of the reason we lowly, overtaxed Canadians always have to pony up for shortfalls is because the government will go out of its way to help its billionaire friends avoid paying their share. And it's all about public service, folks.....
