CRA Freezing and Seizing Tax Cheat Assets

The CRA is now using ‘proceeds of crime’ provisions to freeze assets and seize property of tax cheats.

Tassé said the proceeds-of-crime provisions can also be used to seize property outside of Canada. For example, if the CRA believes that someone has engaged in offshore tax evasion and used the proceeds to buy a vacation home or a yacht, the CRA could freeze or seize those assets.

Using the proceeds-of-crime provisions also can block tactics used by some tax evaders, such as declaring corporate bankruptcy to avoid paying the taxes, said Tassé.

They just took it down… basically an suv hits a pedestrian at low speed and drags him under the car before deciding to stop

article describes incident incorrectly….is this intentional? seriously WTF?

“A video of the incident has surfaced on social media this week. In it, a woman driving an SUV approaches a man standing on the pavement of the parking lot. She knocks him over while making a right turn, and comes to a stop with him underneath.”

>>> first, the woman did NOT stop. she kept driving and basically dragged the other person 15-20 ft before stopping. second, the driver turned LEFT not right as described in the article. get your f’in facts straight. surely someone will now assume the pedestrian was at fault by not looking while crossing or somehow visibility was compromised or some other bs. anyone that watched or happened to have their flash downloader on (other copies of video will surely surface) knows the what really happened…

and after watching again it looked as though she would have kept going too if it wasn’t for the other person who run out and stopped her.

House Prices Fall In Most Major Canadian Cities Amid ‘Cooling Demand’

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/topstories/house-prices-fall-in-most-major-canadian-cities-amid-%E2%80%98cooling-demand%E2%80%99/ar-BBQQY3e?ocid=se

“….Many in the real estate industry have declared that Canada’s housing markets have achieved the much-desired “soft landing,” and the country is not in for a severe housing correction.

But the latest data from the Teranet/National Bank house price index shows house prices in Canada’s largest cities have largely turned negative in the past few months.”

Let’s hope so. I’m going to pull the trigger on buying this summer.

Will know if PR passes.

Will know if rates peak.

Will know if Trudeau likely to win again.

Will know if BC Liberals back in.

Or, you could just look at extremely high MOI and decide that buying at this time would be retarded.

Just so we’re sure. Its icbc allowing foreign drivers licence holders to drive and insure here.

Car dealers sell lots of white SUVs. So the kickbacks.

But 2 problems.

Many licences just bought overseas.

And they have to drive on the opposite side of the road and the steering is on the opposite side.

But you have to pay for these rising costs.

Spring election if PR vote fails. They won’t try to bring in Uber again. They will run on the Greens and NDP opposing it.

“What is the future of Australia’s housing market?”, ABC News Australia

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usfe9Ue6H90

“For years now the real estate discussion has been all about rising house prices in Sydney and Melbourne and how hard it is to buy a house or find an affordable rental. But not any more. Some are predicting that we’re at the start of what could be the deepest and longest property downturn in Australia’s history.”

Worth the watch. Obviously, this program is not brought to you by Remax.

Fucking locust who ate the community.

“The median annual household income for the Dunbar-Southlands neighbourhood was $104,450 in 2016, according to Statistics Canada — well above the citywide average of $72,585. But residents who talked to StarMetro said they purchased their homes decades ago, when a working professional could find an affordable home in the city.”

“Does it change anything (about Dunbar)?” one of the women, who declined to give their names, asked rhetorically. “I don’t think so.”

“But Meng’s house has long been regarded by locals as a stereotypical Vancouver “empty home,” the women said. They are a common sight these days in Dunbar and are a sore point for longtime residents. Many people raised their children in the neighbourhood and find it hard to accept that those kids would never be able to afford to live in the place where they grew up.”

“During the bail hearing, Meng’s lawyer said her in-laws lived in the Dunbar home four to six months out of the year, while she herself spends several weeks there every summer.”

So it’s not empty. There’s really no story here, you’re simply trying to manufacture one.

Except the neighbors that were interviewed on TV said the house was occupied a few weeks a year…. Im sure they were lying tho. No way Meng or her lawyer were lying

It’s more likely that the person who wasn’t under oath was mistaken, wouldn’t you agree?

There’s also flexibility in what “a few weeks of the year” means or how somebody might be able to accurately gauge occupancy from random casual observations.

It reminds me of the idiots who think condo towers are unoccupied because many of the lights are off. It’s just dumb to not consider that people might be out that evening or perhaps have the lights on in only one of their rooms.

So basically he was twiddling his thumbs for over a year in office and making up phrases like ‘icbc dumpster fire’ and then raising rates.

The AG’s assertion that he and Peter German, the former deputy commissioner of the RCMP, were unaware of the RCMP’s report bespeaks extreme disorganization & miscommunication within the justice system which has rendered it incompetent to discharge its responsibilities – which the AG also acknowledges…”I still remain concerned that British Columbia and Canada simply do not have the resources or capacity to investigate and convict—prosecute and convict—those involved in transnational organized crime and money laundering,” A casual inspection of Vancouver suggests how right he is.

Interesting:
“Yet with Ms. Meng free on bail, she may well skip the country. The idea that some security guards and a GPS anklet could prevent this from happening is naive at worst and hopeful at best. The Chinese government has hundreds of officials and agents in Vancouver, and dozens of airplanes and cargo ships depart for China each day.”

The government lawyers missed the chance to keep Ms. Meng in detention.

In 7 days, we will know of the GreeNDP fails or gains power indefinitely.

Countdown is on…

If it fails, I can see the leader of the Green Party resigning. That party will be done for.

The Liberals will start to ratchet up the election machinery.

NDP will probably be laughing at the Greens.

fast forward a bit…

prov Libs back in power and bending over backwards to appease chinese buyers, businesses, tourists with the help of the feds. although i didnt necessarily see things playing out this way, i have said for a while that the FBT would be rolled back due to one reason or another. with all the backlash that is currently materializing (and being amped up further) a move like this is a pretty much a slam dunk now. so at end of day, meng will walk away from this being a few million richer (and cured of her cancer)

Helping Vietnamese Sex Slaves Escape from China

They are among tens of thousands trafficked into China from impoverished pockets of Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos.

They are tricked, lured or kidnapped and sold as wives and prostitutes across the border, some ending up deep inside the tightly-controlled Communist country.
