Tom's Speech on Motion 43

Earlier this week I was proud to rise in the House to speak in support of Motion 43, which calls for better protection of taxpayers.

M-43 would require the CRA to take responsibility for any errors which occur from malicious intent or gross negligence on its part, thus making the CRA more accountable to all Canadian taxpayers.

I have received a great number of requests from constituents seeking help in dealing with the CRA. In many of these cases the CRA has been at fault, which has caused my constituents unnecessary work, grief, and financial hardship.
