The Great Canadian Tax Dodge (https://www.tvo.org/video/documentaries/the-great-canadian-tax-dodge ) is a Harper-era documentary on how tax injustice was perpetuated against civil society, despite efforts by some who wanted to defend against the corruption of the rule of law.
The documentary is far from radical, it is informative, and it makes valid public policy observations, but perhaps due to its way of presentation not as many people as the subject should have warranted have paid attention to the corrosion of taxation as a pillar in civil society and more importantly the enablers of the use of tax havens in aggressive tax planning.
Since the original airing of the documentary a few years ago some things have changed. For example, attempts to determine the tax gap were made under Trudeau. But the big business of tax avoidance continues to thrive. The enablers such as tax accountants and tax lawyers continue to insist that if anyone who don’t like tax avoidance, go change the laws, while at the same time their clients make sure that the laws won’t be changed.
