Birkenfeld believes there’s at least $1-billion in federal unpaid taxes in Canada

Since the Liberals came to power, nothing has changed. In spite of continued attempts, no politician is willing to assist in getting Bradley Birkenfeld into Canada. No one wants to have Birkenfeld testify before a parliamentary committee and expose those who committed fraud.

Bradley Birkenfeld was an American banker working in Switzerland. As a whistleblower, he exposed the largest and longest running tax fraud by Americans using off-shore accounts. The unprecedented results were shocking and ultimately he received an award of $104-million from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) since more than $5-billion of unpaid taxes were recovered.
