Bradley Birkenfeld told The Hill Times that he'd be happy to provide valuable information with documents that could help Canadian authorities recover unpaid federal taxes in offshore accounts. It's estimated that Revenue Canada is losing about $8-billion in lost taxes from offshore bank accounts each year.
