Re: Tax Fraud

Well, a thing that politicians from all over the world do. The difference is that in Canada it is less common than in other countries, and usually those that are commiting tax frauds are easily caught. Also, Canada is a pretty developed country with a higher standart of living than in most countries. I've heard that in Canada there are a lot of good AML (anti-money-laundering) services that identifies tax frauds easily.
