Call your MP demanding an end to tax havens in #Budget2018
Budget 2018: Will the Liberal government prioritize everyday Canadians by cracking down on ruthless corporate tax dodging — or keep letting billionaires rob our schools and hospitals of the funding they need?
If we’re going to drown out the chorus of corporate lobbyists pushing to keep their destructive tax dodging schemes intact, we need to contact decision-makers in as many ways as possible to get our message across — and MPs hearing from a flood of local constituents sends a powerful message they cannot ignore.

I'm a constituent of [MP’s name] riding, and I’m calling to make sure the Liberal government announces plans to make tax havens illegal in the upcoming budget
Corporations use tax havens to dodge $15 billion in taxes every year, and when they pay less, everyday Canadians like me pay more. It’s unfair.
This revenue is sorely needed for healthcare, childcare, and pensions.
A recent poll shows that 87% of Canadians want to make tax havens illegal. I’m calling on my MP to bring my message - and that of 87% of the population - to Ottawa before the budget announcement on Tuesday.
The Liberals ran on a campaign of tax fairness. While they’ve taken some action, I want them to start cracking down on the worst offenders of tax dodging: corporations.
