Welcome to the Irvin Leroux Duty of Care website! We hope you find a lot of useful information about Irvin's long road to justice and accountability battling the Canada Revenue Agency for 20 years. We hope you share your story so that Irvin can continue to stand up for Canadian taxpayers and take our stories to the new Liberal government.
Irvin's story is about holding government accountable to it's citizens and standing up to the taxman, the bullying and corruption that has gone on and continues today against ordinary hardworking taxpayers in this supposedly FREE and DEMOCRATIC country.
Irvin's David v Goliath story is one of thousands - 10s of thousands in fact - where individuals, families, businesses have been destroyed by negligent, malicious officials at Canada Revenue Agency. Employees and officials are knowingly protected by the Agency and its bureaucrats, elected politicians and legislation. This Agency wields absolute power over all of us because it operates with unlimited resources to target, assess, collect, threaten, control and destroy us and is not held accountable.
This is why Irvin's story is so compelling. It is the first time a citizen has held the taxman to a legal Duty of Care. After a 20 year battle standing up to rude, corrupt, negligent CRA auditors, appeals officers and collectors, through the Tax Court of Canada, and after 10 years in BC Supreme Court and two appearances at the BC Court of Appeal, Irvin's case set a precedent for all taxpayers in Canada. The past 10 years were spent in the civil courts battling not only CRA but also the Department of Justice that fights on behalf of the taxman, also fighting with the unlimited resources of the government. FIGHTING US WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS. Absolutely unlimited resources; it is sickening. But Irvin didn't fight the battle alone and he shares the Duty of Care victory with hundreds of fellow ordinary Canadians, friends, family, supporters, media and two key citizens groups.
FINALLY some action from an elected MP!
CONTACT PAT KELLY, MP FOR CALGARY ROCKY RIDGE Let's inform him gross negligence cases are not "somewhat rare" when it comes to CRA. CRA is destroying people's lives with negligence and corruption on an ongoing and regular basis!!!
