One wit­ness could win case

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

rate with the IRS, “vi­o­lates Canada’s sovereignty as a na­tion and the rights guar­an­teed all Cana­di­ans un­der the Char­ter of Rights and Free­doms,” the Al­liance for the De­fence of Cana­dian Sovereignty has filed a law­suit in Canada Fed­eral Court to, as chair of the Al­liance Stephen Kish puts it: “to kill that law.” The Al­liance for the De­fence of Cana­dian Sovereignty is now look­ing for Cana­dian cit­i­zens who were born in an Amer­i­can hospi­tal out of ne­ces­sity, spend­ing just a few days to a week there be­fore re­turn­ing to Canada and oth­er­wise liv­ing the rest of their lives as Cana­di­ans, to act as wit­nesses in the up­com­ing court case. “The sit­u­a­tion of peo­ple like this is very un­for­tu­nate. They are con­sid­ered as crim­i­nals in the United States just be­cause they haven’t filled out United States tax forms. We un­der­stand why the United States has be­gun en­forc­ing this law, they need the money, but Canada turned over the rights of its cit­i­zens so we’re su­ing to pre­vent that from hap­pen­ing,” ex­plained Mr. Kish in an in­ter­view with the Stanstead Jour­nal. The Al­liance for the De­fence of Cana­dian Sovereignty is in need of peo­ple will­ing to be wit­nesses in the up­com­ing court case. The wit­nesses would be re­quired to sup­ply a short, no­ta­rized af­fi­davit ex­plain­ing their sit­u­a­tion as it re­lates to the case. It is highly un­likely that they would need to ap­pear in court. The type of wit­nesses that are needed for the law suit, be­sides hav­ing been born in the United States, should also have lived in Canada all their life and never filed U.S. tax forms. It’s all right if they have vis­ited the United States. The Al­liance is not look­ing for wit­nesses who hold a United States pass­port, who have voted in an Amer­i­can elec­tion, or who have re­lin­quished their Amer­i­can cit­i­zen­ship. “The court needs to hear from real peo­ple. This leg­is­la­tion is af­fect­ing in­no­cent Cana­di­ans,” con­cluded Mr. Kish. If you’d like more in­for­ma­tion about the process or you would like to be a wit­ness in this case, con­tact Stephen Kish at stephen.kish.chair@adcs-adsc.ca.
