STOP COMPLICITY IN GENOCIDE
To: Government of Canada, Revenue Canada
STOP SUBSIDIZING CRIMES AGAINST INDIGENOUS PEOPLE IN CANADA!
CANCEL THE CHARITABLE, TAX-FREE STATUS OF THE MAINLINE CANADIAN CHURCHES WHICH ARE GUILTY OF THE GENOCIDE OF NATIVE PEOPLES.
Since 1890, the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian and United Church of Canada have perpetrated murder, land theft, mass sterilizations, medical experiments, and sexual terrorism on native people across Canada. Government documents and eyewitnesses confirm that over 50,000 children died in the "residential schools" run by these churches until 1984, or more than 50% of the inmates of these facilities.
And yet not a single church official has been tried for these crimes. On the contrary, Canadian taxpayers continue to subsidize these very churches which committed all five of the definitions of Genocide established by the United Nations' 1948 Convention on Genocide, which Canada ratified in 1952.
These same churches are also in violation of the domestic Canadian laws governing charitable bodies, which state that any charity (like a church) must spend ALL of its revenue on charitable activities; not on lawyers, public relations experts and corporate investments, as these churches have done.
Churches are not above the law; and neither should we be paying their bills to help them avoid the consequences of their criminal actions.
We, the Undersigned, therefore demand:
1. That Revenue Canada immediately and unconditionally revoke the charitable tax-free status of the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian and United Church of Canada because of their continual violation of the terms of the Income Tax Act, and their role in planning and executing deliberate crimes of Genocide against aboriginal people in Canada;
2. That Revenue Canada conduct an audit of these same churches and collect all back taxes owed by them to the people of Canada;
3. That any refusal or failure of Revenue Canada to obey its own charter by not revoking such status of these churches be considered an act of direct complicity with these churches in concealing Genocide; and
4. That, consequently, an International War Crimes Tribunal be established by the United Nations and other bodies to investigate such complicity by Canadian church and state in Crimes Against Humanity.
