Contacting Revenue Canada?

Anyone in the know about this? I received an e-mail message, supposedly from Revenue Canada, that they have to send me a (private) message about something and that I have to open an on-line dossier. I've done my income tax return and don't owe anything. A friend thinks it could be spam, but there is no way of knowing as there doesn't seem to be any phone number where I can call them (here in Montréal or anywhere else). Any way of cutting through this kind of red tape?

My accountant did send my returns online, so Revenue Canada and Revenue Québec actually do have one of my e-mails, but I've never been contacted in such a way before, with no idea of what they want to know.

C-51 about to be passed: 'See you in the slammer kids'

"There are no internal constraints left to halt totalitarian capitalism. Electoral politics is a sham. The media is subservient to corporate power. The working class is being disempowered and impoverished.

The legal system is a subsidiary of the corporate state. Any form of dissent, no matter how tepid, will soon be blocked by an internal security apparatus empowered by anti-terrorist laws that will outstrip anythign dreamed of by the East German Stasi state.

And no one in Ottawa or Washington intends to help us..."

Lawyer gets smeared as 'terrorist' by insane paranoiac testifying to Senate committee

It appears their goal is to sow fear and promote the existence of a conspiracy to Islamize Canada and destroy "Canadian values," which of course means their own ideals. The session on February 23 witnessed baseless attacks (all under the protection of Parliamentary Privilege) on respected national Muslim organizations and individuals that have tirelessly worked to integrate Muslims into becoming proud citizens of our great country.
