If you were given a dollar every second that goes by, it would take 32 years to become a billionaire. As Linda McQuaig wrote, being a billionaire isn't just beyond the wildest dreams of most people on Earth, it's likely beyond their comprehension.

There is a grass-roots movement in  England that is presently 'shaming' the rich and corporations into paying up. Its called Uk Uncut. Check out their site here - http://www.ukuncut.org.uk/

 

There is also a version now in the USA

 

We should definitely get something like this started in Canada

81% of people convicted of tax fraud in the US go to prison. Only 16% do in Canada.

 

So we're pushing for mandatory minimums?

 

Or otherwise, what's the Legislative arm supposed to do about a failure in the Judiciary? Evidently they're getting caught, they're getting tried and they're getting convicted, but then a judge says "I sentence you to watch television, get drunk, hang out with your buddies and otherwise lead a happy normal life with a bracelet on your ankle!"
