Canada's Climate Scientists Can't Do Their Jobs Because Of Corporate Tax Loopholes - 2019-09-26
The results are in from a survey taken by federal scientists in Canada. More than 95 percent say that climate change is a crisis in need of immediate action, while only 20 percent of them think Canada is doing enough to fight and mitigate the crisis. This is largely due to corporate tax loopholes in Canada which are taking billions of dollars away from science, the research says.
The survey was conducted by the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC), a union representing 60,000 public service professionals including Canada's scientists.
"Nine out of 10 Canada Revenue Agency tax professionals say it is easier for corporations and wealthy individuals to evade or avoid tax responsibilities than it is for average Canadians," said PIPSC President Debi Daviau.
