- For those who follow my news bulletin, last week we talked about how CRA usually starts their Christmas cheer by sending their fellow Canadians letters denying deductions, letting them know how much they have to pay back and putting bookkeepers and tax consultants out of business.
Well that process has began....!
We will not mention names of clients or give any hints of who they might be, in order to protect their identity and confidentiality of information. This week alone 6 of our clients have gotten such letters telling them that their business expenses were denied because they say that their part-time income does not constitute a real business.
What is worse is that many of these people assessing the financial lives of our clients, are kids 3 months out of school with no real life experience what-so-ever.
First of all, if these people had lived life a little, they would know that most business ventures of any kind, do not turn a profit in their first 3 years of business. Most side businesses and even full time businesses are fortunate if they even break even during that time.
Most of these people were not even born in Canada or at least have received proper schooling from a young age here.
Most take a two year course in a community college and get hired soon there after. If you ask most of them, who Sir John A McDonald was or where is he buried, they would not have a clue). (for our friends who are not Canadian he was the first Prime Minister of Canada)
Secondly who are these snotty nosed kids, to say what constitutes "a real business and what doesn't?
On a serious note, these children can cause some major irreversible damage to Canadians because, CRA will consider what they have typed in their computer system as gospel written by the finger of God himself.
Here are some examples of what I am talking about. Let me start with some of the more ridiculous ones.
- They are denying a client $10,000 in child benefits, unless she can prove that she lived common-law with her boyfriend for the last 3 years. The thing is that her boyfriend never earned a dime in income since they have been together.
So weather he lived with her or not, makes no difference. As a matter of fact, she is owed even more money, because she did not claim the equivalent-to-spouse deduction for that duration.
- They are denying a struggling senior couple Guarantied Income Supplement because of their loss in their part-time cleaning business. Which brought their income $100 within their eligibility for that income.
Because of their disbelief, thinking that they did that on purpose, they are therefore wanting proof of their loss. If CRA decides to deny their business loss, the couple will lose approximately $6000 a year in government assistance and will be forced to live on less than $16,000 a year.
- another couple whom I have personally known for many years, run a cleaning business as well, and are under contract by one firm to clean their office once a week. They are being forced to pay back a little over $10,000 because CRA denied their deductions for the last 3 years. Proclaiming that, "a contract with one company does not constitute a business".
- Another 2 clients are being denied all their rental income expenses, because they consider the property to have been rented only for the purpose to alleviate their own personal welfare. Duh....! What other reason do people usually rent part of their house for? How stupid is that?
- Yet another whose business deductions were also denied for the last 3 years, but has letters from CRA approving those same deductions for 2 of those 3 years.
The list goes on and on. I can list even more ridiculous stories, but I would need to write a book about it.
How long are Canadians going to put up with these petty excuses for CRA to deny what is rightfully theirs?
When is the government going to insist on hiring competent mature experienced people to govern their citizens affairs and do the job right the first time? Thereby saving money in the process. (the reason is that they would only be employed for 2 or 3 months, during tax season)
When are they going to look after their own people first, before giving assistance to foreigners coming into this country under false pretenses and many with money and property back in their own country.
When is CRA going to get off their fat lazy asses and actually go to peoples homes and businesses to verify if peoples claims are true or not. Like they did in the old days. If they want to create employment, there's a way, all the while being fair to Canadians.
If someone claims they have a home office. There is no way to know for sure but to send an auditor to see for himself.
If someone claims to have a cleaning business, they would have professional cleaning equipment and cleaners in their garage. Whether they make money at their craft or not.
If someone claims to be renting their basement, there will be evidence of a second dwelling in the same house.
CRA's demands and excuses, to deny people their efforts at business ownership are becoming more ridiculous by the day. They are in fact creating a much bigger underground economy in Canada than there already is, and so I do not blame Canadians for the yearly harassment they have to endure for telling the truth.
Please don't say, " check the Income Tax Act, " because a few years ago, I read all 1500 plus pages of the most boring piece of literature on the planet. But every year it gets amended and revised with every election. The laws keep changing to suit their own agenda.
Wake up Canada, before its too late and you are being controlled in every aspect of your life.

CHP Communiqué Vol 22, Issue 50, Dec 15, 2015
The landslide Liberal victory leading to majority control of Canada’s federal government has led to jubilant celebration by many Canadians but not all Canadians. For those with a Christian world view it has served as a wake-up call; whether we like it or not, the election results reflect the current culture of mainstream society. There is no moral majority. There will be varied reactions from Christian world view people ranging from ‘c’est la vie’ acceptance to mild disappointment to rage. What should our response be?
Every person is to be in subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Romans 13:1
It is easy to have ill feelings toward our newly-elected government and to engage in disrespectful dialogue and name-calling, similar to how Liberals reacted when the Conservatives won their majority. We are not, however, Liberals; their ways are not our ways. We are Christians, followers of Christ, and servants of God. Thus our response and attitude must be scripture-inspired.
Despite our efforts and prayers in this election God has established the Liberal government for this season and we are to be subject to them. Does this mean we have to abandon our God-given moral convictions and cast off God’s authority? For sure not.
Remember this: Daniel was a very high ranking official of King Darius so we must believe that he treated the King with honour. However, when faced with the choice of praying to the King of Babylon or the God of Israel, he disobeyed the King and continued to kneel before God three times daily by an open window as he always had. Without shame or fear he honoured God above the King. With sadness King Darius had Daniel tossed into the den of starving lions. When King Darius returned in the morning to see if Daniel had survived, Daniel called out to him, “O King live forever,” a respectful reply, honouring the king.
Then the even more amazing event is found In Daniel 6:25-26:
Then Darius the king wrote to all the peoples, nations and men of every language who were living in all the land: “May your peace abound! I make a decree that in all of the dominion of my kingdom men are to fear and tremble before the God of Daniel; for He is the living God and enduring forever, and His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed, and His dominion will be forever.
God used the ungodly to bring glory to Himself. What if Daniel had been badmouthing the King or had compromised his Godly convictions to save his own skin? Would the results have been the same?
At the November National Board Meeting we affirmed Article A3 of the CHP Canada Constitution as being the objectives of CHP and in the priority as listed:
(a) To provide true Christian leadership and to defend, promote and uphold Biblical principles in federal legislation.
(b) To gain seats in Parliament so that we can have a direct influence on policy and policy changes.
(c) To contend for, and attain the leadership of the federal government of Canada through the existing democratic process
Daniel’s goal was to honour God in everything he did which included honouring those in authority; his goal was not to hold a high political position. However, because of his godly attitude and obedience, from his lowly position as a prisoner of war, God caused the godless to bestow great honour on Daniel.
Perhaps the most effective path to seeing Canada return to her Christian heritage is to obey God in every way including honouring those whom God has placed over us while never compromising God’s ways. Speak and write respectfully about those over us even when we are disagreeing and above all, pray that God will change their hearts and minds to see things His way.
Let us all work to provide true Christian leadership by first of all being unashamedly Christian and acting in a manner that brings glory to God. Is there a better way? Is there a better political party for Christians to support?

Book of the Week
"CHRIST IN US; CHRIST AS US; CHRIST THROUGH US"
The history of Christian theology reveals that there has been far more written about the believer’s being “in Christ” than has been written about Christ being present and active in, as, and through the Christian. This is to be expected, in part, because there are far more references in the New Testament to our being “in Christ” than there are to Christ being “in us.”

This week on Idiocracy - I don't know if you have noticed, but if you have a look around you, the world seems to be getting dumber by the day. Peoples IQ has dropped dramatically in the past 10 years (look it up). I don't know if it is due to chemtrails, the water, the GMO's and chemicals in our food, the education system or all the above. But something is definitely happening to people around the globe. So we have decided to ad this little fun piece, named after the movie Idiocracy, entitled "This week in idiocracy".
If you have any idiocratic stories you want to share with us, e-mail them to us and we will post it in the following week's newsletter.
This week on idiocracy
- Normally I don't get preachy or talk about religion much, or mix religion with politics which blends just about as well as oil and water, but sometimes there is no way around it.
We can choose to live in a world with rosy colored glasses and pretend everything is OK, or we can wake up and look at the reality that surrounds us and try to change things for the better.
It has always been the goal of this short newsletter to bring to light the injuries and injustices that go un-noticed behind closed doors; so that you, the public, know whats going on and when these problems come to your door, you will see it coming with both eyes open. Hopeful before they arrive at your doorstep.
In our past election, Canadians elected a man that when I was born, he was still his fathers dream by almost a decade in a half. Hardly an age of wisdom and worldly experience to be classified or even considered a world leader.
In the previous article our beloved brother and dear friend say's that "in this election God has established the Liberal government for this season and we are to be subject to them."
Please understand that just because I am commenting on the article in this section, it does not mean that I consider him an idiot. I comment on it with the most love and respect for my brother in Christ.
It is just that politicians and idealists don't always agree, but that's politics.
We were ALL created in the image of God, but not all in the same mind set of God or each other. If we were it would be the end of all troubles.
Romans 13:1 talks about Gods Ministers and goes on to list Gods law in 13:9 the Ten Commandments; and the authority of the time, the church.
It says "the powers that be are ordained of God". Which man have misinterpreted, twisted and applied it to all in authority.
If I am wrong then Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Mussolini just to name a few, must of also have been ordained of God? I think not.
Now I am not comparing the Liberal leadership with tyrants, I am just saying that not all authority is established by God.
So how do we know that it was God that has established this government for this season? We don't ...!
If one reads their Bible, we know who the prince of this world is.... So do we bough down and be also subject to them?
Pray for them.... yes!
Right or wrong, respect them....!
But bend to their will when policy goes against Gods law and will, like David opposed it, so should we until it becomes law. Then there is nothing you can do about it, except to appeal the decision or buck for another election. Like they did with Joe Clark.
In the words of Joshua.... "but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." Jos 24:15
Tell that we are to be subject to them, to the unborn Canadian who is scheduled to die today, the single mom who has to make a choice of letting herself and her family go hungry today or pay the rent, or the homeless man that has to make a choice between sleeping on a rock pile under a bridge or a shelter where he will be robbed and beaten for his winter jacket.
Tell that to the genuine disabled who are forced to live on $1200 a month and the charity of his or her family when a refugee comes to this country illegally and without proper screening, gets paid up to $2100 / month, free housing, free health care, transportation costs and a bonus for each child that comes with them.
A big mistake that is brewing for Canadians on the near horizon.
Or do we put on the Armour of God and fight these atrocities not just today, but tomorrow and next day, so that our children and their children don't have to feel the sting of this ungodly and unjust world we live in today.
We look to our politicians to stand up and fight for our God given rights and freedoms on a daily basis, not for leaders that govern their own interests and those pulling the strings or roll over and be defeated by a political tidal waves and say "it's Gods will".
The job does not begin or end on election day, but its an ongoing fight on this battlefield we call life.
If you have your own idiocracy story send it to us and we will publish it in the next bulletin.
Tell your friends about us.
Thank you my friends, for sharing this brief moment together and we look forward to our little time together next week.
