Tax havens and tax evasion costs governments, including Canada, the US and those in the developing world a substantial amount of revenue.

At the upcoming G20 meeting financial regulation and stopping tax haven secrecy will be at the top of the agenda. If the US loses $100 billion in tax revenue every year from tax havens, then how much does Canada lose every year? Why not take the money currently lost and use it to increase grants and contributions to the Canadian charitable sector?
