Here is a copy of a letter from the Charities Directorate to the Hindu Temple Society of Canada.  It is interesting for a number of reasons in that it discusses penalties for making gifts to non-qualified donees and the imposition of both a compliance agreement and a penalty.  Furthermore, the letters discuss funding by the Hindu Temple Society of Canada of the Tamils Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) and the issue of the involvement of Canadian charities in political activities such as Tamil independence in Sri Lanka.

Here is the CRA letter to the Hindu Temple Society of Canada.
