As noted on this blog in June of this year the Supreme Court of Canada denied leave to appeal in the case of F. Max E. Maréchaux v. Her Majesty the Queen

F. Max E. Maréchaux v. Her Majesty the Queen

Here are some of the court documents. They shed further light on this case which I think is the first major case dealing with what CRA terms “abusive charity gifting tax schemes” to make it to the Supreme Court for leave to appeal. These abusive charity gifting tax schemes involve the issuance of over $6 billion in innapropriate receipts over the last 8 or so years.
