Jenny Kwan In Question Period on Canada Revenue Agency

I asked a question on November 01, 2018, as to why the Canada Revenue Agency isn't making going after tax havens a priority: 
"Mr. Speaker, instead of going after fat cat CEOs and the tax havens wealthy corporations use to avoid paying their fair share, refugees are having their child benefits clawed back. The government failed to provide timely access for language training for many of the new arrivals, yet refugee families that do not respond quickly to the CRA are penalized immediately. Not only are those payments stopped, but, in two cases, refugee families were billed $27,000.
Is that why the government is giving the CRA $1 billion to crack down on the middle class and those who are working hard to join it?"
