Please give me your thoughts on this, but when I hear this I think it is absurd. Murderers and rapists have been known to spend less time in jail and he is being sentenced for THREE YEARS for not paying his taxes. I know that some people call this stealing and I don't disagree, but at the same time the government always knows how to get their money and can keep track of how much he owes, it isn't like he ran off with it, so I don't agree with the sentence handed out to him. I think the jails need to be reserved for the real criminals out there, or at least the ones that endanger the rest of us. Give him a fine, make him pay double to set a precedent. I think that would serve him and the public much better than by using the taxes he failed to pay to feed and put a roof over his head! I am interested to hear anyone else's thoughts on that as maybe it is my Canadian ignorance, but I just don't see the point when there are far worse criminals out there who are running free.
