VANCOUVER — The Canada Revenue Agency says a West Vancouver man has been sentenced to 29 months in jail and handed a stiff fine for attempting to avoid a tax bill. Court records show Michael Sholz was sentenced Wednesday in provincial court in Vancouver. Sholz, who is in his late 60s, was convicted in June 2020 of three tax-related offences under the Excise Tax Act and two counts of uttering forged documents related to ownership and construction of a West Vancouver home. A statement from the agency says, in addition to the jail term, Sholz has been fined $644,975.71. The statement says an investigation showed Scholz forged documents to support ineligible tax credits linked to the home's ownership, construction and design and also forged a lease agreement that would have lowered the assessed value of the home, reducing taxes owed. The Canada Revenue Agency says there were 32 tax fraud convictions across the country between April 2019 and March 2020, with 13 taxpayers jailed for a total of 18.5 years for wilfully evading payment of $7.4 million in taxes.

OTTAWA — The fact Admiral Art McDonald stepped aside as Canada's defence chief while misconduct allegations are investigated demonstrates how seriously such cases are taken, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says. But Trudeau said Friday that more must be done to ensure workplaces are free of harassment and intimidation. "This is something that is extremely important. And it's something we've taken strides on, both in our government and in the military. But there's always more to do," Trudeau said during a news briefing. "Because there is an ongoing review into this situation, and we're ensuring that all the steps are properly taken, I won't be commenting specifically on this process at this time." Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said late Wednesday that McDonald had "voluntarily stepped aside'' as chief of the defence staff while military police investigate unspecified allegations. He is on paid leave. McDonald took over as chief last month from Gen. Jonathan Vance, who is being investigated over allegations of inappropriate behaviour that became public following his retirement. Vance has denied any wrongdoing and McDonald has not commented. Canadian Army commander Lt.-Gen. Wayne Eyre has been appointed acting chief of the defence staff. Trudeau said he wants anyone who has experienced sexual assault or other such abuse to know that "we will be there, to listen, to hear them, to work with them and to move forward through processes that will get to the right answers." Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole said Friday that a Tory government would launch a service-wide independent investigation of sexual misconduct in the military. General officer promotions would be suspended during the probe, along with salary increases, O'Toole said. He also pledged that future complaints would be made to an independent body outside of the chain of command. Sexual harassment in the Canadian Armed Forces is an "ongoing and serious problem that must be addressed," O'Toole added. “This unsafe culture must change."

The NDP says they will continue building the Site C mega dam in northeastern B.C., with an increased budget of $16 billion and a one year delay. Last August the government commissioned a special review and geotechnical safety review after BC Hydro acknowledged a serious concern about the dam’s foundational stability. Those reports have just now been made public, with all recommendations being accepted. The review from special advisor Peter Milburn recommended additional oversight, but did not find evidence of mismanagement. The engineers review recommended adjustments to strengthen the foundation, which have been accepted. The government calculated it would cost $10 billion to terminate the dam, and concluded it was preferable to complete Site C at the higher price point than to absorb the loss. It said cancelling the dam would have an immediate impact to ratepayers of an estimated 26 per cent rate increase over 10 years. About $6 billion has already been spent, and construction on the dam is over half complete, BC Hydro said. The Peace River has been diverted, the coffer dams are done, and two of the massive turbines have arrived from Brazil. The Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation also said most of the environmental impacts have already occurred. RELATED: Open letter urges B.C. to pause work at Site C dam to review costs, geotechnical issues As for geotechnical concerns, engineers John France and Dr. Kaare Hoeg evaluated the small movement shifts that had been observed, and recommended solutions to shore up the strength of the foundation. They met virtually, reviewing analysis from other engineers, but did not in fact visit the site itself. Making up the $5.3 billion cost increase — up to $16 billion from the previous budget of $10.7 billion — the Ministry said “about half” comes from the geotechnical changes and COVID-19 related adjustments. It would not provide more specific numbers. Approximately $2.6 billion of the pumped-up budget comes from other unrelated cost overruns. The actual rate increase from completing the project are unknown, as they will not take effect until the dam is complete, now estimated for 2025. BC Hydro has calculated an example, assuming the total costs were spread over 10 years: the new budget would result in 14.5 per cent increase, or $36 per year for the average rate payer. Previous increase for the $10.7 billion budget was estimated at 11.4 per cent. The cost of terminating would lead to a 26 per cent rate increase over 10 years. RELATED: First Nation calls for release of Site C report in open letter to premier The dam has been controversial since the 1980s when it was first proposed as a series of dams on the Peace River. Supporters say the mega dam will supply B.C. with stable energy to meet growing capacity needs. Those opposed group under a variety of reasons, a primary critique being the ballooning budget. Site C was originally approved with an $8.8 billion budget in 2014. It increased to $10.7 billion after the BC Utilities Commission reviewed the project in 2017 when the NDP took over government. Concerns around dam stability have been raised by the public for years. Other complaints are about the ecological impact, First Nations rights in the area, and whether B.C. really needs the power supply.
