Write a letter to Canada Revenue Agency: No subsidies for war crime

Take a minute to support a formal complaint asking the Canada Revenue Agency to investigate whether the HESEG FOUNDATION and its main patron THE GERALD SCHWARTZ and HEATHER REISMAN FOUNDATION are violating rules for registered charities.

HESEG assists non-Israelis joining that country’s military even though CRA rules preclude assisting foreign militaries. As the genocide and destruction in Gaza caused by the Israeli military grows, it's imperative that Canadian taxpayers are not subsidizing that violence in violation of CRA laws.

The HESEG board has included a handful of top former Israeli military officials. This includes Chief Commander of the Israeli military in Gaza and the West Bank, Yitzhak Eitan, Head of Mossad, Shabtai Shavi, and Commander of the IDF's Southern Command, Doron Almog.

The Gerald Schwartz and Heather Reisman Foundation, a charitable foundation began by the founders of HESEG, has provided over $43 million to HESEG over the last five years, and according to a recent ATIP, the Schwartz and Reisman Foundation provided about $185 million to HESEG over the years.
