Preventing poverty? Noble goal. And seeing as charity begins at home most charities start by paying their executives extremely well. Anybody think the president of the Susan G Komen foundation needs half a million a year plus perks? All charities should be regularly audited and the results available for public inspection. This particular issue should strike a chord should it not seeing as many of these charities are clearly moving into political territory and you might just remember that is what the IRS was attempting to prevent with those phoney PAC s. Same thing. Now how did that get to be a bad thing in the US but a desirable thing in Canada?
