Man says Revenue Canada pursued him for years for back taxes
A former foster parent from Victoria has launched a lawsuit against the province of B.C., CBC News has learned, claiming the province did nothing to help him fight Ottawa over a huge tax bill he didn't owe.
For two decades, Bud Webster took in extremely troubled teens who were difficult for other foster homes to handle. It was his full-time occupation.
"All of my kids were violent, without exception," Webster told CBC News.
