Last week, David Suzuki had to resign from the Board of the foundation that bears his name.

This week, a complaint has been lodged with the Canada Revenue Agency for his foundation to be investigated for violating rules about political involvement by charities:

“With 12 registered lobbyists, the David Suzuki Foundation has more lobbyists on staff than most government relations firms,” the release from said.

No kidding. It’s the beginning of the end for their charitable status. But give him credit for sticking to his guns, despite the threats:

“I am not going to shut up just because of the rules about charities.”

I wish our bishops would do the same.
