23rd Annual Conference Kick-Off Event: a film screening of The Price We Pay
Location: Arts Building Room W-215, 853 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC
To kick-off its 23rd annual conference, MISC is hosting a free screening of the critically acclaimed documentary, The Price We Pay.
"The Price We Pay is inspired by Brigitte Alepin’s book La Crise fiscale qui vient. Director Harold Crooks (who co-directed Surviving Progress with Mathieu Roy) blows the lid off the dirty world of corporate malfeasance with this incendiary documentary about the dark history and dire present-day reality of big-business tax avoidance, which has seen multinationals depriving governments of trillions of dollars in tax revenues by harboring profits in offshore havens. Tax havens, originally created by London bankers in the 50s, today put over half the world’s stock of money beyond reach of public treasuries."
A discussion will follow the screening with the film's Prix Gémeaux-winning co-writer and tax specialist, Brigitte Alepin.
This event is free and open to the public but RSVPs by misc.iecm [at] mcgill.ca (subject: RSVP%20Feb%2021%20-%20The%20Price%20We%20Pay%20with%20Brigitte%20Alepin) (e-mail) or via Eventbrite are encouraged.
