Critical Government Functions Outsourced

I've watched as the Harper government dismantles our environmental monitoring and management programs, abandons the concepts of food and water security, quietly dismantles Health Canada's capacity to protect health standards, undoes the Parks Act, cripples its own data collection and analysis, deregulates transportation safety, and generally abandons any notion of regulatory limitation on revenue generation.

But this is going too far. Received last week:

From: Tax refund Canada Revenue Agency
To: (my name)
Re: Tax refund request submitted.

You will receive a confirmation to your email once your request was process.
This automatic e-mail is to inform you that the following transaction made on Refund Amount: $386.00

The refunding procedure usually takes 5-15 business days, depending on the processing banks as well.

Yours truly,

Edificio Oudinot, 3rd Floor - Room 317
P-9060-209 Funchal
Madeira, Portugal

Now the bastards have outsourced tax refunds! AND to some firm in Portugal!! Who can barely speak English!!! I have nothing against the Portuguese, but is this not something a Canadian firm could have taken over? Or at least a British one?

It's a national disgrace. I tell you, if this isn't enough to topple the Harperites, I just don't know what will.
