Ex-lawyer no believer in taxman

Come each April 1, John Gorman shakes his head and throws away the brown envelope marked Revenue Canada. He has only filed his federal taxes twice since 1980.

“I’m anything but part of the system,” he said. “We were trained to pay taxes. The taxman is illegal.”

The former Newmarket lawyer broke away from the conventional tax sentiment. He put his dislike of the government taking from his pocket and posted them for all Canadians to read.

“Everyone is sucked in,” he said. “About 99 per cent have no idea about what’s going on.”

Mr. Gorman created the Marvel-like CAPtain Canada, decorated in red and white superhero getup and cape.

He uses historical data and legal logic to fight the evil powers of the taxman. After the First World War, the federal government asked to use the provincial right to impose a direct tax on citizens because the war debt was so huge. The government promised to stop income taxes after the debt was paid, Mr. Gorman said.

“Collecting income tax by the federal government is not legislated,” he said. “Everyone’s paying a voluntary tax.”

His website is a collection of anti-tax articles and financial predictions, some of which have already taken place.

In 1983, when he was canvassing on behalf of farmers, he wrote his future predictions for the world market. He said there would be a war with many parties in the Middle East.

After a few years, a depression would hit North America that would be worse than the Great Depression of the 1930s. But his prediction was off by two years.

The war in the Middle East would start in 2000, he said.

“But it’s happening. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq,” he said.

“And just look at the housing market in the States. They’re walking us into a depression.”

By “they” he means the government and the banks through the collection of taxes and interest rates.

Mr. Gorman suggests selling your home, if you owe more than 75 per cent in mortgage, stock up on food and water and start to buy small denominations of gold and silver.

The deepest part of the depression, he predicts, will hit before 2010. But, more importantly, stay close to friends and family.

“I want to be here to help my kids and grandkids through the Depression,” he said.
