British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Jacques v. HMTQ, 2000 BCSC 430 (CanLII):

Lastly, the appellant argues that Grimwood v. The Queen [1987] 2. S.C.R. 755, which provides that a fresh offence occurs each time a demand is made even within the same year, offers a remedy that ought to be sufficient for the purposes of the Income Tax Act, that is, repeated original charges under s. 238(1).
