Tax returns show government money for HALO

Re: “Terminal terminal no good for HALO,” March 10

The HALO spokesman makes the claim that HALO “operates entirely on donations from the community.”

Lest it be assumed that all donations are made by private citizens, HALO’s annual return for 2015, a requirement of the Canada Revenue Agency, shows that $172,025 was given to HALO by federal, municipal and regional governments. This represents 24 per cent of HALO’s total revenue.

In 2014 governments contributed 30 per cent and in 2013 38 per cent.
