Karen Cilevitz insulting ward 5 and Richmond Hill by hiring a criminal convicted as her campaign manager
The character of a politician who has been hiring someone who is running monkey business and been convicted for tax fraud is under question.
Karen Cilevitz hired , Richard Rupp , as her campaign Manager while Mr. Rupp is convicted for Tax , HST fraud on Feb 4 2008 in New Market court for two years less one day . Richard Rupp cheated Canadians by wrongfully making 70 fake accounts to collect HST for his personal benefit.
If Karen Cilezitz knew the dark back ground of Mr. RIchard Rupp when hiring him to run her 2018 Richmond hill election campaign office then She is ethically unqualified to run as a councilor while making decision on hundred million $ of tax payers money .
The influence and access of a con artist at Richmond Hill council could lead to bad reputation and public mistrust in the Council while making decision on hundred million $ of tax payers money .
People of RIchmond Hill deserve honest politician who are transparent and willing to serve people for a brighter and better future , wrong people in the council or council office or staff will hurt Image and transparency of the council and Town of Richmond Hill.

Canada Revenue Agency: Richmond Hill Businessman Pleads Guilty to GST Fraud and Personating Other Individuals
NEWMARKET, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Feb. 4, 2008) – Richard Rupp of Richmond Hill was sentenced on February 1, 2008 in the Ontario Court of Justice to a conditional sentence of two years less a day after pleading guilty to goods and services tax (GST) fraud and personating other individuals. He was also fined a total of $217,557, which represents 100% of the fraudulent GST refunds he received.
Mr. Rupp, a former real estate agent and the president of Dynasty Homes Ltd., was sentenced to a conditional sentence of two years less a day for unlawfully making false or deceptive statements, and willfully obtaining GST funds to which he was not entitled. He was charged under the Criminal Code of Canada for fraudulently personating living persons with intent to gain advantage for himself. Under the conditional sentence, Mr. Rupp must remain at home during certain hours for one year, and must maintain good behaviour and must repay the amount fraudulently obtained by August 31, 2008. He must request from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) permission to register new GST accounts, and he must inform the CRA of any new companies that he acquires.
A CRA investigation revealed that Mr. Rupp registered 70 GST accounts from 1991 to 2001. During the period from 1996 to 2001, he used some of these accounts to file 652 false GST returns and receive fraudulent GST refunds totaling $217,557. Mr. Rupp used names and social insurance numbers of other individuals to register some of these accounts.
“Canadians have to be confident that the tax system is fair,” said William V. Baker, Commissioner of the CRA. “That’s why the Agency works to ensure that the vast majority of Canadians who pay their taxes are not penalized by the few who don’t.”
Taxpayers who claim false expenses, credits or rebates from the government are subject to serious consequences. They are liable not only for corrections to their tax returns and payment of the full amount of tax owing, but also to penalties and interest. In addition, if convicted of tax evasion, the court may fine them up to 200% of the tax evaded and sentence them for up to a five-year jail term.
The CRA is committed to ensuring public confidence in the integrity and fairness of the tax system through education and responsible enforcement. People who commit tax fraud are cheating the vast majority who obey tax laws.
