July 29, 2021 – Crown prosecutors say four women charged in a multimillion-dollar tax fraud scheme made repeated attempts to fool the Canada Revenue Agency.

The Cape Breton women — Georgette Young, Angela MacDonald, Nadia Saker, and their mother, Lydia Saker — are facing 30 charges, including fraud.

They all have pleaded not guilty and are representing themselves at the judge-alone trial taking place in Sydney, N.S.

“This is how money was made over a certain [period] of time.” CBC News reports. | READ MORE
