An investigation by CCRA of the taxpayer was not transmuted into a criminal investigation until the auditor met with Special Investigations and referred the file to them for their consideration. Reilly J. noted (at p. 5219) that:
"The mere fact that the audit was provoked as a result of suspicion of non-compliance does not turn it into an investigation to determine penal liability."
He also noted (at p. 5220) that:
"Questions related to mens rea do not fall within the scope of s. 231.1(1)(d)."
