Description: A new film, The Price We Pay, is bringing to us the European debate about how to handle huge companies that use tax havens to shift billions in profits offshore. Companies like Starbucks and Amazon have already seen pressure on this issue. The  film questions whether some of the tax havens may have received a big boost from Canadian banks in the 1960s.
