Oh we already have ours thanks.

In fact I have a vague memory of when Ontario first implemented a provincial sales tax at 3% over 50 years ago (I was 14).

The Federal version was brought in by our Conservative party under Mulroney. He did reduce the income tax at the same time but still got slaughtered in the following election... however the replacement government didn't keep their election promise to cancel it. "Things are worse than we thought".

Y'all are a bunch of whiners anyway.
