I wonder when intercst will realize that if folks make and spend $50K in Canada, everything they buy has a 15-19% tax.

Somehow, my math says that 19% tax on $50K income means you pay $9000 in VAT taxes a year.

And that is 'cheaper'? That is on top of income tax levels the same in both Canada and France.


My wife and I pay $25,000 per year for health insurance and deductibles. Tell me again how Canada is more expensive.

Maybe that is why EU unemployment usually runs double the USA?

Or maybe they count their unemployed differently? Have you looked at our U-6 numbers?
