Yes, and don't you just love it when we are told Health Care is free-sure it is-yep okay. Our governments keeps raising our taxes to cover their cost over-runs, their mis-spending and fraud. Makes me proud to be Canadian, cheat us, steal from us, de-fraud us and up our taxes and we take it.

it's the same in the UK, but personally I'd prefure to pay taxes and have many complex Neurological operations done on the National Health System, which my taxes pay for (although clearly not enough to cover such operations from my taxable income) and let the higher earners pay little more.

Much fairer than making someone who....say.....is on $14k a year pay many thousands...of which they dont ever have a hope in hell of raising for a life saving operation.


ok so the thing is full of buerachy and money is mismanaged....but I'd prefure that to the american health care alternative....I've seen ppl kicked out of hospital beds in the US for not having healthcare.....shame on them

No you haven't. Denying healthcare to uninsured is against the law. And if they were kicked out for not having health insurance, rest assured they got a bag full of money in lawsuits.

Taxes are a bitch. I finally coughed up the almost two thousand dollars I owed the American government.

People can't be denied emergency care, but they can be sent home WAY to early or denied non-emergent care. I've seen that happen, and no lawsuits yet.

The New Kyoto Rule Book on Taxes

By

James Bredin

The new Kyoto religious rule book is not strange,
The result of UN framework on climate change,
You will have to read it and our problems will be solved,
Though the Americans and Australians are not involved.

And India and China are allowed to walk free,
They’re considered developing nations, you see,
If your factory makes emissions and they’re told to stop,
They might move to China while your job gets the chop.

The seas could rise tomorrow and the sky might fall,
Small islands could disappear and leave nothing at all,
Therefore mandatory commitment from politicians,
And your total dedication regardless of conditions.

And your taxes might double for the climate change fund,
They need money and you’ll be overtaxed and stunned,
It’s for your own good though, to stop all this climate change,
Laid out in the new rule book and it’s all pre arranged.

Caged carbon $credits for Swiss-account dictators,
You will agree or be listed with other traitors,
And you probably think that none of this is true,
Please wake up because this is about to debut.

They need a spiritual commitment on you part,
Total dedication – body, soul, mind and heart,
Americans and Australians can sit back and look on,
Chretien trapped us on this board like a pompous little pawn.

What's a FUTA tax? What's a CDL license tax? The vast majority of the taxes you list are permit fees, not taxes. You need to figure out what you're talking about.

GST isn't on everything, it's not on food.

"Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago and our nation was
prosperous, had absolutely no national debt, had one of the
largest middle class in the world and Mom stayed home to raise the kids!"

Of course those things didn't exist 100 years ago; how could you have a tax on things that didn't exist. You think our country was propserous in 1906? You want Mom to stay home to raise the kids? What if Mom doesn't want to raise the kids? What if Grandma and Grandpa don't want to live with us, (but have to, because otherwise they'll starve); what if I don't want the child mortality rate and shorter life expectancy?
What if I don't want to work 6 ten hour days every week?

You want to go back to 1906, go right ahead.

Whether it's a fee or tax, the money comes from your wallet.

The sad thing is the list is just going to get longer and longer.

It wasn't that list of taxes that got us our debt. It was the 40 to 50 billion dollar deficits Mulroney had every year he was in office. I know the right wingers like to blame Trugeau but nobody held a gun to Mulroney's head and forced him to run a deficit every year.

And yet despite our massive debt, the Government of Canada is prepared to shove tax cuts and tax credits through the Parliament of Canada, daring the opposition to do anything about it. We shouldn't be decreasing taxes until our debt has been resolved.

You're right Five

I think Canadians would gladly pay higher taxes to get rid of the debt. I know I would. I've always thought that the GST revenues should be used exclusively to pay down the debt as well as any budget surplus.

Can somebody please show all the additional provincial Taxes and fees etc.

How about running away from it all, visiting the closest National Park.
You pay again of course.
And then Tax on the Tax....
no end.
But taxfree day is coming >>>>July xx or so ....relief.

What gets me, is the little return for those dollars.

Every (Government) monetary transaction has a money wasting reaction!!!

-We now have over 32 million people.

100 years ago (1906), health care wasn't free. The Canada National Medicare System wasn't introduced until 1968 by Lester B. Pearson.

-We hand out foreign aid like candy.

-We go on useless missions like Afghanistan.

-We have hundreds of thousands of kilometers of roads to maintain.

-We have thousands of teachers to pay so they can educate students.

-We have 62,000 military officials to pay, plus we have to pay for all this military equipment.

-We have immigration programs that help immigrants when they come to Canada.

-We give the Aboriginals about $9 billion a year.

-We have all sorts of environmental programs to pay for.

And the list goes on and on. That is why we have so many taxes.

I would personally prefer the debt to remain exactly where it is. Let inflation erode the debt. For example, 40 years ago a $10,000 residential mortgage would be a significant debt. If it stayed as is, in 40 years a $10,000 debt is fairly insignificant. That way the holder of the debt could have a life and the burden on future generation is peanuts. I'm for balanced budgets but not screwing this generation in a race to pay everyone's past debt and leave the next one living the life of riley.
