A new Study by the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives has just released a report on the Canadian tax system.

The report concludes that:
Higher income earners have reaped larger benefits than low and middle income earners. Indeed the lowest income earners have had an increase to their tax rates, while the highest earners saw a tax rate cut double that of the middle income earners. The middle income families are paying six percentage points more than the top 1% families.

The main culprit was found to be a result of provincial taxation, though billions of dollars from post 2000 federal cuts played a part as well.
