Total Taxes For Average Canadian Family Increased 1,600 % Since 1961!
CTV reports that the total tax bill for the average canadian family has increased 1,600 % since 1961 as released by the Fraser Institute. The Fraser Institute study finds that Canadians now pay more annually in taxes than they spend on shelter, food and clothing combined! By the way these are all taxes combined. British Columbia at 49.1 percent imposes the heaviest tax burdens in Canada. You should be happy to know that Langley Township's property tax increases of 5% this year and upcoming compounded 5% tax increases in the next 2 years following are not included yet in these numbers! Joy. Don't you feel better now?....
