Yesterday was Tax Freedom Day -- the day Canadians stop earning money that is handed over to the government, and start earning money they get to actually keep and spend.
Actually, no. Canadians love their social programs, we love our big governments and, as a result, we love our big taxes. That's why Canadian retailers regularly offer "Pay Twice The Tax!" sales events, and we Canadians flock to them!
In a perfect world, the government would take all our money, and re-distribute it in a wise, just, and equitable manner.
For now, we'll have to settle for the government taking half.
And that's the way the taxed Ball bounces.
