Hi there friend, yes I'm out on the left coast..and I know your aware of what B.C. (British Columbia) stands for, "Bring Cash!" It is ridiculous here in lefty lala land. There are so many taxes, hidden taxes (the government even admits there are hidden socialist taxes because the majority here are socialist), environut taxes, luxury taxes, carbon taxes, gas guzzler taxes, provincial taxes, PST, GST, property transerfer taxes, social housing taxes (a mininum of all housing must now contain, get this, at least 20% "non for profit, non marketable, social housing" for those that don't pay taxes etc.) Then there is the new man made global warming taxes, cap and trade taxes, pickup truck "idling" fines of up to $2,000, a multi tear Hydro electricity tax (you pay for the electricity you use but if you use a "k" more than a 250 square foot condo/apt. they dump a second teir "green" usage tax on you adding 25% to my bill) I could of course go on and on lol! Oh..and then there are the Olympics that are costing us around a half a trillion when its all in..welcome to a new age envirosocialist/communist, fascist world..and its steam rolling even faster.
If Alberta elects a true conservative government I think we'll just move there.
