I live in the most expensive country in the world. That's right Canada is the most expensive country in the world to live in. Sure everyone thinks Canada is so nice and peaceful and beautiful. Well here are some hard facts.

The income tax in Canada is 50%, that's right whatever money you earn, the government takes half of it right off the bat!!!. Then there are the provincial and federal taxes on top of that, ok so the government went and stole half your money as soon as you got paid, then they charge you another 13% in HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) yep so you have half your money you earned and now anything you buy is also taxed. Then the goods already have a lot of tax. Gas is $6.25 a gallon, a loaf of bread is $3.00 and a simple dinner of fish & chips is $22.00. You can't even get a hamburger from McDonalds for under $8.00.

Canada is in the artic region so we have winters for 6 months of the year. Well you need to heat your house all the time to live, a basic heat and hydro bill is about $500 a month on an average home, and don't forget to add that HST tax to that of another 13%. You want cable TV? That's $250/month and don't forget that HST on top of that.

So to live in Canada you essentially need to be making $100,000/year just to live ok, most people don't make that kind of money as average wage is about $50,000/year so everyone scrapes by from month to month.

Thank you Canadian Government for making me live in poverty by stealing half my wages!!

I say FU to the Queen, we need to start a Revolution in this country!!!

He is a liberal, today is the provincial elections in Ontario, the Liberals are the most hated party now and looks like they might not even get a seat in the house. Their rating plummeted to 7%. Looks like it's between the Conservatives and the New Democrats, I think the New Democrats will win tonight, the polls close at 9pm

But everyone hates the Liberals now

I personally think all politicians are liars anyways, so I don't bother voting, it doesn't matter they are all corrupt.

This petty nickel and dime talk of struggling bills doesn't sound like the previous GQ centerfold, living lavish while bathing in his pool of money.

"The income tax in Canada is 50%, that's right whatever money you earn, the government takes half of it right off the bat!!!"

I'm hardly a Canada tax expert, but due to such bullsh*t tax claims I have heard say from Fox news when they talk about Sweden tax rates due to the entitlements and then later finding out the Nordic welfare (for the poor and average) bashes weren't exactly being accurate, I wasn't just going to take your word for it. So I wanted to looked up some numbers on how Canada taxes and this is what I found...

Federal tax rates for 2018
15% on the first $46,605 of taxable income, +

Then as I understand you add the province you live in tax (different tax rates for different province) Is that how it works ? So as an example I just took the first one

Newfoundland and Labrador
8.7% on the first $36,926 of taxable income,

15% HST ?

That's not exactly 50% even if you combine it all. Then there are the tax deductions/offsets

The GST/HST credit is a tax-free quarterly payment that helps individuals and families with low and modest incomes offset all or part of the GST or HST that they pay. ( need more info on exact numbers here)

The working income tax benefit (WITB) is a refundable tax credit intended to provide tax relief for eligible working low-income individuals and families who are already in the workforce and to encourage other Canadians to enter the workforce. (Need more info on exact numbers here)

This is hardly a complete list, but I just wanted to get a general gist of things in Canada. Suffice to say I am very suspicious of your claim that your get 50 percent taken right of the top.

And before you start talking like this, how much tax do you REALLY PAY once you factor in deductions/offsets (government welfare/payments if any). If you want to share such information, could be informative.

Yeah but that money goes into paying for social systems. I'm not very familiar with Canada but in Finland the taxes are absurdly high, however on average the Finnish citizen is better of than an American citizen due to their effective use of socialism. Is Canada really so incredibly worse of than lower GDP European Socialist Countries?

Let me school you on the taxes since I live in Canada.

The income tax that is deducted from my paycheck is 50%. That includes 26% federal tax, 11% provincial tax, 8% EI, Unemployment tax, 5% RPP retirement pension.

The HST in Ontario is 13 percent, (7%provincial tax + 5% GST- goods and services tax)

Now the GST tax credit goes ONLY to people who make under $40,000/year. The tax credit is $50, four times a year for a total of $200. Which is dick because you will spend 3 times that in GST tax in a year when you buy goods like groceries.

I'm not eligible for that GST refund because I make over the poverty line.

You were only looking at the federal income tax, that is not the only tax that the greedy government takes from peoples paychecks

Yeah I get free healthcare, that is it for the $40,000 I pay a year in tax!!!

Daycare is $2000.00 a month, no wonder Canadians aren't having kids,

And yes Canada is way worse than those socialist countries. What do I get in Canada for $40,000/year in tax, free healthcare which is standard in most places in the world like Cuba, Venezuela, and they don't have to live in the arctic cold for 6 months of the year.

So yeah Canada looks like a beautiful country with their red maple leaf trees and all the lakes and scenery but try living here, you live like a slave barely getting by every month. It's not like Hollywood portrays it that money grows on trees here, you have to work like a dog 60 hours a week just to be able to pay the taxes

Thank you British system of having royalty and the rest of us are just peasants.

I was only looking at federal income tax ? even though I bought up the province tax and HST tax ? Seriously ?


You say your pay 26% income tax. But is that 26% of your entire income, or is that 26% the highest tax bracket you pay, which means you have other income taxed at a lower level, which means your overall federal tax percentage of income would be lower than 26%.

15% on the first $46,605 of taxable income, +
20.5% on the next $46,603 of taxable income (on the portion of taxable income over 46,605 up to $93,208), +
26% on the next $51,281 of taxable income (on the portion of taxable income over $93,208 up to $144,489),

Also I have to look up unemployment tax and retirement tax.

The income tax in Canada is 50%, that's right whatever money you earn, the government takes half of it right off the bat!!!. Then there are the provincial and federal taxes on top of that, ok so the government went and stole half your money as soon as you got paid, then they charge you another 13% in HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) yep so you have half your money you earned and now anything you buy is also taxed. Then the goods already have a lot of tax. Gas is $6.25 a gallon, a loaf of bread is $3.00 and a simple dinner of fish & chips is $22.00. You can't even get a hamburger from McDonalds for under $8.00.

Canada is in the artic region so we have winters for 6 months of the year. Well you need to heat your house all the time to live, a basic heat and hydro bill is about $500 a month on an average home, and don't forget to add that HST tax to that of another 13%. You want cable TV? That's $250/month and don't forget that HST on top of that.

So to live in Canada you essentially need to be making $100,000/year just to live ok, most people don't make that kind of money as average wage is about $50,000/year so everyone scrapes by from month to month.

Thank you Canadian Government for making me live in poverty by stealing half my wages!!

I say FU to the Queen, we need to start a Revolution in this country!!!

"The income tax in Canada is 50%, that's right whatever money you earn, the government takes half of it right off the bat!!!"

I'm hardly a Canada tax expert, but due to such bullsh*t tax claims I have heard say from Fox news when they talk about Sweden tax rates due to the entitlements and then later finding out the Nordic welfare (for the poor and average) bashes weren't exactly being accurate, I wasn't just going to take your word for it. So I wanted to looked up some numbers on how Canada taxes and this is what I found...

Federal tax rates for 2018
15% on the first $46,605 of taxable income, +

Then as I understand you add the province you live in tax (different tax rates for different province) Is that how it works ? So as an example I just took the first one

Newfoundland and Labrador
8.7% on the first $36,926 of taxable income,

15% HST ?

That's not exactly 50% even if you combine it all. Then there are the tax deductions/offsets

The GST/HST credit is a tax-free quarterly payment that helps individuals and families with low and modest incomes offset all or part of the GST or HST that they pay. ( need more info on exact numbers here)

The working income tax benefit (WITB) is a refundable tax credit intended to provide tax relief for eligible working low-income individuals and families who are already in the workforce and to encourage other Canadians to enter the workforce. (Need more info on exact numbers here)

This is hardly a complete list, but I just wanted to get a general gist of things in Canada. Suffice to say I am very suspicious of your claim that your get 50 percent taken right of the top.

And before you start talking like this, how much tax do you REALLY PAY once you factor in deductions/offsets (government welfare/payments if any). If you want to share such information, could be informative.

Let me school you on the taxes since I live in Canada.

The income tax that is deducted from my paycheck is 50%. That includes 26% federal tax, 11% provincial tax, 8% EI, Unemployment tax, 5% RPP retirement pension.

The HST in Ontario is 13 percent, (7%provincial tax + 5% GST- goods and services tax)

Now the GST tax credit goes ONLY to people who make under $40,000/year. The tax credit is $50, four times a year for a total of $200. Which is dick because you will spend 3 times that in GST tax in a year when you buy goods like groceries.

I'm not eligible for that GST refund because I make over the poverty line.

You were only looking at the federal income tax, that is not the only tax that the greedy government takes from peoples paychecks


I was only looking at federal income tax ? even though I bought up the province tax and HST tax ? Seriously ?

You say your pay 26% income tax. But is that 26% of your entire income, or is that 26% the highest tax bracket you pay, which means you have other income taxed at a lower level, which means your overall federal tax percentage of income would be lower than 26%.

15% on the first $46,605 of taxable income, +
20.5% on the next $46,603 of taxable income (on the portion of taxable income over 46,605 up to $93,208), +
26% on the next $51,281 of taxable income (on the portion of taxable income over $93,208 up to $144,489),

Also I have to look up unemployment tax and retirement tax.

The income tax and the HST tax are two different things. The income tax is deducted from you pay before you even get paid, the HST is a tax that you pay after on everything you buy with half your paycheck. The Unemployment tax you pay is a form of protection if you lose your job, they will pay 46% of your wage you made for up to 1 year to help you find a new job, well if you have never been fired, you can't collect that money, even though you paid into it. And the retirement tax is your government pension which is $410/month. Who the fvck can live off that when an average cost of living in Canada is $5000/ month and if you are retired you probably need medication which is not covered either.

Yeah but that money goes into paying for social systems. I'm not very familiar with Canada but in Finland the taxes are absurdly high, however on average the Finnish citizen is better of than an American citizen due to their effective use of socialism. Is Canada really so incredibly worse of than lower GDP European Socialist Countries?

Yeah I get free healthcare, that is it for the $40,000 I pay a year in tax!!!

Daycare is $2000.00 a month, no wonder Canadians aren't having kids,

And yes Canada is way worse than those socialist countries. What do I get in Canada for $40,000/year in tax, free healthcare which is standard in most places in the world like Cuba, Venezuela, and they don't have to live in the arctic cold for 6 months of the year.

So yeah Canada looks like a beautiful country with their red maple leaf trees and all the lakes and scenery but try living here, you live like a slave barely getting by every month. It's not like Hollywood portrays it that money grows on trees here, you have to work like a dog 60 hours a week just to be able to pay the taxes

Thank you British system of having royalty and the rest of us are just peasants.

If life is so bad in Canada why is their lowest happiness index ranking 7th? And are you saying that life in Canada is worse than life in Venezuela?

I don't know about Venezuela, but I have been to Cuba and they live in poverty in shacks and an average Cuban makes $15/month yet they are so happy as people, I had complete strangers invite me to their homes for dinner just to share stories with them and they have no money and they were so friendly and happy, they just have some alcohol and socialize and are generally happy people.

Meanwhile in Canada it's just a big rat race and the government just puts their grubby hands into all your business and steals all your hard earned wages, the more you earn the more they take. makes me wonder why I even bother working, hell I think I will go on welfare and have the government pay me
