According to the Fraser Institute, a Canadian family’s biggest expenses is taxes. From my perspective, politicians, the media, etc. have indoctrinated our minds with the idea that an increase in taxes is not good for society. Interestingly, as taxes are cut, so are essential social services. Personally, I don’t mind paying taxes, but the problem is that I am skeptical as to what is being done with our taxes. It is not even clear to me what debt the Canadian government is paying that is preventing them from providing adequate social services for all (e.g. child care). Our governments need to be held more accountable because some of their actions are clearly not in the best interests of the public. Smh! When change does not make sense (i.e. tax cutbacks).
