    Yeah I do actually..

    I feel your pain.

    You have what do they call it? value added tax?

    Remember we already have a 6% sales tax. This means in effect we could pay 11% tax for some services when you add the two.

    and also we have one of the higher property tax rate structures in the country.

    You have a good deal I would say.
    We have been paying at least 7% provincial ( some more, Alberta nothing ) and 7 % federal sales tax for years. The feds just reduced the rate to 6% a few months back.

    Depends where in Canada a person lives. We gotz us a whole lot of land with varied rates but in my area it is .. Real Property Tax Rates 8.21930 : $ per $1000 of Assessed Property

    btw... you can't find a house for that kind of money in my area and what you see above is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Right we have free health care. The our doctors are getting old and they want to retire. And there is no one to replace them. There are so many foreign doctors immigrating into this country. They come in the hope that they will be able to practice medicine here. We all know how that is going. Some of them are delivery pizza, or driving taxi.

    In the last election one of the parties campaigned that they would make it easier for foreign doctors to get their license here. But I think that was all talk, so they would get votes.

    If you are sick and have no family doctor, you go to a walk in clinic or the emergency, were you can be waiting all day.

    I heard that a pregnant lady went to emergency. She was bleeding, and she was told to wait, they would get to here when they can. She ended up miscarrying in the bathroom. Then they had time for her. :eek: :mad:

    Being near Canada we hear a lot of good and bad about the Canadian health care system.

    For example we hear that people come over to get care here because of the delay in treatment in Canada.

    any thoughts on that??
