Taxes

Most provincial revenue comes from taxes, which in turn funds the services we use.  How the province chooses to brings in its revenue matters: over the years, our tax burden has shifted away from corporations and onto the individual consumer. While user fees have also steadily increased, the HST most recently has became the lightning rod for voters angry at financial decisions being made which disregard the interest of individuals in favour of business.  Future governments now know that the public must be included in decisions that affect our pocket books.
