Another interesting study from IRIS, the Quebec think tank. The perception is that residents of the Belle Province pay more taxes than anybody else in North America. This supposed tax discrepancy is grist for the mill of "fiscally responsible" folks in various political parties.
But it seems that we're not taxed all that badly, and middle income famlies are doing quite nicely, thank you, when compared with their opposite numer in other jurisdictions. Defintely worth looking at in depth.
