Arrow Tens of thousands protest tax hikes in Quebec!


Tens of thousands protest tax hikes

The Ottawa CitizenApril 12, 2010 Tens of thousands of people described by organizers as members of Quebec's "silent majority" demonstrated peacefully Sunday in front of the provincial legislature against tax hikes in the recent provincial budget. Organizers put the number of participants at 45,000 to 50,000. They assembled on the Plains of Abraham and marched to the national assembly, brandishing brooms, mops and picket signs, and called for the government to clean up its own spending before imposing new taxes. The budget proposes, over two years, a 15-per-cent sales tax, after harmonization of the Quebec sales tax with the federal goods and services tax.
another protest yesterday in quebec city!

see people actually get off their asses now & again

they are actually doing the right thing. We should be doing the same as well. They are planning on raising the taxes here in ontario as well, but offer nothing more in return. That guy miller found 100 million extra in his budget and he does not know where it came from. Yet he is still raising taxes.

the problem is majority of the taxes goes to pay the bloated salaries of government workers,the police budget and the TTC budget almost %80 is for salaries.Unless we privatize the non emergency jobs we will have to suck it up because we know people in Ontario dont protest,unless your a tamil tiger...we are getting tax to death and we dont do chit.In europe they have riots,in Canada we buy a double double......

do you think the government will listen,no.doesn't a democracy act on behalf of the people.what percentage of canadians do you think support this new bullshit harmonized tax.they don't put our best interest first,they just line their fat greedy wallets.everytime they **** up,we pay and pay.
they tell us how,when,where.democracy=joke.
i'm just tired of giving those assclowns 50% of my money.what do they do to deserve half my money.we are being nickled and dimed to death.
bullies push and push til someone pushes back.

of course not! they're probably even convinced we buy their assinine pitch of 'the billions in tax breaks to Corporations, yeah the saving will be passed down to us'

Ignatieff supports the HST tax on Ontario and BC, and wants it extended to the whole country

this nwo elistist dipshit also co-signed with harper on a bill saying Canadians should go to jail for 2yrs for smoking a joint in a park.
