For example, it is expected that on July 1st the price of a litre of fuel will increase by 7%. All additional tax on tax.

I wonder how much more I would have paid out on stuff over the years if I had to pay PST, or into the future if we had the HST coming in. I bet it more then paid for my Escape trailer.

edit: I just did a quick calculation of paying 7% tax on $30k/year of taxable spending for 30 years.....YIKES......$63k......WOW.....and I am being very conservative in my numbers.
