    Not unless there's a diesel engine under the hood. It's a good example, and I've provided several, they all amount to the same thing, lost tax revenue by hiding income. Come on, I'm very busy, you could have confirmed this with a little searching. There is no way to come up with definative...

    I'll call it as I see it. It's called an example. The amount of income hidden from the tax man is much bigger than you think. Estimates by knowlegable people say the drug industry is the biggest industry in B.C. What do you think that is worth in lost tax? You will be very surprised in about...

    Mako, you are a moron. How about you man up and admit you were wrong about many areas of this discussion. I provided you with many examples how income taxes can be easily avoided by anyone, you still cannot provide one example how consumtion taxes could be succesfully avoided, even though you...

    Yet the share price is falling, sounds like the investors do not agree the rate of return is high. You want them to pay more taxes??????? So the price of gas goes up more!!!!!!! You were just compaining about the price of gas, and now you want it to be even higher. That makes absolutly no sense...

    Does anyone else do this while driving?

    It depends on the situation. I will do it if there is no one else turning left with me, and it is a busy road with lots of oncoming traffic. If there is not much oncoming traffic, then no, I will wait until the oncoming traffic passes, then turn left. Yes, there are two sensors in the left...

    If your the Calculator Crusader, maybe you should get it out and use it. Did you even read the article!!!!!!! It clearly stated most of the profit was due to high oil prices, and those are not in the companies control, they are set by the buyers. Maybe you should try telling the shareholders...

    That rant was directed at me. Thanks for the info Maxx, I didn't have time to look that up. I think he realized he was wrong and gave up. I hate when the news puts up misleading statements about companies reporting record profits without any other info on ROI. I think the time for local...

    Perhaps you should read the the CRA statement on that. Zero-rated Some goods and services are taxable at the rate of 0% (zero-rated). This means GST/HST is not charged on the sale or supply of these goods and services. Some common examples of zero-rated goods and services are: •basic groceries...

    The GST is a national tax. The GST rebate applies equally across Canada. Down? Dude, oil isn't at $15 a barrel anymore, and probably never will be again. The only way I see oil going is up, a lot. So, there's a giant conspiracy to keep gas prices high, ya right, like the one where the...

    The HST will benefit low income more than having exemptions on PST since low income will get a rebate and higher income will not. With the PST exemptions both groups benefit equally. The rebate applies year round as well. Please reread the paragraph and clarify. What are you trying to say...

    2010 NHL Playoffs

    I can't believe I missed this thread!!!!! I am going with the team that has the player who won the Art Ross trophy. Go Hendrik and the Canucks. The Canucks have big depth in their team this year, it may be our best chance to take the cup this year.

    If it's not about rich and poor, why use an example of hardship among low income people? You forgot one very big difference between the PST and HST. The PST did not give a tax rebate to the low income people. The HST is linked to the GST and will give a tax rebate to the people in the low...

    As I understand it, the HST targets everything that the GST was already charged on. If you exempt essential items from taxes, you would also be providing a tax break for the rich as well. A much better solution is to charge a relatively low rate of tax over a wide range of items and those with...

    Favorite TV Shows Growing Up

    When I was young we only got two channels, CBC and CTV, so you watched whatever was on. Some of my favorites were: M.A.S.H Battlestar Galactica (the original) Space 1999 Fantasy Island B.J. and the Bear Buck Rodgers in the 25th Century The Bionic Man Starsky and Hutch The Love Boat Dukes of...

    The reason B.C. is going HST now is because Ontario is doing it now. B.C. was worried that the business investment would go to Ontario instead of B.C. if we didn't impliment the HST too. It is very unpopular with the public though, depending on what poll you look at, it's between 60 and 80%...
