Praise for Tax Me I’m Canadian!
“If this book gives you the ammunition to embarrass just one politician into rethinking scandalously profligate policies, it’ll be worth the price.” -Don Cayo, Vancouver Sun
“It's Milke's tax history lesson that offers the most brilliant inspiration: Let's take back our heritage. Let's go back to our Canadian roots. No more ‘American-style’ taxes on everything that moves. Let's embrace the tax freedom Sir Wilfrid Laurier and others held dear.” – Toronto Sun
From Mark Milke’s Tax Me I’m Canadian!
The American origins of Canadian tax:
“When Canadian politicians imposed additional and higher taxes in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, they invariably did so only after the Americans acted first. As well, there were direct legislative influences on Canadian tax laws both federally and provincially. Think of almost any modern Canadian tax: federal income, gasoline, property and corporate; almost all have American origins.”
On early Canadian statesmen:
“Beyond the debts that plagued pre-Confederation colonies, farsighted legislators envisioned a larger country that would create a more prosperous British North America and benefit everyone. In economic lingo, it was a laissez-faire argument for how to pay for needed services and capital improvements and yet keep the tax burden reasonable: expand the economy, and government spending and debt becomes less costly per person as the overall economy grows.”
Subsidies to business:
“It is sometimes difficult to sort out the supposedly capitalist CEOs from the normally anti-business union leaders. A few years after the Chrysler-GM bailout and in an astonishing display of chutzpah, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne spoke of the “wealth gap” and denounced “corporate greed”…. Apparently Marchionne saw no irony nor greed in how just two years previous, Chrysler’s executives and union leaders demanded money from the public purse at the expense of other businesses and taxpayers across the country.”
The problem of Aboriginal isolationism:
“Advocacy for greater pureness of culture and demands for separateness, isolation, and sovereignty based on a mythologized approach to one’s ancestors, is no more healthy for native Canadians or helpful to remote reserves now, than when such notions animated the American South in the 1870s. Such harmful and divisive ideas are propelled ahead ad nauseam by some native leaders, sycophantic politicians and academics who are either too daft to know, or too deceitful to admit, that they advance a profoundly anti-liberal agenda.”
