There seems to be a misconception that Quebec taxes are higher than taxes in that bracket elsewhere. They aren't from what I understand, except for states that don't collect income tax like FLorida and Texas, etc. Just a thought.
i hope you were kidding with this post...

more tax breaks for millionaires on the basis of wanting to attract better hockey players?

come on...

have you driven on the roads in "la belle province"? have you strolled around the neighborhoods of montreal north? have you seen the state of most schools, public sports facilities, libraries etc across the city and province?
