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.
This has to be a joke. You want to give millionaires tax exemptions? Do you pay taxes? Cuz I don't want to pay Mr. Gomez's share because he makes 10000x more than I do.

Two days ago I went to Toronto and on the way back it was so funny to see that as soon as I crossed the Quebec border the roads got progressively worse. It's like night and day. The roads in Toronto are actually smooth and without holes everywhere!

We don't need better roads as much as hockey players need a new car, though. Let's not go crazy here.
