Im also pretty sure if they have children they send them to private school meaning they dont take advantage of the public school system and I also highly doubt any of these players will be collecting unemploymentanytime soon. At the end of the day these players are paying there taxes for clean streets and waste disposal( I know theres probably a lot more) but seriously should they even be paying high taxes for things they'll never even take advantage of.
I can choose to go to private clinics, send my kids to private schools and live somewhere else for half the year.
This is one of the dumbest ideas i've ever seen in my life. You collect a salary in Quebec you pay the taxes for the salary you make just like everyone else.
If hockey players of all people are exempt from paying taxes then I would rather montreal not have an NHL team.
