New gas guzzler taxes in Canada !!

I haven't noticed hardly any talk of it since it came to be in April.
Taxed up to $4000 depending on which vehical you buy.(Trucks are not included)
It goes up in $1000 increments and you have to pay this tax at the time of purchase.Also you can't include this extra cost in your financing.
They call it the green tax. Where does this money go?
On the plus side if you want to buy an electric car or something that gets 100mpg I guess you can recieve up to $2000 cash back.
This tax includes car,vans and suvs.
Can't win.

If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. When it stops moving, subsidize it.

Stop..

All of you should just stop buying cars and trucks for about a year. They'll love that. :lol:

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

And people ask me why I left.......gee whiz...

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting.."holy crap.... what a ride!"

Like that story about the Kentucky old lady.If that were my old lady (25) she'd be in jail right now!
Well people ,I sure do like this forum,especially for all the Ford teck,but you sure do have some really good topics invovling our screwed up leaders of this country.
Just a thought-If all us Big Block Ford guys got together I think we would have our own army.We could at least take on the Canadian goverment without a problem,right. I wish.
Nice country and all just really messed up leaders,or too many.
Oh !! and your missing about 11,000,000 immigrants,probably most of them of here just in case your looking for them.
