winnipegsun.com - Editorial - Lighten our load, Mr. Harper: "Anyone who thinks Canadians aren't ready for major tax relief in today's budget -- the first federal Conservative budget in 13 years -- needs a reality check.
Most taxpayers are more than ready -- as indicated by the Fraser Institute study released last week showing that the total tax hit is now approaching 50% of the average Canadian family's income. And these aren't 'rich' people.
They're average families earning just under $61,000 per year, who now pay $28,467 in total taxes, more than they spend on food, shelter and clothing combined. "
