Too Many Taxes

I own 3 houses in Vancouver and the government expects me to pay another six thousand dollars a year in taxes because of the value of the properties exceeding a predetermined threshold. This is absolutely unacceptable. Its just another example of robbing from the rich and giving to the poor. Money will probably go to vending machines for illegal drugs or more naloxone for drug addicts who can't stop overdosing. I can well afford to pay this tax but I am fundamentally against the message its sending. You shouldn't punish hard working people for being successful. I worked extremely hard for this wealth and its wrong to punish me for being successful.

You may indeed be hard-working, but the rise in value of your real estate required no work on your part.

Yeah, that's too bad. It doesn't always pay to be rich, there will always be taxes, and they will always increase. Guess you'll just have to get use to it, just like every other generation before you.

You can well afford to pay, so pay.
Stop the whining. People like you have had a free ride in this province for nearly 20 years. Time to do your part and pay your fair share.

Why don't you move to the good old USA. They appreciate people like you. Just don't forget to pack some heat and body armour.

Rich people don't work harder, they're just paid an obscene amount. It takes less than a month for a CEO to earn the salary that the average worker makes in a year. It's just an example of how unfair and rigged the system is.

Actually, federal Taxes in the USA are higher than in Canada.
