This was the chaos our new tax is creating ...
Starting tomorrow everything will be taxed by 13%
Right now we currently have two taxes, the GST and PST. (6% and 7%). Certain things (such as fuel) were only charged one tax. Starting July 1st, tomorrow, everything will be charged 13% ...

The line ups at the pumps today were HUGE. The gas was 94.9 cents at Canadian Tire.
Our gas station customers were in today. They told us to fill up today if we could. We could see a jump of 10-13 cents PER litre by tomorrow ... What a fun way to start the summer....

Um, here that price is PER LITRE. You guys pay PER GALLON! So your gas is much cheaper!

1 gallon is equal to 3.785 litres.

So starting tomorrow we will be paying over $4.00 / gallon!

That...is...ridiculous. Last summer it got to be pretty terrible here in US too, gas prices hit an all time high around $4.05/gallon here. It was dreadful. Now, it's just under $3, about $2.79 or so.

Good luck with that increase :/, and Happy Canada day!
