    Welcome to the real world where social services provided by the government and paid by taxpayers.

    In 2014–15, First Nations tax exemptions on PST, HST and GST were worth roughly $237 million; personal income tax exemptions were $251 million; and fuel tax exemptions were $97 million. Tobacco tax exemptions were worth an incredible $686 million for total nearly $1.3 billion in one year alone !

      Government of Canada and provinces have taken trillions of dollars out of First Nations lands and continue to. Treaties exempt this taxation. If the whites don’t like it, go back to Europe and we will take care of our own country. Understand what these exemptions are about before spewing these numbers like it means anything. It’s a bloody pittance compared to what whites get back in return.

    Seems to me the employer has the obligation to withhold taxes. This being said if they did not then they should be held responsible.
