You like travelling? The government wants to make that more expensive

Kathleen Wynne’s budget proposed a new tax that will increase the average price of an overseas trip for a family of four by hundreds of dollars. This 148% hike on aviation fuel tax, from 2.7 to 6.7 cents per litre, comes at a time when other jurisdictions like British Columbia have eliminated this tax altogether.

Flying in Canada is already obscenely expensive, thanks to a host of taxes, fees, charges, rents, and regulations imposed by both the federal and provincial governments.
