Aboriginal HST PROTEST!!!
 Causes - Protest
 Thursday, 22 April 2010
 09:00 - 17:00
 Queens Park Toronto
 "HST affects everyone, so even if you are not Aboriginal and wish to
 come and support us in this protest you are more then welcome to come
 out and you are encouraged to do so.
 On July 1st the Government is taking away our inherent right to point
 of sale tax exemption unless we all unite to be heard.
 We Native poeple of Ontario have to come together and fight for our
 right of point of sale tax exemption because once the government takes
 it away we will never get it back, so we must stop it beforeit is
 pushed through.
 It is Illegal and Immoral for the Federal Government to ignore our
 treaty's and turn their backs on us.
 Large protests and demands have worked in the past. If we organize a
 lot of protests then the goverment has no choice but to cave in.
 Remember when young people protested the changes to young drivers by
 the Liberals by using facebook. It sure has worked before so we have
 to make it work this time or it will forever be just another thing
 stripped from our rights and gone for good.
 Please invite anyone and everyone to this protest and come out and
 fight for our rights! The only way we can do this is by getting off
 our butts and assemble in this protest. It is important that as many
 people come as possible so please let's get the word out of this event
 and stop the hst!
 "HST IN ONTARIO... this approved proposal, which will take affect this
 year, is only designed to keep Ontario from progressing..... it takes
 more money out of the hands of the improverished and First Nations
 people. As a First Nations person, I refuse to pay the HST because it
 is illegal for a nation to tax another nation, such as FIRST NATIONS
 The new 13% tax will therefore apply to things like your electric
 bill, your gas bill, your water bill, condominium fees, insurance
 premiums, and every other good and service you purchase. There are
 almost no exemptions.
 The extension of the new 13% GST/PST to homes is simply a tax assault
 by the government on your primary home. They want to tax your primary
 home and you will suffer because of it.
 Why? Because if a purchaser has to pay almost $200,000 in taxes to buy
 your $1 million dollar home, the purchaser is going to pay less to you
 for your home. The purchaser will reduce the amount he or she is
 willing to pay to you in order to pay all the taxes.
 The New 13% Tax Will Effectively Raise Your Income Taxes Currently,
 the combined Federal/Ontario income tax rates are roughly 25% on the
 first $20,000 of taxable income, 42% on the next $40,000 of taxable
 income, and 46.5% on each dollar of taxable income over $60,000. On
 top of that you have to add the "Fair Share Health Tax" of up to
 $1,000 each of us has to pay.
 If the Ontario Government gets away with implementing their new
 harmonized GST/PST sales tax of 13%, the top effective income tax
 rates in Ontario will be as follows (since you can't spend any of your
 tax paid dollars without paying the new harmonized 13% GST/PST tax):
 38% on the first $20,000
 53% on the next $40,000
 59.5% on every dollar over $60,000
 On top of that, you have to pay your Ontario Fair Share Health Tax,
 your city realty taxes, your city garbage fees, your city water fees,
 your city street parking permit fees, your annual Ontario and new city
 of toronto vehicle license plate fees, your Ontario land transfer tax,
 your new city of toronto land transfer tax, your gasoline taxes, your
 liquor taxes, your air departure
 taxes, your entertainment taxes, and so on.
 While you can see above that the tax is not only a First Nations
 violation of rights, it is also a violation of rights of the Tax
 Payer. Many of times I have sat in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario
 and witnessed many of these Liberal Ontario elected officials not even
 be present when the questions of their misspending comes forth, while
 they are making huge, profit gaining deals, like those with
 international corporations like Samsung to gain profit on behalf of
 Ontarians. These people are only out to line their pockets with cash.
 I will say this, because I don't care right now... Dalton McGuinty is
 the WORST thing to ever happen to Ontarians, and at this point, he's
 probably made so much money off private deals for Ontario that it
 doesn't matter whether or not he ever gets re-elected.
 The only thing that I can say at this point is that for those of you
 who don't vote and don't contribute to any of the causes that you
 believe in, you thus leave decision making, like the HST to people
 like Dalton McGuinty.....but.. you also leave it to people like
 activists to fight for your rights in decisions that will affect your
 life and you leave it to politicians like Dalton McGuinty to make
 choices for you. Regardless of what your or our opinions are, please
 make sure that everyone knows what you think, because each and
 everyone person on this group and beyond are sooo important to the
 collective and I want to say Miigwetch to every single one of you...
 because it is only you who can make change!"
