Ooo-k. I wasn't going to respond but come on guys. Where do the kids get the money? They are in the 40% unemployed group. They get the money from their employed parents. A kid buying gum isn't suddenly being 'taxed' like he's been sprayed by a skunk or something. The money he got from his parents is being used to pay the tax. His parents pay the tax. If you have no income you do not pay tax. 60% of the population are income earners and so that proportion of the population pays tax. (Yes, social assistance and mat leave are taxed - but this is a clawback and so doesn't add to the tax pool)
