More Taxes

The Canadian government will be adding yet another tax to airline tickets. It will range from $2.58 to $8.91 for a one-way ticket. The reason the government gives is the all encompassing excuse of “enhanced security”.

The minimum Canadian taxes on the cheapest ($437) Vancouver to Montreal return flight ticket are currently $115.18.

This compares to a longer US return flight between Spokane and Florida which nets only $48 in taxes.
