Canada water tax up 13,477%
Turning to other incomprehensible government action, Ontario has increased the charge for extracting water from $3.71 per million litres to $503.71.
This applies to bottled water, but not to water extraction for alcohol and some other purposes.
The Canadian Bottled Water Association has calculated that Ontario’s bottled water industry extracts as much water in a year as ten golf courses.
Guess how many golf courses there are in Ontario. Eight hundred and twenty five !
You couldn’t make this up.
