You renew your license every year? last I checked it was every 5 years. Insurance companies profit off of you - that's not tax. Same with oil companies. HST is applied to the car only at time of purchase. None of these are recurring yearly taxes but the roads are yearly recurring expenses. The tax on our gas does not cover the equivalent wear and tear and maintenance resulting from each km driven on the road.

You want to talk about the big picture? Shall we discuss auto maker bailouts? The HUGE tax breaks that oil and car companies get while the little guy pays through the nose? Or social cost externalities? Probably not because these are beyond your knuckle dragging comprehension.

It is mathematically proven that we drivers are heavily subsidized. Again, you don't have to believe it but closing your eyes doesn't make it go away.

Try not to get too close to the edge of the earth when you're out fishin'
