This Spreadsheet shows how unfair the Canadian Vehicle Tax System is and how it affects the poor far greater than the rich. This system artificially devalues vehicles and encourages vehicle manufacturers to build throwaway vehicles further contributing to climate change.

People should not be penalized for looking after their property or possessions and maintaining the value of them. And yet the spreadsheet above shows that at the extreme end of the scale, if a vehicle were sold every year for 16 years at 90% of the value (which is not uncommon for high end vehicles in the rest of the world), a total of 105.91% tax would have been paid on that vehicle.

Even at a more regular level like 80% of the value, the 3rd buyer would have already paid 31.72% tax, while a new car buyer (usually the highest earners) only pay 13% tax. This is even worse than poll tax and is just an outright tax for the poor.
