Tally Woe: Would you trust a BC Finance Minister who CAN'T add or subtract in his 2014 Budget?

Neatness:  All the boxes are the same height, but it doesn't mean that the other Provinces are charging the same amount in each category, like say Health Premiums..... 

Provincial Income Tax
Net Property Tax
Sales Tax
Fuel Tax
Net Carbon Tax
Health Care Premiums

Neatness:  Comparable Taxes:  Carbon Tax????  Quebec, BC, and Alberta.  The majority don't!

 A spread of 6 bucks on two taxpayer categories, but if this is the way Finance Minister de Jong cooks the books for us, what's he doing with industries involving Millions, Billions and Trillions?

In 2011, the number of census families3 in British Columbia was 1,238,155, which represents a change of 6.6% from 2006. This compares to a growth rate for Canada of 5.5% over the same period.

In British Columbia, 71.7% of census families were married couples in 2011, while 13.0% were common-law-couples and 15.3% were lone-parent families.
No mention of Senior Couples and their EXTENDED families

Auditors need to take a Core Review look at de Jong pleasures.....
