    There will be no help for Ontario entrepreneurs in the future. Most small businesses are started with an individual's savings and have to get through a tough start up period.
    The individuals have to pay both employer and employer portion of CPP which is 4.8% x 2 or 9.6% of income and now Ontario is planning on starting it's own defined benefit pension with costs starting at 1.9% x 2. This means that entrepreneurs will have to pay mandatory 13.4% premium/ tax on top of income taxes.
    Ontario says that they are not going to invest the money but spend it on infrastructure, so it is just another tax in disguise! A bridge or road that wears out won't give us a retirement income.
    The lowest Ontario tax bracket is 5.05% so 3.6% is a very significant tax grab. Looks like about a 70% increase!

    Please don't vote for the Liberals again or start looking for an exit from Ontario strategy.
