GST stands for Goods and Services Tax. It is a federal tax, canada wide, on all goods and services. (ie: if you buy a $1 pepsi the total after tax is $1.05)

PST stands for Provincial Sales Tax. Similar, but differs from province to province. Most are around 7%. Alberta doesn't have any, cuz they have so much oil money already.
PST does not apply to food, and a few other things.

You're probably thinking of paycheck deductions. These include: federal tax, empolyment insurance (goes into the social fund, incase you ever need to go on welfare or disability), and canada pension plan (so you get free money when you are a senior). These do add up to quite a bit... definitely not 48% though haha! Anywhere in the 10% - 22% range is normal (it depends on what tax bracket you are in... ie: the more you make the bigger percentage your deductions are). Most low end jobs though, receive 100% of your tax back in the spring when you do your taxes... so it doesn't matter anyway.

The other night on the Canadian National News they were talking about how right now Obama wants to introduce public health care (ie: canadian / european style) to the US and many lobbyists are spreading bullshit info about it to try and stop it. So silly that people actually don't want public health care lol... they are just misinformed I guess. Watch the documentary "Sicko" it puts things into perspective a bit.
This thread is wayyyyyy off topic now so I'll stop replying lol.

Its a local's hill, unless you are doing a pilgrimage to say you been to mecca...and if blessed it goes off while you're there...then all you'll want to do (really isn't anything else to do but) ride til exhaused, then drink...passout and hope you wake up early enough to get some fresh before the locals mob it.

Schweitzer is awesome, I second that.
Red Mountain is great for steep pow filled tree runs.
Whitewater is mellower inbounds but very advanced out of bounds and 1200cm a year is no joke.

Come to a place called Perisher in Australia. It's great fun at Perisher Valley, which is a terrain park. I was hitting that run hard after boarding for 3 days.
