Actually the federal tax includes the provincial taxes(except Quebec), which are turned over to the provinces. The federal gov't only acts as collector. Quebec chooses to collect its own prov tax-vive la difference. A few years ago there was a comparison of total taxes between NY and Ontario by a national magazine. It showed that the Ontario taxes were lower. Studies have shown when total taxes are compared there was only about 10% difference between the two countries. For example, higher federal taxes but considerably lower school taxes. Just to be kind to you, the survey showed that Texas had lower overall taxes than Canada and NY state.

Remember those are only Canadian FEDERAL taxes. My understanding that Provincial and local taxes are also typically higher than their US counterparts.
