Paul Willcocks, writing in The Tyee, has crunched the numbers and has come up with the answers you most definitely have not seen in the rest of the Lotuslandian proMedia.
Here is is Mr. Willcock's lede, but I highly recommend you click through and read the entire thing:
Christy Clark likes talking about B.C.'s low taxes.
But since she's been premier, a fairly typical retired couple has seen their provincial taxes increase by 19 per cent.
A low-income family with two children has faced an even larger increase, paying 20 per cent more in provincial taxes since Clark's first budget in 2012. That's an increase of 4.6 per cent a year, more than twice the inflation rate.
There is nothing wrong with higher taxes, if they're equitable and the money helps build a stronger society.
But Clark falls down badly on equity, according to this week's budget documents.
While seniors getting by on modest pensions and low-income families have faced 20 per-cent tax hikes, their more affluent neighbours have pretty much escaped tax increases...

And yes, the sub-header is all Paul's...
Also, here is his original Tweet that started the ball rolling...
