How to Be a Better Canadian: Drink Canadian wine

  1. We do not drink in Canada. Just too taxing, it became revenge for a rude taxed year.

    Its not hard to drop $100 for wine, spirits, beer a week per person. But if you put $5,200 in a TFSA for 40 years at 6% return or so, you would have a million tax free spendable cash.

    Or its 2 weeks for two at an good all inclusive where you can drink a lot, eat a lot, sun in shorts and not parkas…..

    Or in a cash account, invest it to retire early. Or pay the mortgage down to reduce tax payed money going out the door and reduce risk.

    And I bet many a drinker spends a lot more than $100/week on mostly taxes. Some I bet even carry credit card balances so $100 to booze, $200 in carry charges, possibly $3 million out he window in 40 years of doing this.
