Just got back from Vancouver (Canada) and their property taxes are buttons compared to us. Like for a home which costs £800k in Richmond is comparable to a home which costs £200K here in the UK in terms of council tax. Their houses are also massive. However they are extremely expensive. Property prices over there are insane, well in downtown Vancouver and Richmond area. Like in high point homes are $5-$12 million a piece. Similar sized home here would be like £800,000. A lot of rich chinese flooding the area. I mean 90% of people in Vancouver and Richmond are Chinese. Saw at least 20 lambos, ferraris, aston martins, etc. Their taxes are a low lower too and their minimum wage is higher than the UK. VAT is like 12% there. Minimum wage is like £10 per hour and most places have a minimum tip of like 18-20% added onto the bill if you have a party of like 5 or more.
