Binge watching shows on Netflix is one of my favourite things to do. With a toddler at home Julie and I don’t get out much, so being able to curl up and watch movies and TV shows after Marshall goes to bed is one of our favourite things to do.

Right now, Canadian streaming services are forced to charge sales taxes to their customers, but that isn’t the case for more popular internationally based sites such as Netflix or Amazon Prime.
I guess it’s only fair that if the Canadian services have to charge it, that the international ones would to…BUT that doesn’t mean I have to like it! And if they start taxing Netflix, what’s to stop them for slapping taxes on other internet services in the future?
