Hey all, 

was wondering why all of a sudden after years I am being charged GST/HST while I live in alberta?

My bill is always the same but this month there was an increase and thats why?

I believe that there was an increase in the 911 fee by 50 odd cents or so. How much did it go up by? Did you check closely in page 3 where the increase showed up?

@gchester Not sure what you by “all of a sudden”….provincial taxes are tied to your area code. You have an Ontario one, hence the Ontario tax.
