by Jean-Serge Brisson This is the story of one man who takes on the big guys and doesn’t give up. It is an inspirational story – not many of us would have the intestinal fortitude to stand alone for 23 years and counting. It’s also a story with a twist – when you purchase the book directly from Mr. Brisson, it comes with an invoice from his radiator business which clearly states: “This firm does not collect taxes. If you feel this tax should be paid you may send it yourself”. Get the book – read it – you’ll understand. In 1974, Brisson opened his own radiator repair business with the expectation that he would be working for himself. However, in a province burdened by an ever-growing government, there was going to be less of that and more of working for the state. Brisson notes that until 1985, customers had the choice to pay provincial sales tax (PST) at the point of sale or upon government demand whereby the government had to collect the taxes directly from the customers. In 1985, politicians changed the law thereby requiring all businessmen to collect its PST regardless of the will of customers. Brisson realized that this compulsion to collect taxes had effectively made him a slave. He was legally compelled to do physical work on behalf of the state and had no choice about it.
