It's that time of year again — when Canada's big corporate media outlets give the Fraser Institute uncritical coverage of its annual anti-tax report, even though it makes exaggerated claims about how much Canadians pay in taxes.

Using the Fraser Institute's mysterious "tax simulator," the right-wing think tank puts out a press release each year celebrating "the day that the average Canadian family has paid enough in taxes to pay their total tax bill for the year to all levels of government."

This year, the Toronto Sun's Brian Lilley apparently obtained an advance copy of the Fraser Institute's anti-tax report.
