I have heard from a probably reliable source that, as large as AAA was in the US (and the indictment in Seattle alleges a tax loss of $40+ million), it was even larger in Canada. This may be function of higher Canadian tax rates (One of my friends jokes that the original Native American meaning of the word "Canada" is "go back, the taxes are unsupportable."), but it may also relate to a deeper penetration of the anti-tax rhetoric. Canada's population is only a fraction of that of the US.
