Absoultely right.

If that $25 is in US dollars, that would translate into $37.50 per hour Canadian ($70,000 Canadian per year assuming a 37.5 hour work week and no vacation).

According to a pile of tax statistics I downloaded from the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency last year (1998 data), that would put you in the top 15% of tax filers by income.
