Neighbourhood convenience retailers are happy to be there to deliver the products that Canadians want, when and how they want them. That is to say, convenient, fast, on-demand. That's not always easy at the best of times, but in the past it's been made significantly harder by Canada's tax system. You see, while convenience retailers are working hard to make your shopping experience simple and straightforward, the tax environment they face is anything but.
