You all know, everyone who's buying a new car has to pays a tire fee. In Ontario it's $14.20 or $3.55 per tire.

Here is all you need to know about this fee. Fun facts (all two of them):

1. Because it's Ontario everything that touches the money goes bad. So the province intends to shut down Ontario Tire Stewardship by 2018. Because of "suspicious money transfers, allegations of fraud and wasteful executive spending."

2. Did you know that $3.55 fee per tire is the number π (3.1415926535897932384626433) with added 13% HST.

So when I was at the honda dealership getting a quote, they listed it as 44.99 + another 199.99 in "AIR reclaim fee". When I asked what that was they could not tell me. I promptly gave them a smirk and took off.
