Default Air Canada... Are they a bunch of Robbers and Thieves?

I recently cancelled my paid ticket... First, I was told I would get back the taxes I paid on the ticket apx. $122.

Whwn I got the confirmation email back from Air Canada, the amount was lowered to $45...

I called them up and was told that you don't get back the HST tax of $70.

I said "WHY"?

They said, we keep it and send it to the government...

I said you bunch of thieves... Give me back all the money I paid in taxes on the ticket....

The quick explanation of how the Tax Act works:
If you buy a non-refundable good/service the Gov gets the applicable tax. This applies to all retailers - not just airlines.
If any of the components that make up the total cost are refundable you get it - and the applicable tax for that amount back.
The Airport Improvement Fee, Canadian Air Trans Tax are all that are refundable when you buy a non-refundable ticket. My bigger concern is whether the discussion of holding it as a credit was held?

The Air Canada jokers will scre you every which way they can. 75.00 to sit in an emergency row, so i have to pay them to help in the case of emergency...what a joke. And if you need to change your return date for whatever reason, they start to salivate over how much they can gouge you for that. What a bunch of jokers.
