Feds reward BC gov’t for underhanded tactic

It seems that most business people are for the HST—guess maybe it’s because they get the tax back, so we are told.

To the editor:

It seems that most business people are for the HST—guess maybe it’s because they get the tax back, so we are told.

But is the tax good for the rank and file—what do they receive for compensation? We understand the bookkeeping is much easier but this has little affect on the average family.

We are told the HST will cost the average family of four between $400 and $600 more per year. How can this situation create jobs when there is less money to spend?

We all know from experience business is not good at passing any savings on, when fuel went down at the pumps, did anyone notice a drop in groceries? When the dollar rose in value, did the cost of produce drop? No chance.

Is there something behind this that may not be directly related, but is a direct result? Think about all the garbage presented to us from the provincial government.

Could it be that more than 700,000 signatures collected was also a protest vote, perhaps the voting public are tired of all this spending like drunken sailors. For the first time in B.C. history the taxpayer is fed up and done something.

Was the HST the locomotive to drive this?

Is it true that Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are concerned for a reason?

Is it true that the Feds are paying the $1.6 billion in increments to B.C.?

Is it true that more than $800 million has been collected to date. Why is the government fighting the taxpayer so hard if it’s good for us?

Is it true that the Feds are saying nothing because they know what’s good for them?

Should you be concerned with an idea in which the junior government failed miserably to tell the truth yet the senior government rewards this policy handsomely.

Whatever you, the taxpayers choose to do, please think carefully on this subject then cash your ballot.
