Say No TO HST in BC petition
We, the undersigned, are strongly opposed to the proposed implementation of HST in British Columbia at a time when taxes should be cut to spur economic growth. The Liberal party did not tell the truth, they did not consult and they do not have a mandate to bring in the HST. It was very clearly stated that HST was not being considered before the election. With the latest information, it is clear that a detailed report from the BC Progress Board was presented to Gordon Campbell 5 months prior to the election. Not only is this tax unfair and being proposed during possibly the worst economic time in decades, the blatant disregard for the average British Columbian with the announcement of HST without any consultation or warning is unacceptable. We, the undersigned, demand that the Liberal Government does not impose HST in July 2010, and in the future will consult with British Columbian citizens, business and industry before deciding to implement a tax rate increase.
