The Liberal government’s TV ads promoting the HST say that the people spoke and the government listened and are dropping the HST to 10 per cent.
This is a blatant lie, as the people did speak via petitions and said they did not want the tax. Now the Liberals, as a bribe, are offering cheques to families with children under 18 years of age and to seniors in a certain income bracket. I have no children under 18 and do not fall into that income bracket so I will be getting nothing.
The $125 they are offering is supposed to be what it costs us extra with the HST. The HST on my basic everyday expenses have already amounted to more than $125 and perhaps double that. If the HST is good for the people, the economy and industry, why do only two provinces have it? I have yet to hear the other provinces talking about it.
