I don’t like to talk about politics, but sometimes a topic is too infuriating to pass by without saying anything. If you still don’t know from the title of this article what I’m talking about, just read the “Why should you be upset?” column on the Say No To HST in BC Website to find out what has me and many other people clenching our fists in anger.
On a positive note, this unfortunate move by Gordon Campbell and his Liberals has brought the masses together in unprecedented ways. As of this writing, over 108,000 people have signed up on the NO BC HST Facebook Group in less than a month! Power to the people… :)
Former BC premier Bill Vander Zalm had this to say about the proposed HST’s negative impact. As mentioned in that commentary, a non-partisan rally is planned on Saturday, September 19, at noon, at the Vancouver Art Gallery Canada Place. Come and voice your discontent peacefully along with the thousands of other people that are expected to take part in this event that is sure to shake the Liberal government’s foundation.
