...By that I mean the HST that the provincial Liberal government has suddenly decided to saddle my fair province with. I don’t normally rant about politics but this is oh so very wrong. If you agree, please write to your MLA and tell them so. Or go here and sign a petition that the NDP has set up. At least it’s one way of saying ‘NO’ to this tax.
It’s time to remind the government that they are there by our good graces, not because it is their right.
(At this point, dear beentsy mentions putting away her soapbox. Here's hoping she's just putting it down to grab a pitchfork. Seriously, people, this just sucks. It blows big, hairy, smelly, Gordo-goats. Please take a minute to write your MLA! And for the love of wool, take a minute to find out, from a source other than the BC government, just how much this is going to cost you. Then, do something!)
