Letter to the Editor: HST open house

Editor: There has been a lot of fanfare about the government’s HST public dialogues.  It is amazing what the government will do with $5 million (est.) of our taxpayers money. However myself, and I suspect you, were not invited to participate.   Did you know that Mr. VanderZalm and Chris Delaney have been hosting town hall meetings around our province since May 24?  With the sole exception of June 1st, the meetings have been continuous and will continue until June 15.  Locally, there is a town hall meeting scheduled on June 8, 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Camosun City Campus in Victoria, and one on June 9 at VIU from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.  A full list of these town hall meetings can be found at www.fighthst.com/fight-the-hst-debate-tour/  These meetings are open to the whole public, and all of you are invited to attend any of these meetings.
