Three sure things for B.C. taxpayers

Reader says savings from HST defeat will be offset if the NDP takes government



Three sure things for B.C. taxpayers are that Gordon Campbell is gone, the HST will be gone, and it is only a matter of time for Adrian Dix to raise payments on all government services and a nice increase to your income taxes if he is given the premier’s job.

Remember that the so-called savings in the HST will be offset with increases from an NDP government.

To all you voters that think you did a good job in rejecting the HST, think again. If the NDP forms the next government, you would have been better off, dollar-wise, in keeping the HST.

Just another point for the rest of Canada to take a laugh at B.C. taxpayers. Unbelievable but so true.
