FLORENCE SKINNER ON GORDON CAMPBELL’S HATED SALES TAX: ‘The chickens are coming home to roost on the harmonized sales tax’

I read Premier Gordon Campbell‘s justification for imposing the HST with the same sense of disbelief that I have come to feel for everything he says (June 30).

I find it telling that he had to go outside the province to find an economist who would make his case.

I find it hard to believe that the various business groups are acting without political direction in launching their legal action challenging the HST petition.

Perhaps that’s a symptom of the suspicion with which all matters surrounding this government are regarded.

There is no trust left.

In any case, we have reached a point where the legalities hardly matter.

If the signatories to the petition are told, no matter by whom, that their opinions are irrelevant and can be discarded, it is Campbell’s government that will face their fury.

We have seen many examples in this government of arrogance and disregard for the voter.

The chickens are coming home to roost on the harmonized sales tax.

    BC is known as the most corrupt province in Canada. I guess when a BC premier, lies, deceives and cheats to win, I guess BC deserves that honor. In all my many years, I have never seen, any other premier, make the godawful mess, that Campbell has done. He has close ties with China, and has visited many times. I believe Campbell, has taken too many pages out of China’s book. I see Campbell as a communist dictator, his government is too close in nature to China’s. He has devalued our standards of living, education, health care, children in poverty in BC, all of that, is similar to China’s governing. I believe, Canadian Intelligence, is keeping an eye on BC, for very good reason.

    I share your concerns, Angrygranny, particularly the many trips the Campbellites take to the most oppressed country on earth.

    The Canadian spies seem to be performing a good public service in warning us about the vulnerabilities of these foolish Canadian politicians when it comes to the tricks of the Communist Party of China.
