Dear Editor:

It is time to send in your HST referendum ballots and have your say on one of the biggest and most significant tax policy changes in B.C. history.

Changes that were implemented by the Gordon Campbell/Christy Clark/ Bill Bennett B.C. Liberal government without public input and under a cloud of deception and mistruths.

Premier Clark and her Families First slogan would like you to believe that they have listened and fixed the HST but they havent. Only you can fix the HST by voting yes to scrapping this harmful tax.

If we want to change tax policy in this province and shift tax responsibility away from big business and place it onto the shoulders of people and small business, then lets have an honest discussion, not stick figure commercials and more shady promises.

Unfortunately, Premier Clarks and Bill Bennetts Families First slogan actually does mean we are first, but in this case, it is the first to be taxed!

Vote Yes to scrap the HST!
