BC Politics

Okay, The HST Is Gone, Now What?  

Sterk asks if PST exemptions will be put back

Submitted by Rebecca Helps, Office of the Green Party of BC


ow that the HST has been defeated, are we back to the same old PST with exemptions which are more often than not based on effective lobbying rather than sound policy? Or will the PST exemptions even be reinstated?


The fact is BC has a revenue deficit. The question now is what are the Liberal and NDP going to propose to raise necessary revenue? The BC Greens challenge the Government and Opposition to explain how BC can continue to provide essential social services without a clear and fair tax system.
