December 4th, 2009 - 4:00am
40th Parliament, 2nd SessionHansard
Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP):
Madam Speaker, there are perhaps no words more hated in British Columbia right now than the harmonized sales tax.
The petitioners from Conservative ridings in Surrey, Delta and Richmond say that this is a profoundly unfair tax shift. The harmonized sales tax comes at a time when Canadians and particularly British Columbians are struggling to pay their bills.
They petitioners from Conservative ridings are saying, no, to the HST. They call upon the Government of Canada to rescind the HST.
I deposit this petition in their name.
