Arise against robber barons, affronted backbone

Dear editor,

From the phrenologists that read the bumps on Premier Clark’s and Finance Minister Falcon’s heads we have learned that the best speculation over the Liberal plans for the HST is to fix it.

Yet according to the proponents of HST it is not broken. For the sake of election popularity Clark seems to imply some reduction. Falcon is seen to reinforce this with an estimate of a one-per-cent cut as a loss of near a billion in revenues.

That seems to be his pressing caucus concern. You may think that billion is promised to some corporate cartel with Liberals still on hook for it.

Well, this billion is not yet the globalists’ money. It is still part of the workers’ paycheques that is already being removed from the B.C. market.

The HST has been a corporate cash grab from the first Harper-Campbell plotting over it. That is why the corporations are the big HST backers; they see it as theirs.

Most of that billion has the names of many small B.C. business firms on it. That billion that Clark and Falcon are debating is a significant part of B.C.’s small businesses’ survival margin.

This affronted backbone of our B.C. economy must demand of these robber barons, by what right do the large corporations deserve this gift.

Those giants have already been over paid and then shut down shifts and removed plants and have shrunk our market cash flow significantly. This is where we in B.C. need our own Sheila Fraser to show what we got for our money.

One could think that it is time for small business B.C. to make the Liberals accountable and explain to whom the profit flows and when can we expect the tinkle down to take place.

Dee Shoolingin,
