I hate arguing over a tax cut, or a tax increase.
What really matters to me is what we spend tax money on.
Many safer cycling paths, or one big highway?
Good preventive health care for all, or “tax cuts” to the businesses that profit by selling us overprocessed and worthless foods, and cigarettes, and booze, etc?
Real action on climate change, or misguided military expeditions across the globe?
I also really hate the arrogance of a government that “bends the truth” (read: lies) when introducing the HST, and then uses my tax money to run ridiculous stick figure ads with more lies about said tax.
Vote YES to extinguish the HST.
