NO HST HIKE! | The Coast Halifax

NO HST HIKE!

The NS government is considering an two percent hike in the HST. They are going to backfill the two percent reduction in the GST that was given to us so graciously by the federal government over the last few years. ENOUGH. People are complaining that they don't want tax hikes or services reduced. THERE ARE ONLY TWO WAYS TO DEAL WITH THE DEFICIT—EARN MORE OR SPEND LESS!!! Taxing us to the poor house is not an option for most Nova Scotians—that leaves the latter. Tighten the treasury purse strings for crying out loud!!! —Allan Bardsley, CA
