Say yes

I sense that a yes vote to extinguish the harmonized sales tax may produce much more positive, progressive results and that a no vote to keep this tax may produce much more harmful, negative results to our own evolving economic existence.

I sense that a yes vote to extinguish the harmonized sales tax may produce much more positive, progressive results and that a no vote to keep this tax may produce much more harmful, negative results to our own evolving economic existence.

A yes vote may prevent the HST from making the rich minority richer by making the poor majority poorer and B.C. may do better if we make a real effort to balance our own federal and provincial taxes.

I sense that a yes vote may go a long way towards returning our forceful federal/provincial governments to the bottom-to-top democratic grassroots government that is within our own Canadian constitution and they may think twice before risking trying to ram anything else down our own throats again.
