The fact that we are being inundated with pro-HST ads and letters has prompted me to respond with three easy questions to the proponents of HST.
When you are at a retail business, and notice that the prices have not gone down, ask the owner if they had a PST number, which exempted them from paying PST on goods for resale.
When you hear the radio ads stating that the HST rate is going to fall from 12 to 10 per cent, ask yourself could not the provincial government have done the same with PST?
And last, again when you hear those ads, why do they never mention that it will take a couple of years, are they conveniently ignoring that fact in order to influence your vote?
Remember to vote.
