HST Costs Average BC Household $521

A Statistics Canada prepared model shows the average BC household will pay an additional $521 per year as a result of the HST. The study was done by the Victoria Times Colonist and the first in a series of articles about the HST can be viewed using this Nanaimo Info LINK.

Government spin meisters including local MLA Ron Cantelon will be busy this summer trying to convince BC  residents the tax won't really affect them, and will be good for business in the long run. All of which of course is double talk at it's best. If the government were to ever actually be honest they would admit they don't really know what they are doing and this is just another desperate tax grab by a bunch that can't figure out how to stop spending money they don't have.

It will be interesting to see how the government tries to convince us that this model prepared by the Times Colonist isn't really accurate either.
