HST and Carbon Tax Rain on Canada's Parade.
By Duane Burnett
Well the HST and Carbon Tax has rained down on a soggy Canada Day parade here on the Wet Coast!
Yesterday I wrote an article "Oh Canada yawn does anyone care?" about the lack of Canadian hoopla over the national day.
I supposed it to being due to the reserved Canuck politeness but seems its really the increased taxation on the nation's Birthday that also has everyone in a funk.
My morning coffee in Sechelt, BC has gone from $2.25 to $2.52. Happy Canada Day!
HST is here
The Harmonized Sales Tax takes effect in BC. The Provincial Sales Tax (PST) joins the Goods and Services Tax (GST) for a rate of 12%. Drivers will also be paying 4.8 cents a litre more in added carbon tax. Reported by CKNW radio.
Here are some of your best acronyms for the HST aka Harmonized Sales Tax.
David Barbarash: Horse Shit Tax
Marc Buzzell: Hayward's spill tax
Deborah Keith Geoffrion
David I think it depends on the amount of horse shit for the tax rate as individual serving sizes of hosre shit such as the regular consumer has to eat have of course double the tax whereas large quantities of horse shit for large corporations are exempt

'H2S T ' It is a colorless, very poisonous, flammable gas with the characteristic foul odor of rotten eggs. Sounds about right to me!
Heaven Sent Tactic. Freedom lies not in what the government does or does not do, but rather in the shadow of our reaction to it. The more we waste energy gathering a force of victim allies to fight the illusion, the more power we give it. Instead, let's direct our energy toward activating the warrior within who stands ready to set our abundant nature free.
Did the HST and Carbon Tax double whammy Canadian Spirit and Pride? I think so!
If you have anymore funny acronym's for the HST I will add them. Thanks for reading my blogspot and for all your comments and feedback.
