Businesses come out in support of the HST


BC groups representing 30,000 businesses are rallying behind the Liberal government’s proposed harmonized sales tax.

The business groups employ at least one million workers and among others represent the forest, movie and petroleum industries.  They say the HST will ultimately lead to higher wages and lower prices and, as you would expect the Premier and the Opposition leader have different takes on this issue and those behind it.[asset|aid=1775|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=cd9c3dfe01a7ec27adc4b7638c651941-Campbell-HST_1_Pub.mp3] [asset|aid=1776|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=cd9c3dfe01a7ec27adc4b7638c651941-James-HST_1_Pub.mp3]

The latest from the premier is the legislation to enact the HST, set to come into effect next July, may not be introduced in the legislature, until next spring.
