Lantz not impressed with launch of HST

Mayor Bruce Lantz says the government should have done their homework before launching the Harmonized Sales Tax.

Appearing on Issues and Answers on Wednesday, Lantz says the province should have talked to various groups before making the decision.

He says the government should have mitigated concerns from groups around the province before making the announcement.

Lantz says some of the local sectors might be impacted in a negative way, but he says he hopes the government will offer some incentives to deal with those impacts.
