Ontario HST

“Dalton McGuinty’s new HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) will hurt thousands of Ontarians already paying more than their fair share of taxes.”

Andrea Horwath, the new leader of the Ontario NDP, is standing up for the people of Ontario by leading the fight against the HST. Dalton McGuinty, leader of the Liberal Party, signed for this new raise to start in July 2010. Holding provincial funding hostage, Jim Flaherty says other provinces can get their share of federal funding if they too introduce HST.

What does HST mean to the average person? It means each cup of coffee is going to go up 8%. Not a coffee drinker? You’re on the internet now; you can expect your access fees to go up 8% too. From gasoline to hair cuts, landscaping to funeral costs; if this tax goes through, the citizens of Ontario will be paying more every day.
