Last Rant on the HST

Food for thought:

During the run up to the HST construction firms experienced a significant spike in business as consumers took advantage of the seven percent savings prior to June 30 2010. The short-term spike was one more measure that helped buffer B.C. from the full brunt of the recession.

We convert back to HST in April 2013. Will consumers sit on their wallets for the next eighteen months to save seven percent? What does that mean for construction firms and their employees? How will the lag between HST and PST impact B.C.’s economy?

One last blundered HST decision by the Liberals. At least they’re consistent.
