Thunder Bay against HST
I've been working with a group of folks, organizing a citizens rally to find out more about the upcoming HST, harmonized sales tax, to come into effect July1, 2010. This means citizen/consumers will pay an extra 8% tax on previously un-taxed items and services. Only a few things are exempt: books, diapers, female personal hygiene supplies, children's clothes and children's car seats. The prov. govt says, maybe fast food under $4! oh, brother! What about home heating and gas for the car? If you live in Thunder Bay or the region, come out tomorrow to Waverley Park. THere will be speakers (short talks to give information, not speeches!), a drummer and pamphlets, etc. See you there!
Date: Saturday, November 14, 2009
Time: 1:00pm - 2:30pm
Location: Waverley Park, downtown Port Arthur.
