Mr. Speaker, the government continues to hide behind its doublespeak of provincial choice.
It bribed the provinces with billions of dollars to accept the HST now, in the middle of a recession, when it will hit families the hardest. Restaurants and small businesses know that when families are hit, they will be too.
If the Conservatives are certain that this is the best tax for B.C. and Ontario, why do they not let their members vote their conscience?
