Mr. Speaker, for over a year, the people of B.C. have been telling the government in every way that they do not want this tax and yet the Conservatives still deny the HST is a problem and they have been misleading their constituents. Now they will not commit to call the byelection in Prince George--Peace River as soon as possible.
The people of Prince George have no MP but there is no sign that the government will move to call that byelection. Is the government so scared of the HST backlash that it will let this seat remain empty?
