Taxpayers footing unfair bill for proposed HST

To the Editor,

Many are concerned about having to payback the 1.6 billion dollars should we vote to extinguish the HST.

To the Editor,

Many are concerned about having to payback the 1.6 billion dollars should we vote to extinguish the HST.

So far the Liberals have only taken the 0.6 billion part the of the bribe from the Harper government.   I ask why should we, the citizens of B.C. be required to pay back money given to us for instituting a tax that we did not want, did not ask for and had imposed upon us without proper discussion or debate?

We as Canadians, through the Harper government already own that money.  Should we as British Columbians have to pay it again?

The Liberals made a huge mistake with the HST and must bear the responsibility for their actions. It is not up to the citizens of British Columbia to pay for their mistakes.

Perhaps some of the Liberal supporters and corporate friends could chip in and help the Liberals honour their debt to our society. After all its only $600,000,000.
