The idea of a mail in vote is interesting and I when I was talking with some supporters of this tax they are very excited about the way the vote is being conducted. As they said to me there is a silent group of about 35% of people out there that support the tax but these people would not get out and vote so the mail in ballot will allow them to vote. They also suggested that the anti-HST vote, would not be able to get out there people to vote, so they will win.
The other issue they talked about was that the system would come crashing down around us if we were forced to move back to the old system of taxation, and that this would hurt the all ready fragile recovery. I shook my head, and thought why are you using scare tactics to gain support. The system will not fall apart, the consumer will be better off in the short and long run, if the HST is defeated and business will adjust if the government will allow time for that to happen.
I also want people to remember that the Liberals in BC brought in the tax, but the Federal Conservatives with the support of the Federal Liberals, voted for the imposition of this tax on the people of BC, and when you vote in the Federal election you need to bear this fact in mind.
