This blog was created to show how the government of BC has lied, or reneged on political promises. The record of the Liberal Government in BC has been appalling since they were first elected.And in the legislature all they can say is "we can't comment it's before the courts".
Lower Mainland Gets New Tax
Before contracts have even been Let the government has rammed through a new tax to build the Evergreen line. I was wondering how this could be done so speedily when the HST removal would take up to two years, when I spotted the following comment in a article in the Province.

Funny how a new tax can get legislated in a matter of weeks, but to get rid of a tax it takes a provincial vote and then almost two years.
Not only did I think of the speed of the legislation, but wasn't there a previous tax that was to cover the line? Time doesn't permit me to research this in the next couple of days so maybe some of my readers could help.
