The manner in which this HST vote is being conducted is ridiculous.
Many citizens that reside here and have a right to vote have not yet received their ballots!
In our home, mine arrived shortly after the mail strike ended but my wife’s never did. After considerable time was spent on hold waiting for what must have been a single operator, it was stated that hers had been sent to the address we had three years ago!
Others in the area have not gotten theirs despite having lived at the same address for many years.
What would motivate the government to work from very old voters lists and how are we to trust them to return an honest count?
The manner in which the vote is worded has been carefully made to cause confusion. The whole process reminds one more of a Third World banana republic than a democracy.
The pittance of $175 given to a very few folks will be more than eaten up by their paying the HST in the remainder of this year and will be a millstone on the backs of citizens forever more.
The tax upon tax upon tax mentality of the government must be halted. Ask yourself if the economy in this province has improved since the HST was slipped into law a year ago?
The Liberals believe the citizens are very gullible fools.
Don’t fall for it. Please vote Yes now.
By the way, about the fact that we’re the only place with a carbon tax on gasoline: where has all that money gone?
