There’s a faster way to remove the HST

There’s a faster way to remove the HST

Previously Christy Clark said that if the people didn’t support her on the HST she would call a provincial election after the referendum.  Well, she lost.

But is she going to keep her word? No! She is such a poor loser she has reneged on her promise and says she will hold the election in 2013.

Not only that, but, like a spoiled child she seeks to punish us by saying it will take 19 months to remove the HST.

It didn’t take anywhere near that long to implement it.And it doesn’t take anywhere near that long to disassemble it.

A mere 24 hours of announcements in the media is all it will take to tell; purchasers they no longer need to pay HST, and businesses they no longer need to collect it.

At the same time they tell all businesses that any HST collected, and not filed, to date, need to be submitted by Sept. 30. Also at the same time they notify all employees of the HST that all rebates must be sent out by Oct. 31.

And finally the same announcement informs the government employees that they will be laid off by Nov. 30 which gives them time to clean out their offices, wipe all their hard drives, send all their desks and office equipment to the store room, and apply for transfer to another dept.

All told, a lot less than 19 months.

Then, the people will see that Christy is an honourable person who believes in democracy and maybe, just maybe, she will win the next election, whenever it is held.
