Abbott, Foster on 'Hit List' -- 107.5 KISS FM

Fight H-S-T leader Bill Vander Zalm is warning Liberal M-L-A's they could pay with their jobs if B-C goes ahead with the harmonized sales tax.

Bill Vander ZalmVander Zalm (pictured) says 24 ridings have been added to a new ''hit list'' of politicians that could be subject to a recall campaign.

He says they represent ridings where more than 25 per cent of voters have signed the anti HST petition.

They include Eric Foster in Vernon Monashee, George Abbott in Shuswap, and the three Kelowna area MLA's.

Foster tells KISS FM, opposition to the tax should subside as people learn more about it.

"The effects of it are going to be that minimal that I don't think it's going to create the groundswell that Mr. (Chris) Delaney and Mr. Vander Zalm think it's will."

Vander Zalm says recall campaigns could begin in November and would target one or two members at a time -- to avoid bringing down the government while forcing it to reconsider the decision to blend the federal and provincial sales taxes.
