Selected articles -- Morning Star, June 25, 2010.

Mr Foster appears to be confused. He is quoted as saying:
“I don’t get bullied. People elected me to represent them to the best of my ability and I still believe it is good public policy,” and “I won’t be bullied by (Fight HST leader) Bill Vander Zalm.”

He forgets about the over 12,000 people who signed the petition against the HST and whom he wants to represent to the best of his ability. Perhaps we misjudged his abilities. Should it not be the public who decides the best public policy? Shifting $1.9 billion in taxes to the individual taxpayers from business does not seem to be the best policy for the public. To me it appears that Mr Gordon Campbell and his party who are doing the bullying and as far as I know they did not vote for Mr Foster.
