Anti HST Town Hall Meeting

Tax opponents Bill Vander Zalm, the former Social Credit Premier, and Chris Delaney from Fight HST will speak at at town hall meeting at the Schubert Centre this Sunday at noon. Organizer Rod Baziw says people will be able to ask questions. "They're going to inform the public exactly what the HST is applied to, not what the government says." Baziw says most polls he's seen still show a majority against the tax. He doesn't trust the government to follow through on a promise to reduce the tax to 10 percent by July 2014. "If they get reelected, they're probably just going to jack it way up." Baziw plans to continue efforts to recall Vernon MLA Eric Foster, perhaps later this year.
