TAX on TAX (GST being charged on Carbon Tax)

Councillor Spiers is petitioning the Government of Canada to eliminate the GST on the Carbon Tax charged by the Province of BC (and presumably by other provinces in the future). This GST defeats the claim that the carbon tax would be revenue neutral as this money leaves the province and becomes part of the Federal tax revenue.

If you support this initiative and wish to sign the petition you may do so by accessing the signing link. For further information please visit the Vernonblog.

About Me

My photo
I have been a resident of Coldstream since 1976. I have had 15 years of experience on Council, 3 years as Mayor. As a current Councillor I am working to achieve fair water and sewer rates and to ensure that taxpayers get fair treatment. The current direction regarding water supply is unsustainable and I am doing all I can to get the most cost effective water supply possible.
