Premier goes back on HST promise

To the Editor,

Re: Province promises to reduce HST rate, May 26.

Can you trust your new Premier?  A little food for thought. You decide.

This is a direct quote spoken by Christy Clark on March 21 2011 in an interview with Harjinder Thind on Radio CKYE:

“We aren’t going to be talking about trying to reduce it by a point or two before the referendum. I mean, I think people will see that as buying them with their own money.”

Think about that statement for a moment and then compare it to the  announcement made on May 25, 2011. You know, the one about reducing the HST by two points over three years.
