To the Editor,
I’ve never believed that Steele Gorosh was a credible contributor.
His letter (Keeping HST needed for tax reform, July 2) illustrates this well.
In the classic wrong-wing tactic of repeating lies, as to lend authenticity, he complains about the ‘misinformation’ sovereignty issue on the ‘hated sales tax’.
His arguments are completely refuted by Terry Hand in his letter (FightHST not linked to one political party, July 2).
In the seventh paragraph, Gorosh repeats that bold-faced lie ‘now with an HST rate of 10 per cent’. That, of course, would be true in 2014 and only if the single most deceitful government this province has ever seen is re-elected.
In an obvious attempt to shift the gauze, the writer states, “the HST referendum is not a referendum on Gordon Campbell.”
Wrong. The bottom line is he was sent to London so the yellow stripes don’t have to protect him here.
While no mention of Bill Vander Zalm was made, I sense the wrtier is annoyed at how sucessful ‘the Zalm’ has been at blowing up Liberal myths.
When we punt the HST, the Liberals wear it, and will be forced to raise taxes/fees/levies. This will make them second only to ‘Lyin’ Brian’ in terms of the most hated government ever.
How fitting for a government that inherited a surplus, then turned it into a deficit. Why doesn’t the famous left-wing biased media ever tell you that?
