Donna Barnett needs to get the facts

After reading our MLA’s letter to the editor in this newspaper on July 19, I didn’t know whether to choke, cry, or laugh out loud, so I decided to do all three.

After reading our MLA’s letter to the editor in this newspaper on July 19, I didn’t know whether to choke, cry, or laugh out loud, so I decided to do all three.

Barnett states that the BCFL is attacking her with dishonest information. What a “crock.” The truth hurts.

Barnett, I ask you, what about the attack you and your party laid upon the honest taxpayers of this province, when you lied and were all elected under false pretences in the last election?

The last election should be declared null and void. You would not have won here if your campaign would have included honesty on the HST.

You will not win the next election. People are fed up with you insulting their intelligence. You and your government are trying to blame and scare the people of this province for your mistakes.

You have spent $6 million in taxpayer dollars running little stick-man ads on TV to tell voters how good the HST is for them. All these ads do is inflame the anti side more and more.

You say your caring government will reduce the HST to 10 per cent in 2014. How can you be sure? There is an election before that and I’m sure you will all be thrown out before 2014.

You say the HST is good for us. How? I have kept an accurate tab for the first year of the HST for a normal household with just everyday purchases and so far this tax is up to $1,032 in additional costs that were not there prior to this horrid tax. This would quickly escalate if major breakdowns were to occur such as major appliances etc.

This tax is no good for anyone except to line bank accounts of “big” business, the Liberals’ best friends. Get the money back from them

Lastly, I hope our Cariboo Chilcotin MLA doesn’t think all these anti-HST articles are all from avid NDP and big labour people.  Donna, most are from your previous supporters.

The voters here sent you a clear message via a kill-the-HST petition where 80 per cent said they wanted this tax thrown out. Why  don’t you listen?
