Dear Mrs. Donna Barnett:

Let’s see … September 2009 there were protests against the implementing of the HST. In the spring of 2010 Mrs. Barnett received 4,000 signatures in the legislature in protest to the HST. And then Mrs. Barnett voted in favour of Bill 9 to stop debate on the HST. Then in the summer of 2010 we collected 9,000 signatures to force a referendum on the HST. In the fall of 2010 the province voted to get rid of the HST. Mrs. Barnett, I believe that the reason you would not take a stand against the HST when everyone else wanted it gone is because you did not want to go against your own political party’s position. You chose them over your own constituency. A broken promise I might add.

The BC Liberal party is now in the process of imploding. You have nothing left to lose! Now would you please take a public stand against the HST and tell your fellow Liberal colleagues that it is time to get rid of the hated tax and save yourself some face in the process. And tell them to quit stalling on its removal. We want it gone now!
