McGuinty isn’t fooling anyone. The HST will cost you

Dear friend:

It’s less than three weeks until the HST is scheduled to take effect in Ontario, and McGuinty spinmasters are sparing no expense to mount an all-out, last-ditch effort to try and sell Ontarians on the merits of their universally-opposed tax.

Earlier this week, government officials even held a glitzy briefing for reporters where they trotted out a long list of calculations to try and prove that the tax isn’t as bad as most Ontarians think it is. They say that large corporations will start cutting prices when they receive their billion dollar tax breaks (funded by your tax hike). In other words, every family in Ontario will hand an average of $800 to banks, insurance companies, gas companies and they – out of the goodness of their hearts – will hand it back to you.

Unfortunately for the government, no one actually believes that business will cut prices after the HST takes effect.

Even more unfortunately for the government, no matter how they slice and spin the numbers, they can’t hide the fact that people will be paying more.

Andrea Horwath and Ontario’s New Democrats are making sure the facts are out there. You can read more about our efforts here.

But we need your help.

Do you know of even a single business in your community that plans to reduce prices once the HST is on the books? Do you know of any business that will be forced to charge more? We’d love to hear about it. Dalton McGuinty keeps telling us the HST will lead businesses to lower prices, but we’re yet to hear of a single business that plans to roll back prices after July 1.

Let us know and keep checking our website at for more news and info.

PS – The worst part about the McGuinty Liberals’ HST media blitz is that they’re using YOUR tax dollars to do it!

Will you help Andrea Horwath and Ontario’s NDP fight back against this unfair, unethical tax by making a quick online donation to Ontario’s New Democrats today?
