Government HST ads misleading, biased

Re: HST referendum a waiting game, Our View, Aug. 3, 2011.

“To the government’s credit, it has done a good job spelling out the two scenario’s for taxpayers.”

Is it April 1 or something? You can’t be serious.

This government has done nothing but mislead citizens. Their advertising campaign (stick men) at taxpayers’ expense has been nothing short of appalling as they try to again mislead voters.

Government is clearly just lackeys for big business, nothing new with Premier Christy Clark.

It is clear that families first for her is the same big business family Campbell loved.

As the Gazette is owned by big business it is no shock your biased editorial sides with government.

At least the Fight HST campaign is honest in that they are up front in saying the HST is a bad tax.
