What services should we Cut Because of the HST?


Absolutely amazing folks, have a good look, the guy on the right is Ron Cantelon, MLA and cabinet minister representing Parksville/Qualicum.

You won`t believe what Ron Cantelon said in an interview for the Nanaimo Daily news!

Perhaps Bill Good, Michael Levy, Gordon scum Campbell, and you Vaughn the con Palmer should read what Ron Cantelon has said about the HST.

I have tried to explain how Gordon Campbell and his paid stooges have been running around like chickens with their head cut off, every other week a different spin is put on the HST, the latest salvo from the enemies of the people was......

"What services should we cut if we cancel the HST"

Sound familiar Vaughn Palmer? What do you say Michael Levy? What about you Bullshitter Bill Good, does that sound familiar?

The real question posed should be.....What services should we cut because of the HST!

Now why would I say that unless I had a smoking gun, besides Ron Cantelon being a rude fool, despite Cantelon being a flop when it came to fish farms, or protecting old growth forest along river banks, Ron Cantelon has had many roles in Gordon Campbell`s corrupt Government, oh indeed friends Ron Cantelon is the best politician MONEY CAN BUY!

But I digress, Ron Cantelon is a big time member of Gordon Campbell`s finance committee, what does the committee do? Well, they dicuss the Province`s fiscal state, they discuss taxes, new taxes, old taxes, revenue streams, budget recommendations, everything money related gets thoroughly scrutinized.

Gordon Campbell has directed the media, the PAB, everyone on the pay role has been ordered to start spinning about what services are to be cut if the HST is cancelled, they are attempting to lay a guilt trip on the public, you know, if we anti-HST types get our way we are hurting the public, we are denying health and education....Blah blah blah, like I said, they are running around like cluck cluck chickens with no heads.....

I knew that the HST, from a story Vaughn Palmer wrote that the first year of the HST the Province will realize about $370 million dollars less than the PST would have brought to Provincial coffers, of course Vaughn the con Palmer seems to have forgotten that story he wrote, his column today has the fingerprints and smell of Kirk Lapointe and Gordon Campbell, the paid stooge Vaughn Palmer is weak, Vaughn bent over and received his marching orders, time for a new trench coat Vaughn......you can read Vaughn Palmer himself state that the HST will lose $370 million in the first year here, that of course was what he said February 8/2010....Gordon Campbell and Kirk Lapointe have brought Vaughn the Con Palmer back in the fold!

I wonder if Vaughn Palmer has talked to Ron Cantelon(key member of the Government finance committee).....Because according to Ron Cantelon.........

Not only will the HST bring in less money to the Province this year........

According to Cantelon the HST will bring in less money to the Province for.....Drum roll please.....

For 3 years!....That`s right, 3 years folks!

So we lose $370 million in Provincial revenue in the first year because of the HST but we will lose hundreds of millions more in year 2 and in year 3....And that is not Grant G saying that ....

That is Ron Cantelon who states that, and I again remind you that Ron Cantelon is on the Government finance committee, a group that discusses the in-and-outs of the taxation policies of B.C......Specifically the HST.....

So lets do some math, we lose $370 million in year 1.....and we lose the same over the next 2 years.....Unless....God forbid Ron Cantelon is lying..Gasp, Shock..AWE...Not Ron Cantelon, an upstanding key player in Gordon Campbell`s finance committee, if anyone knows the HST numbers it must be Ron Cantelon......

OK friends, so now let`s look at the shrinking $1.6 billion dollar bribe, I wonder if Vaughn Palmer is ready to re-jigger the long term debt financing numbers in light of the shocking admission from Ron Cantelon,.......What $1.6 billion dollar bribe, the number is down to well below a billion dollars, and the fact that Gordon Campbell has chosen to take the bribe over 3 years not the 2 years that Vaughn fibs about there is millions in short term debt servicing against taking it in one lump sum and applying it to our massive B.C. Liberal deficit and skyrocketing debt!

Like I said friends...."Full blown panic mode".....In fact the B.C. Liberals only open their mouth lately to switch feet! The story from the Nanamio Daily news and the SHOCKING admission by Ron Cantelon is in the below link

You can read the story here

Pay special attention to the below paragraph.....Right from the horse`s own mouth(Ron Cantelon)

To quote Ron Cantelon.........

"In fact, because of the exemptions the Liberals are allowing, the money flowing into provincial coffers will actually decrease for the first two or three years the HST is in place."


I have a very important question for you Vaughn Palmer, "What services should we cut because of the HST"

The Straight Goods

This guy likes the HST:

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/commentary/derek-decloet/in-bcs-hst-debate-passion-trumps-common-sense/article1610126

My questions:

1.If the HST is so great, why does the Federal Govt have to bribe the provinces to adopt it?

2.Why is tax reform now being done by using bribery?

3.Are the provinces that now have HST doing better than those that don't?

4. If the HST is said to reduce taxes for business by $1.8 billion, does that mean that individuals will pay that much more tax, in order to avoid a reduction in tax revenue to the BC Govt?

Hugh said...

5. With the HST, does BC lose autonomy over taxation?

Grant G said...

Hugh...The answer is yes, we lose our taxing authority to Ottawa..

A small correction on your first contribution..

The number is $1.9 billion dollars..

Jack Mintz claims..

Over 10 years the HST will result in $11 billion in investment in B.C....

Unproven!..Yet the HST over 10 will result in $19 billion dollars being taken from consumer spending, that is proven..

That will cause job losses...

Hugh, you have read most or all of my posts on the HST...You know the answers

HST provinces were all in worse shape than B.C....

All the countries that have an HST or VAT tax are on the ropes, Canada is fiscally in better shape than almost every country in the world.

One must ask themself, why would we follow the lead of countries teetering on Bankruptcy?

The other question everyone fails to ask or explain...

Industry, chambers of commerce, boards of trade, economists have indeed asked for an HST, asked for a single tax....

A single tax is more efficient, but...

If you ask every industry, every business, every economist...

If you ask them..."Should we tax previously tax exempt items in B.C."

The silence becomes "Deafening"

Cheers

And the family guy on the left is none other than Gary Korpan the shamed Mayor in Nanaimo's last municipal election. Why all the shame you ask ? Google this wannabe liberal and you will find your answers. Like BLUE has stated many times in the past,
RECALL RON CANTELON MLA. SUPPORTER OF THE HST !!!

Just to correct you on one thing Grant. Ron the realtor is the MLA for Parksville/Qualicum the riding only serves a small amount of North Nanaimo. this being part of the new boundaries implemented in the last election. In Nanaimo the people have great representation by Leonard Krog.

And on top of it all the TAXPAYERS is about to finance a pro HST campaign that the TAXPAYERS don't want. How does that happen? Recall in the Fall.
