LETTER TO THE EDITOR – Kevin Parkinson – H1N1 Flu Vaccine – Cornwall Ontario

Why Reducing the GST was wrong and why the HST is a more fair tax.

Why Reducing the GST was wrong and why the HST is a more fair tax.

Nobody wants to pay tax.  I sure as heck don’t.   Taxes though, like death, are something you can’t avoid.   The challenge for society is how to tax fairly.
