Good outcome! I don't know if the HST is an economically superior taxation system or not. Most economists think so - but given the extremely shaky state of the global ecomomy, how far can they be trusted?
Either way the bottom line for me was always the arrogantly dishonest way the Campbell government foisted the HST on us with no debate whatever. We just can't have our elected representatives telling us bald-faced lies and getting away with it. Gordon Campbell is gone and good riddance to him. But his replacement and many other Liberal pols are not much better. A real downside now is that the NDP will likely be elected. We need better choices.
