Hope everyone had a nice holiday, happy 2009.
I had an opening thought for the year – do you wonder if the Conservatives are slapping themselves for cutting the GST by 2% given their imminent deficit in a few weeks? I wonder how much this would’ve helped our economic situation. I personally don’t feel the difference between a 13% and a 15% GST, but I’m quite certain the boys in their beloved white shirts, the showered and blue blazered will definitely miss this revenue. I realize this could be touted as economic stimulus for citizens, but is it actually? If this means less services for those in need or less funding for things like the arts, then I think it was a decision that lacked any foresight, and/or misguided for my tax dollar and vote.
