[quote=“MeepMeepZoom”]Rally the troops. Sound the battle cry. Then passively pay the tax. Just kidding. Obviously, you are correct in that the media outlets are apparently ignoring the public’s meandering about it.
All people should be bugging news stations, local news papers, MLA’s, MP’s and whoever they can to express that this type of back-door politics practice will garner an extreme public backlash. And rightly so- the last year has been the hardest I’ve ever had - much in tune with what people all over the province are saying: “It’s just too much now.” Compounding effects from bank fees, multiple types of taxes, levi’s, increased cost on items from compounded HST throughout the supply chain etc. etc. etc.
I think every member of the public should ensure that there is a %0 sale rate for used vehicles. %100 vehicle gifting statistics at the end of 2013 would send a clear “fuck you” to our government.[/quote]
The news media doesnt care if it isnt obvious to you by now that they are bought and paid for then you havent been paying attention. The Liberals until about 2 months ago had not one negative story about them regardless of the many blunders of Christy Clark yet they have the time to report every photo op in great detail including her callous insensitive visit to burns lake immediately after the mill exploded with empty promises. Apparently though when Adrian Dix loses a skytrain pass its a big 2 week long running story.
edited to add: a 100% gift rate for used vehicles would do nothing more than cause the liberals to stand up on their pedestal and proclaim how badly the government has been ripped off and how they must crack down because the public is losing some bajillion number of dollars per year on gifted cars. The BC liberals are as bad as the RIAA
