BBOT survey says keep HST

A survey of Burnaby Board of Trade members found most respondents were in favour of keeping the Harmonized Sales Tax.


Of those who responded, 63.4 per cent voted to keep the HST while 34.1 per cent voted to get ride of the controversial tax. Another 2.4 per cent were unsure. Ballots for the provincewide mail-in referendum on the issue must be received by Elections BC before 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 5. Info: http://tinyurl.com/3qbqehw/.
