HST Tax Effective Midnight Canada Day

The infamous HST tax comes into play midnight tonight; thoughts? I'm not a fan of the gas prices that will be increasing; approx. 0.94 cents to 1.04 at midnight tonight. Blah.

Where do you get a litre of gas for 0.94 cents? Or did you mean 0.94 dollars? ;-)

GST is already on gas which makes up for 5%. So all that is being added is 8% onto the pre-tax price of gas. Unless the gas companies capitalize on the confusion, there should be an increase of approximately 6 cents per litre.

Total BS.. I just transferred a bike to my name that I had sitting. 40 person line up at the ministry, half the tellers have a closed sign. I ask the fat lady at the counter if today is the last day to transfer before the HST and she says no.. I drill her some more and she changes her answer to yes. It is actually tomorrow but they're closed tomorrow.

Nope that would be 8 cents bringing it to $1.02. However it will also apply to the wholesaler so $1.12 may be closer to the real number.

Gas is still 5% GST (at least in BC). However in BC the carbon tax is going up 1.2 cents a litre from 3.6 to 4.8 cents a litre.

Is it ever going to end. Politician and I don't care what moronic leader ship the people think they vote in... actually I should rephrase "politicians" to Zombie puppets to the iMF and WORLD BANK... they need to be punished.. and I don't mean voice our opinion any more.

The crevasse is getting bigger and bigger between the people which the say they represent which is so laughable that is really starting to tic me off.

Just keep on voting, because we will get exactly what we deserve... Zombies...

Try as I might I just can't get that upset about HST I'm still getting used to the PST after moving here from Alberta... To be honest I'd always assumed it was on everything the gst is as there is only one thing I can thing of that it will affect me on in any real way (power bill), pretty much everything else I buy already has pst on it so there won't be any change for me... Other than the very remote possibility corporations will actually pass on some of the savings they are supposed to see from this in the form or lower prices rather than just take it as extra profits...
