Dix nixes HST ever returning under an NDP goverment

The leader of the BC NDP says even down the line he wouldn’t consider reintroducing the HST.

With the scrapping of the HST today Adrian Dix took his chance to remind voters about the circumstances of its implementation.

“Certainly from the beginning… from the election campaign, onto the Premier Clark’s tax-payer funded campaign in favour of the HST and the referendum, onto today when there’s still challenges in transition – I think this was four lost years of tax policy in BC.”

While happy to talk about, what he describes as, a failed Liberal policy Dix wasn’t so keep to discuss his own plans dodging questions related to whether or not he’d run a budget deficit.
