B.C. HST Petition Passes Milestone


A petition led by a group opposed to a harmonized sales tax (HST) in B.C. has reached a benchmark, according to a report from CBC News.

The petition against the HST, to which the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association is also vehemently opposed, has now garnered 300,000 signatures, says Chris Delaney, one of the campaign’s organizers.

According to the report, B.C. Elections requires petitioners to reach a 10 per cent threshold of registered voters in each of the province’s 85 electoral districts. As such, organizers say there is much more work ahead, as they claim to have reached that mark in just 44 ridings.
