HST reaction so positive B.C. cancels mail campaign, minister says
The B.C. government has cancelled a proposed mail campaign to support its Harmonized Sales Tax because it says public reaction to the new tax has been better than expected.
Finance Minister Colin Hansen said he pulled the plug on the HST mailer Wednesday during a Liberal caucus meeting in Vancouver.
“I think the roll out of the HST has been smoother than we had anticipated,” said Hansen.
