NDP leader’s efforts miss the point

Community Aug 14, 2009 Ancaster News

I see that NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is toting out the perceived evils of Ontario’s new single sales tax plan. Ms. Horwath continues to claim a single sales tax will hurt low income earners. She states that a single sales tax will increase costs of certain products.

I’m a student entering my last year of university. As such, I’m also a low-income earner. What’s important to me is not a two-cent increase in the price of my cup of coffee, it’s finding a job.

The single sales tax will work to ease the recession, put business on a more stable footing and create jobs. Under the single sales tax plan, myself and my colleagues have a real shot at creating the jobs for which we’ve been training.

Why does Ms. Horwath want to deny us that opportunity?
