Re: Horwath Leads Anti-HST Campaign, July 31 The News.

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

I’m getting tired of Ms. Horwath’s rhetoric. 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 after I graduate.

The single sales tax will work to ease the recession, put business on a more stable footing and create jobs in Ontario. Like other students on the brink of graduating, I’m scared that I won’t find a job. Under the single sales tax plan, myself and my colleagues have a real shot at creating the jobs that we’ve been training for.

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