Wilson Tables New Tecumseth HST Petition

(October 5, 2010) Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson has tabled hundreds of signatures in the Ontario Legislature from the Town of New Tecumseth's HST petition.  The petition was circulated by the Town after Council voted on June 14, 2010 to oppose Dalton McGuinty's Harmonized Sales Tax.

"The HST is proof that Dalton McGuinty wants more of our hard-earned money," said Wilson.  "The Premier believes in his heart of hearts that taxpayers have a near infinite capacity to pay for every idea he comes up with, and today families and seniors in New Tecumseth have told him no they don't."

New Tecumseth's petition was placed in all Town offices, community centres, libraries and on the municipal website.  It asked the McGuinty Government to rescind its unpopular decision to implement the HST in Ontario and cited the financial hardship it will cause for lower income families and individuals.

"Dalton McGuinty has changed," said Wilson.  "He simply doesn't understand the world we live in anymore.  While he continues to experiment with our tax dollars, Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Caucus know that Ontarians need a chance to catch-up."

Wilson said that if the Progressive Conservatives form the government in October 2011, they will take Ontario down a completely different path.  "We'll cut taxes to give families some relief - from the HST, eco-taxes, hydro increases, and auto insurance hikes that families can no longer afford," he said.  "And we'll live within our means and pay our bills.  Just like families in Beeton, Tottenham and Alliston do."
