Repeat the HST

OK, so, let me start this off by saying I've been reasonably persuaded that the HST is a good thing for BC in the long run. And I think Bill Vander Zalm is an ass, and Bill Tieleman I'm pretty mixed on.

But that said, the way the HST was implemented is absolutely inimical to democracy and should be defeated for that reason alone.

It is unacceptable for a party to deceive the province into "what's best". Make your case to the people and then govern with an actual mandate. Don't say you're not going to bring in an HST and then do it.
