Yesterday, we exclusively reported many parents will be spending more money to send their children to summer camp thanks to the government's new harmonized sales tax. But concerned camp leaders might not have the opportunity to speak with Campbell administration about that increase until September. Speaking with Public Eye, Fellowship of Christian Camps northern representative Paul Bailey said, "At this point in the year, our focus is pretty strongly on running our summer programs. And we meet throughout the off-season. So to organize at this point and do the research and come up with a really good response - this is a very difficult season to be doing that in. But I would imagine, at our September meeting, we would take time to look into it and try to find some answers."
