Deal with it

The provincial Conservatives are planning to discuss their position on the harmonized sales tax at the party's upcoming annual general meeting. That position has been a source of controversy for the Conservatives, who promised in 2008 to "investigate" the HST as part of a "tax relief plan" and yet later became one of its leading critics. In June, for example, party executive member Mischa Popoff resigned over what he said were efforts to "water-down" the Conservatives opposition to harmonization - a charged denied by president Wayne McGrath. As a result, the party intends to settle the issue once and for all this fall. In a newsletter distributed today to Conservative members, vice-president Jeff Bridge has stated the party will "deal with HST policy among other substantial issues" at their October 16 annual general meeting. The following is a complete copy of that document.
