Byng Giraud will be managing the No side's campaign during the upcoming referendum on whether to scrap the harmonized sales tax, Public Eye has learned. Mr. Giraud is presently Imperial Metals Corp.'s corporate affairs vice-president. But he's best known inside the beltway for having been George Abbott's operations manager during the Shuswap MLA's recent bid to win the provincial Liberal leadership. He was also formerly one of British Columbia's two federal Conservative national councillors.
