Okay this is too much. Our Government (BC) is going to opt for an Harmonized tax - in other words they are going to combine our two taxes the PST and GST to one tax. Now things we did not have to pay both taxes on will be heavily taxed - eating out for example, hair cuts, books will all be effected.
