As of July 1st 2010, 8% tax will be added to a litre of gas through the Ontario government's new Harmonized Sales Tax. Few Ontarians know this and an significant increase of 8% in gas prices could precipitate a slowdown in Ontario's economic recovery.
It is nothing short of another tax grab at a time when cost of living is outpacing salaries and wages. The government should rescind the HST on gas. All Ontarians will appreciate its gesture of goodwill.
We, the undersigned, call on the Ontario Government and Premier Dalton McGuinty to rescind the HST on gas which takes effect on July 1st, 2010.
