HST deception

Provincial government HST referendum ads are presenting the 10 versus 12 per cent as though this is a vote on rates, which can go up as well as down and are not on the ballot. This distracts from the choice — between a federal tax and one that is provincially controlled — and is a bit like asking a child whether he would prefer to take his book or his teddy bear to bed.
