Fighting the HST

Ignatieff said Tuesday he supports the harmonized sales tax because of its economic benefits, but he said B.C. residents also have a right to rally against it. But federal New Democrat MP Libby Davies said Ignatieff didn't vote against the HST bill that the Conservative government rammed through last year. She said the NDP repeatedly challenged the procedural tactics that were being used. "It's very disingenuous for Ignatieff to come to B.C. and portray himself as a friend of the people of B.C. because of the way the HST was handled when he didn't do anything," Davies said.
