But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

why would the government do that?

wasn't the whole point of the HST was to increase government spendings on artificial lakes?

they probably did this so they can ease the ass kicking they are receiving from us!

question is, is this going to be for every tax credit for a 1 time deal?

I hope we get some free money. Correct me if I'm wrong but before the new tax kicked in on gas like a couple few years ago didn't we also get a small check in the mail for that too?

Only Ontario gets a HST rebate cheque, BC won't get one.

Supposedly low income family will get some money.. but I suspect it is a minority of users on RevScene.

^ godwin is correct. Only ontario residents will receive a check. BC Gov't will use the transfer bribr from federal gov't on healthcare, paramedics and other similar stuff.

i think the low income families are getting around a $230 rebate??

but nothing for the middle income.

Quote:
Hansen also noted low income families that make less than $25,000 per year will get rebates of $230 per family member per year. He also noted an $80 savings for every citizen thanks to an increase in the province's basic personal tax exemption.


Amanda Sung, a 25-year-old employee of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. questioned Hansen on the impact of the HST on the middle class. She said as a single person making $35,000 per year she would not be privy to any rebates and many of the things she buys will be more expensive now.


"I don't think he addressed too much on the impact on young working class [people]. I think he avoided those questions. When asked what the impact would be on the middle class his example was with someone making $80,000. I [think] that's not the middle class," Sung said after the forum concluded.

The poor get breaks for obvious reasons.

The rich can afford accountants that find them the breaks, and investments which are tax-advantaged to encourage them to keep their money in Canada.

The middle class is too busy spending their money on granite counter tops, stainless appliances, iPads, BMWs, and overpriced Starbucks coffee. If they could only learn to save, they could afford the same tax-advantaged investments (albeit in smaller amounts) and be on the road to financial independence.

Once you go granite, you don't go back. Stainless steel appliances are over-rated though as they're a pain to keep clean.

I prefer coffee from 49th Parallel roasters, thank you very much.

I guarantee you that people will go away from granite. It's a matter of time.

Just remember (well, maybe you don't):
- avocado green appliances
- shag carpets
- 5-10 yr old "contemporary" furniture

Fashion sucks.
