Harmonized tax – an erosion of First Nation rights – Midnorth Monitor

Harmonized tax – an erosion of First Nation rights

Posted By Isadore Day

This letter is to advise the public the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) was announced in the Ontario Budget in March, 2009. The provincial government of Ontario will work with the federal government t harmonize the 8% Ontario Provincial Sales Tax with the 5% Goods and Services Tax. The plan is to have the HST, 13% implemented by July 2010. The PST portion will be referred to as the Ontario Value Added Tax (OVAT) and will be administered by the Canada Revenue Agency and harmonized to the current GST system. The consensus among leadership is that this is an erosion of the right to tax exemption either way the government wants to spin it.

Hayden King

Joseph Quesnel recently argued on these pages (“Don’t give into UN group think,” Oct. 16) that the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is nothing more than a “superficially impressive sounding document,” a UN “shenanigan.” The article seems to respond to increasing indications that two of the three remaining countries still refusing to accept the declaration, New Zealand and the United States, are re-considering. That will leave Canada — the lone independent thinker in the international community, according to Quesnel.
