BC Lib's briefed on HST prior to election

The HST battle just got muddier in BC. The BC Liberals were briefed on the HST prior to the election in May 2009. The Gordon Campbell Liberal government has denied for the last 18 months that the HST was not even on their radar until after the election.

See more here on CBC.
and CTV

The BC Liberals decided to pre-empt a freedom of Information request today by releasing the info in a major damage control effort.

Link to HST documents, somewhat redacted! Are you surprised?

This article by the leading blogger on Hubpages (one of America's top 125 websites) describes a completely innovative and effective solution to the ongoing Quebec issue. He envisions the creation of a Canadian Capital District stretching from Ottawa to the West Island and to just east of Cornwall where bilingual rights are strictly protected, and which can also act as a tax-exempt Free Foreign Trade Zone to boost the area's economic development: http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Canadian-Capital-District-The-Solution-To-Finally-Achieving-English-French-Equality
