Finance Minister Kevin Falcon is reminding British Columbians to keep a close eye on the mail over the coming days and weeks for the HST Voters Guide, which is being mailed to every home in British Columbia.
The guide contains important information on the referendum, including statements provided directly by the official ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ groups, a summary of the report of the Independent Panel on the HST, a position statement from government, and important voting information from Elections BC.
British Columbians are encouraged to review the information thoroughly so that they can make the most informed decision possible.
• Details of the recently announced HST policy change are not contained in the Voters Guide. Voters are encouraged to visit www.HSTinBC.ca forfurther information on the government’s commitments to improve the HST if the referendum vote is a ‘No’ result, which would see the HST retained. Vote “Yes” is you wish to see the HST struck down. Follow the instructions carefully.
• Official referendum ballots will begin arriving to B.C. voters from Elections BC the week of June 13. Elections BC will also make any decisions with respect to implications of possible job action at Canada Post.
• The Voter’s Guide is available online at: www.HSTinBC.ca
