Unfair sense of entitlement

Letters

Years of government favour have resulted in an unbelievable sense of entitlement in B.C.’s corporate elite.

Only in B.C. could business pay for an advertising campaign to convince the public that if they pay more taxes and business less, it would benefit us all.

Apparently we all should get collective amnesia about the last nine years of corporate tax cuts and forget the fact that this entitlement has been paid for by seniors, the sick, the vulnerable and the young.

Business exists solely for profit and has no sense of shame that their profits came out of the pockets of the needy.

How stupid do the HST advocates think we are?

The old adage rings true: It doesn’t matter to business, if cannibalism were legal, we would all be in cans.
