Courtenay Meeting is TONIGHT, 7:30pm @ Upper Legion Hall!
Fresh on the heels of successful meetings in White Rock and Maple Ridge where thousands of voters turned out to sign the petition to end the HST, Fight HST Leader Bill Vander Zalm is taking his Town Hall tour to Vancouver Island.
Vander Zalm will explain to Islanders why the tax will hurt British Columbia, and not help it as the Liberal government has been saying. He will make stops in Victoria on Thursday, April 15 at 7:30pm at the Ocean Pointe Resort, in Nanaimo at noon on Friday, April 16, at the Beben Park Rec Centre, and in Courtenay, also on Friday April 16 at 7:30 at the Upper Legion Hall.
“We are getting tremendous support now all across BC. What started as a movement to stop the HST has turned into an open revolt against an out of touch and arrogant government that refuses to listen to its own people,” said Vander Zalm.
“We are coming to the southern, middle and northern parts of Vancouver Island to spread the message that democracy is not dead, and we have a plan to stop this hated sales tax in the Citizen Initiative – a plan that all British Columbians can participate in,” Vander Zalm concluded.
