The House of Commons voted 253-37 today in favour of a 13 per cent harmonized sales tax for Ontario

WOW – I cannot believe this has gone through so easily and with so little uproar from society who is already dealing with a crippling recession.  They say it makes it easier for businesses, but I just can’t see it.  Besides the fact that many things we buy will cost more money, we’ll need to pay people to change adjust our bookkeeping system, documents, POS systems.  Easy?  I think not, at least from this business person’s perspective.
