HST signs misleading

The Pat Bay highway southbound between Haliburton and Royal Oak Avenue has sprung some signs concerning the HST referendum which smacks of BC Liberal obfuscation.

The Pat Bay highway southbound between Haliburton and Royal Oak Avenue has sprung some signs concerning the HST referendum which smacks of BC Liberal obfuscation.

There are a series of them which say: Keep our 1.6 billion: Keep our nurses, Keep our doctors, Keep our teachers, Keep our police, Keep our judges, and Considering the HST benefits.

Well the inference here is that without the HST there will be no nurses, doctors, teachers, judges or police. (There was a sign about larger class sizes now gone — so class sizes would be huge.)

Quite apart from the misleading suggestions, I would challenge the author and installer of these signs to tell us all exactly how many new nurses, doctors, teachers, police and judges have been granted to us since the HST came into being.

I am sure we would all like to know and more particularly where are they now?
