I just want to say two more things of interest to people in BC.
First of all, the HST referendum. It is currently happening via mail-in voting, while the postal service has just gone on strike (what a convenient
coincidence). A few days after the riot, the federal government announced that if British Columbians vote for the HST, then they will be legally
bound to lower it to 10% (from 12% now, I think it is) in an effort to make it seem that voting against the HST would be voting for higher taxes,
which is exactly the propaganda that they are laying down.
Remember, the BC Liberals implimented the HST after they were voted in, after they campaigned AGAINST doing exactly that. They did it after the
federal government paid them at least 1.6 billion in "compensation" for implimenting the unpopular tax that has done little but please economists and
discourage customers from paying more at small businesses.
Secondly, don't forget that the government has been very secretive about radiation hitting BC from the Japan incident. The facts are that BC
monitoring stations have been detecting increased radiation levels, yet there's nothing really being done about it because the government is either
claiming these levels don't affect us, or ignoring it completely. There's already several fears of sharp rises of miscarriages in the North-Western
US, and the same stuff is hitting BC (specifically Vancouver Island and Vancouver).
More things to think about when trying to understand why British Columbians would have a problem with the government.
