Taxing Debate: How your HST vote could impact families

With the referendum over the future of the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) in full swing in British Columbia, Megaphone takes a look at how the controversial tax affects low- and middle-income earners.


While economists may fall on different sides of the debate, the referendum has opened up an opportunity for the province to look at the issue of taxation and ask how we can create a more equitable tax system for all.


Also in this issue of Megaphone: We celebrate Megaphone vendor Charlize Gordon's ceremonial first pitch at the Vancouver Canadians baseball game; look at the latest lawsuit against Downtown Eastside slumlords; David Suzuki takes a plunge into the world's oceans; examine how microfinance is helping the developing world grow; and commemorate a new mural at the Vancouver Library's Central Branch that reflects the history of the Downtown Eastside.
