Tax on Bikes? Come on!


Implementing the HST on bicycles proves that the Campbell government is not serious about climate change solutions. There hasn’t been a social tax on bicycles since 1981. Back then it was an extremely progressive move to cut taxes for environmental and health reasons. This has made purchasing bikes more affordable for over 25 years. And now, without consultation, the price of making green choices becomes more expensive. Climate change is a serious problem and this government can’t seem to understand that. I am astonished by the Liberals regressive message to British Columbians.
