In Perfect Harmony

Just wanted to say a few words about Premier McGuinty's plans to harmonize the PST and GST in the province of Ontario. This is something that has been a long time coming. If you talk to small business owners and frankly, large business owners in this province they will tell you that this is something that will ease the bureaucratic burden. This was a burden imposed on the province by Brian Mulroney and now thanks to Dalton McGuinty it has at least been partially lifted. I understand that this will not be cheap for Ontarians. It is a tax grab. However, there aren't a lot of tax grabs that help foster a better environment for business in Ontario. This does. The province is in trouble and needs any extra income it can get. Businesses need reasons to stay open; they need a reason to keep trying in this economic climate. This can't hurt. Dalton McGuinty can be called a lot of things, cowardly isn't one of them. This is a man of great political courage and he should applauded for doing the right thing, even if it isn't the most popular thing today.
