HST was the reason we invested

A vote to keep HST

Editor:

The HST formed a very important part of our decision to invest tens of millions of dollars into construction projects in Prince George.

Forty jobs were created. If the HST wasn’t in place, I’m not sure if we would have invested to the extent that we did.

My clients see the real value of the HST. Tax harmonization has given us all the ability to build capital projects and therefore create jobs in the Prince George region.

Commonwealth Capital has recently undertaken an aggressive urban re-development in downtown Prince George.

Over the past six months, our business has completed a $10 million health centre and began construction of the city’s first major urbanresidential development, valued at $6 million. Those projects equal jobs, thanks to the HST.
