HST: Blair Lekstrom Quits BC Liberal Cabinet and Caucus

-- Download HST: Blair Lekstrom Quits BC Liberal Cabinet and Caucus as PDF --

The anti-HST got a monstrous boost today with the resignation of a BC Liberal Cabinet minister because of his constituents’ opposition. And likely the threat that he’d be recalled in November with the strong opposition to the HST in his riding.

This changes everything.

HST opponents can email MLA Lekstrom to congratulate him at blair.lekstrom.mla@leg.bc.ca and while we’re at it, we should email the rest of the BC Liberal Party encouraging to follow that lead.

“It is clear to me that the residents of Peace River South are opposed to the harmonized sales tax and are unhappy with the way in which our government moved forward with this policy.”
