What People are Saying Today about Ontario's HST

TORONTO, June 30 /CNW/ - Experts from across all sectors agree that Ontario's economy is about to get a whole lot stronger, more competitive and create jobs for Ontario families:

    -   "The HST is going to make us (Ontario) even better for manufacturing,
        more attractive for manufactures to invest here" (Buzz Hargrove,
        former National President of the Canadian Auto Workers - AM 640

    -   "And what this will do is will bring all of that together and we'll
        eventually save money for the consumer." (Len Crispino, President &
        CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce - CBC Radio Windsor)

    -   "We do believe ultimately that this will be better for the
        economy..." (Catherine Swift, Canadian Federation of Independent
        Business - AM 640 Toronto)

    -   "The single best thing you could do to build back up the Ontario
        economy which was faltering then was to harmonize these taxes and
        reform them so that they were better for business who might want to
        invest and creating new jobs, buying new equipment and so on."
        (John Tory - NewsTalk 1010)

    -   "The economic theory is that (the HST) will provide important
        benefits to larger and especially manufacturing businesses and that's
        probably a good thing." (Kevin Gaudet, Director, Canadian Taxpayers
        Federation - Canadian Press)

    -   "In a nutshell, the HST is about ensuring that Ontario has a
        competitive business environment. But it will reduce costs for
        business, it should help business to succeed, grow, attract
        investment, expand, translating into jobs." (Anne Golden, President
        and CEO of the Conference Board of Canada - CBC Ontario Morning)
