A half-dozen Manitoba business and taxpayer organizations are calling on Premier Greg Selinger today to reverse the decision to raise the provincial sales tax.
In an open letter to the premier, the organizations say the proposed one percentage point PST increase will have a negative impact on Manitobans and business owners.
The six organizations that joined forces include the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association, the Mining Association of Manitoba Inc., the Manitoba Restaurant & Foodservices Association and the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association
The groups say they are willing to sit down with the government "and continue highlighting constructive ideas on how to reduce spending rather than raise taxes."
