Your Turn: Share your thoughts on the PST hike

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 16/4/2013 (1587 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Manitoba Finance Minister Stan Struthers said a hike to the Provincial Sales Tax was seen as the best way to ensure the province could protect key government services while improving roads, bridges and flood-protection infrastructure.

"The PST is the fairest way to reach these goals because the cost will be shared by everyone," the minister said.

Tell us your thoughts on the one per cent increase to the PST, effective July 1 and implemented for the next 10 years. Did the province have any other choice?
