Questions and POV concern[edit]

First I'd like to say excellent, informative article. Second, I was wondering what the exact wording of the enacted PST is and where could I read it. (talk) 03:14, 28 September 2009 (UTC)BeeCier

This article seems a bit opinionated to me. It presents one side of several arguments without presenting the arguments from opposing points of view. Mgolden (talk) 14:53, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

A lot of the statements in the article do not have citations. I recommend these be removed or at least researched. These included a lot of the one sided arguments you mentioned. Perfect5th (talk) 05:28, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

"Temporalization" (re "{{globalize}}")[edit]

Sales taxes in BC existed a long time before the HST came along; this article's title is not Harmonized Sales Tax (British Columbia). Under the current title it should have a history of sales taxes in the province (and colony) and also notes on how spending related to/targeted from those taxes has been spent, as well as past historical controversies over various taxes.Skookum1 (talk) 23:18, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
