HST Hike Frowned Upon By Queen's Park

No love from the Premier over the Association of Municipalities of Ontario's desire for a hike to the HST by one per cent.  

Kathleen Wynne says with her government focused on trying to reduce costs, a tax increase flies in the face of that objective.

Speaking to municipal reps in Ottawa, she's says there's dialogue that needs to take place on what the real issues are for municipalities.

Wynne says the HST hike has never been brought up in her recent visits to communities across the province.

The opposition NDP and PC parties also turn a thumbs down to the hike idea.
