Chris Thompson, UBC law student and creator of an open letter in the form of a YouTube video addressed to former Socred premier Bill Vander Zalm (the most vocal proponent of the anti-HST movement in B.C.), appearing on the Business News Network.

It’s interesting that in the last federal election, Smilin’ Jack Layton was traipsing around the province merrily promising that if he was elected, an NDP government would repeal the HST in B.C.– a position also supported by his provincial counterparts. More proof that when it comes to basic economics, the NDP is simply out to lunch.
