Oh, these politicians!

Stephen Harper promises tax cuts if he wins the January elections.

"I believe all taxes are bad, and better taxes are lower taxes,'' Harper, the leader of canada's largest opposition party, said on a campaign stop at an electronics store in a Toronto suburb.

I never liked the GST and I do hope Harper can become elected but the irony is that Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, a Conservative, introduced the federal sales tax in 1991!

Now, may be Harper is thinking what a mistake GST introduction was. Actually introducing the unpopular GST resulted in defeat of Conservatives in 1991 elections and they have never been able to win a major election ever since.
