Kevin Falcon says there will be extra exemptions added to the PST later.
Well, apparently, it because he simply doesn't have the space or time to deal with them now.
Or, put another way, paraphrasing what we imagine the Wizards behind the Birdman's curtain just might, perhaps, be saying:
"Actually, we haven't quite figured out what kind of targeted tax breaks we can give to those that need them least that will help us win the most electoral support in the game of demographic slice 'n dice that will begin in earnest when we roll out 'The Christy Party', v2.0, in the fall."
Sound too cynical to be even halfway true?
Are you kidding me?
As for the date - April Fools 2013, almost another whole year down the road....
Well, of course, that means good news they (think*) they can trumpet just as the election campaign heats up for real.
But there is something else, little talked about by the puffed-up pro-punditry so far.
And that is the fact this will allow the Campbell/Clark government to get through one more budget without paying back the remainder of the FedCon deficit reduction bribe that allows them to keep on spouting codswallop about what great and prudent fiscal managers they are.
*Personally, I think folks will be madder than hell when this is used cynically by the Christy Party to pretend they are really on our and Chris Olsen's side....Or some such balderdash...
