No Meal Tax! Just Say No to HST

Dec 19 2017, 4:01 am

We all know that the HST (or Holy Shit Tax) is coming up soon. Although I don’t know enough about the pros and cons for everyone, what I do know is I don’t want to pay HST on my meals. So If you feel the same, I urge you to read the following message sent to us:

The campaign is being put together by both the BC (BCRFA) and Canadian restaurant associations (CRFA). They represent most restaurants from small independents to large chains. They know what a 7% hike in restaurant tabs does not just to your wallet but to thousands of full time and part time jobs. When you add the new 7% tax to the existing 5% tax the total is 12%.
That will apply not just to meals but to coffee, take-out food, cafeteria food for students – you name it! Other provinces have been able to do something to help people deal with new restaurant taxes, now it’s BC’s turn to speak out.

Our website,, is the online headquarters. There you will find an online petition, our blog, and support materials such as a letter template to the MPs and posters. We are also active on Twitter (@nomealtax) and have a Facebook Fan Page.
