Tomorrow Canadians will be celebrating our great country's 143rd birthday.
Canada Day (French: Fête du Canada), formerly Dominion Day (French: Le Jour de la Confédération), is Canada's national day, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united two British colonies and a province of the British Empire into a single country called Canada. Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as internationally.
Says Premier Dalton McGuinty:
“To create more jobs, top economists agree the single most important thing we can do is adopt the HST. It reduces costs for employers by billions of dollars, money they can now invest in new equipment, new machinery and new plants. It will create hundreds of thousands of new jobs.” (right ;S)
Ironically the HST (13% tax grab)comes into effect for Ontario and British Columbia on this day starting tomorrow.
Well we are not letting it rain on our parade..our shop is still going to celebrate Canada Day as usual! We're CLOSED!!! and heading for the beach!! so sorry Mr. McGuinty NO HST from us tomorrow!!
