Liberal MP Shawn Murphy of Charlottetown has recently introduced a private member's bill to Parliament to eliminate GST from the sale of bicycles.
Opinions on the Liberal party, parliamentary democracy, and the effectiveness of private members' bills aside, take a moment to email (or write - they still take letters more seriously) your MP and express support for this initiative. Not only will it help to promote cycling as a viable from of transportation, but it might just save YOU some money!
The VACC has a great press release here:http://www.vacc.bc.ca/documents/2008billtoremoveGSTfrombikes.pdf
So get typing, and get the tax man off your bike!
Oh yeah, PS, Midnight Mass this thursday - I won't be there (gotta work) but you should be!
