Manitoba Tories, NDP threaten more court battles over PST decision
Progressive Conservatives may appeal court's dismissal of case, NDP may seek costs from Tories
There may be more legal battles over the Manitoba government's sales tax increase.
Opposition Leader Brian Pallister is not ruling out an appeal of last week's court decision that upheld the tax hike.
The NDP government, meanwhile, says it may ask the court to order Pallister's party to pay some of the $150,000 it spent in legal costs.
The government hiked the provincial sales tax last year to eight per cent from seven and eliminated a referendum that had been mandatory under the province's balanced budget law.
