Take a Stand Against Bullying - Jeremy Dias

Last week people across PEI donned pink t-shirts to stand against bullying...because bullying is something many young people, and adults, experience, including Jeremy Dias. Dias is a public speaker who visits schools, talking to kids about his own experiences. He's been the City of Ottawa's Citizen of the Year, Ontario Youth Medal winner and was Teen Choice Award nominee for his advocacy work. This week he's on PEI, speaking with Island students. He's stopped by our studio.

Island Morning - HST - Businesses making Under 30KDec 10, 2012 | 9:01Island Morning HST - Businesses making Under 30K Audio
Island Morning HST - Businesses making Under 30K Dec 10, 2012 | 9:01Many small businesses on PEI are just finding out they won't have to charge ANY sales tax when the HST comes in April 1st. Currently, their customers must pay the 10 per cent Provincial Sales Tax. But if the small business grosses UNDER 30-thousand dollars a year, the company doesn't have to charge the 5 per cent GST. As of April 1st... those small companies that aren't charging GST now, will have the option of NOT collecting ANY sales tax at all. That could give those businesses a competitive edge. But on the other side of the coin, those businesses will now have to start paying sales tax on items they buy for resale. We hear from P.E.I. Finance Minister Wes Sheridan, and as Island Morning's Pat Martel discovered, some small business owners still can't believe they won't have to charge any sales tax at all.
