HST Economist - Jack Mintz
Not every economist thinks the HST is a good idea. As you may recall, the PEI government brought in Jack Mintz who's a supporter of the tax. Mintz is a professor of tax law and public policy at the University of Calgary. A provincial spokesperson says it paid him between 10 and 15 thousand dollars to prepare a study on the HST and then come to PEI to share it with Islanders. The CBC's Brian Higgins spoke to Jack Mintz following a news conference in Charlottetown Friday.
