Uh, Happy Birthday?
Not like it’s the type o’ thing that one celebrates, but today, for us Canadians, marks the 15th year of the goddamned Goods and Services Tax. FIFTEEN YEARS! Remember how Brian Mul-ruin-y was supposed to introduce it as a temporary measure? Hmm? Remember how he resigned a few years afterwards? Hmm?
Today seems to have been a dark day in the history of the then “Progressive” Conservative Party. It certainly did progressively become conservative.
Also on this day in Canadian Conservative history: the door of 24 Sussex Dr. hits Kim Campbell in the ass.
