I am not against a GST increase, it remains one of my greatest disappointments that Harper followed through on that instead of other tax reforms. Of course it's a questionable bet that any increase in the GST would be offset by a reduction in income taxes
Not expecting a reduction in income tax, would be happy with no change to income tax and a bump in GST. EuroVATs are in the high-teen/low-20s %, so a return of GST to 7 or even further to 8-10 would be in line with European VAT and would also be enough on all tax payers alike that even the base the Liberals pander to would feel enough pain to not just support them blindly like in times past.
