The HST issue is dead in Ontario but something of a different story in BC. Read the link below for a good description of the lay of the land...
"I have two words for Gordon Campbell and Colin Hansen: Be afraid.
That’s right. You read that right.
Be very afraid men, because in my opinion, the prospect of the HST is the proverbial straw that broke the camels back, and as everyone knows… camels have loooong memories – as do the people of British Columbia.You have both earned the contempt of a good majority in this province, and among them are the very people who voted you in last fall -who, in my experience yesterday, are not afraid to loudly voice their disappointment. I personally spoke to hundreds of people prior to the rally and each one had the same things to say: NO HST and Enough of Gordon Campbell." - laila yuile's blog
