PST Exemption on Helmets and Bikes!
The Ontario Government announced today that they will remove the PST from bike helmets, other safety accessories, and bicycles that cost under $1000, starting December 1st.
"We want to encourage more Ontarians - young and young-at-heart - to get
outdoors, spend time riding bikes as a family and with friends, or to try
riding to work if possible, leaving the car at home. Together, we're building a culture of health and well-being across Ontario by encouraging more families to embrace active living."
Right on. I'm glad this is one election promise that the Liberals came through on. Now let's see those bike racks at Queen's park get all filled up!
Yes, that's Olivia Chow's bike at Parliament in Ottawa. Maybe the GST could be next?
