Well, as I've argued before - it's a rare Canadian that doesn't buy any automobiles whatsoever. So, a cut to the GST will save you significant money when you purchase a car.

What I like the most about a GST cut is that it's a fair, straightforward cut that benefits everybody who buys basic goods and services. Now, I'd love to see income tax cuts too, but I've often found that those are "targeted" - meaning that if you're not part of the "target", you don't get diddly squat.

If you cut income tax I think that you should cut them at least a little bit across the board so that everyone gets to benefit from the tax cut.

Also, it would be a lot harder (politically) for the Liberals to raise the GST again, rather that just raising the income taxes in the next fiscal year.
