Milke opens up a can:
But wait, it gets worse. At the same time as the Ministry of Small Business Harassment and Ratchet Up the Revenue pursues you for trying to save a few bucks in tax -- even though you likely have the constitutional right to do so -- the B.C. Liberals offer up a pot of gold to public-sector unions: $1 billion if the unions settle their contracts before the end of March.
These would be the same unions who fought against the B.C. Liberals in 2001 and 2005.
Nice message there, Rick: Punish the small-business owners who support your government and hand over a billion bucks to government unions who tried to unseat you and your colleagues in the past -- and will do so again in 2009.
