Stock up now, before HST hits!

Come July 1st, HST will come into effect in BC. That means 12% tax on pretty much everything! NUU! I recommend you buy any books you want, or subscribe to magazines you've been meaning to now, before you have to pay extra tax. Another good idea is to stock up a bit on non-perishable foods, like canned goods, pasta, etc. Things are going to be a lot more expensive, especially buying houses, eating out, buying groceries. Some might think 7% more is no big deal, but it actually adds up to a lot in a year. Go to your favorite restaurant now before you have to pay even more!
