The province is set to launch a public HST information centre today in an attempt to clear up confusion ahead of the referendum on whether to scrap the controversial tax.

John Les, Liberal parliamentary secretary for HST information, said the point is to arm the public with the facts.

“Whether people vote for or against the (HST), I want them to make it on an informed basis,” Les said.

He said the NDP is trying to turn the public against the HST for political manoeuvring while playing “fast and loose” with the facts.

NDP MLA Mike Farnworth called the information centre a “ridiculous waste of public funds” and a “pathetic attempt” to change public opinion about the controversial tax.
