Re: "Cross-border shoppers get dressing down," News, June 8.
A number of people are happy because fewer rules to buy U.S. goods might save them money right now. However, I hope responsible shoppers will bite the bullet and get aboard the bandwagon to continue buying in Canada, so their taxes on purchases can go towards paying for services most people need, such as universal health care.
Keeping our hard-earned dollars in B.C. benefits not only the store owners, but the taxes on goods purchased pay for ever-rising government expenses - increasing health care, costly transit systems and high executive salaries.
