Most of the products we buy every day will see no new tax. There are a lot of products and services on which we already pay the PST and GST. For these products, like cable and phone services, new cars and adult clothing, there won't be a change.
In total, about 83 per cent of products and services purchased by consumers will see no new tax. Only 17 per cent will see a new tax, things like personal and professional services such as hairstyling and legal fees, as well as energy costs including home heating fuel and electricity.
