London: Following the successful negotiation of a deal to provide GST interest forgiveness for the Duchess of Kent Legion with the federal government, MP Irene Mathyssen continued to work with the Legion to seek interest forgiveness from the provincial government on the PST portion of the debt.
The Government of Ontario listened, and has agreed to match the arrangement of the Government of Canada and has issued an Order in Council to forgive the provincial interest and penalties on the Legion’s debt.
Mathyssen issued an open letter to the Ontario Ministers of Revenue and Finance to thank them for their efforts on this matter.
