It doesn't really matter, it is nice, sure, but 1% isn't a lot unless you are buying a lot. As a report on the TV said the other day, only those making a big purchase notice, but only those that are rich can make the big purchases anyway and the 1% makes little difference.
I don't think it matters either, especially since companies are not fined if they keep the tax at 7%. They do not have to decrease it to 6% if they don't want to. Alot of stores are not going to bother reducing it becaues it won't make a difference in the prices of their products. They say it is up to us consumers to police whether a company has reduced it or not. If we are still charged 7% tax then we are supposed to send those receipts into the gov't(somewhere, no idea of an address) and I am guessing we'll be reimbursed that 1%. Worth it, most likely not. I can see alot of companies(especially with those who have taxes added into the price) "reducing" the gst but charging the same so they are essentially making 1% more in profit. It is costing all these companies money to get their computerized registers to charge 6% instead of 7%.
