B.C. business review

Chamber luncheon to discuss HST vote

The South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce will be welcoming the CEO of the BC Chamber of Commerce as its guest luncheon speaker next month.

John Winter will discuss the impact the HST vote will have on the business community during the Sept. 14 event, held at the Pacific Inn.

Later in the month, Winter and colleagues will be attending the Canadian Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting in St. John’s to champion change for B.C. businesses in the areas of taxation, transportation, economic development, social development and the environment.

He is to share some of these hot-top issues with the South Surrey audience.

Registration and networking will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Inn, 1160 King George Blvd., and the luncheon program starts at noon.

To register, call 604-536-6844, fax 604-536-4994 or visit
