EXCERPT:

The MSP move to a payroll tax came as a “nasty surprise,” said Jock Finlayson, executive vice-president of the B.C. Business Council.

“We’re not very happy with a new employer health tax because we weren’t expecting it,” he said.

But Finlayson also said he sympathizes with the pressure on the government to do something about housing affordability and generally supports the initiatives.
