The majority of people who want to scrap the HST is shrinking, according to an online survey by Angus Reid, the CBC reports.

The survey found 56 per cent of people in BC would vote to get rid of the tax, as opposed to 82 per cent in June 2010 who said they would scrap the tax in June 2010.

Last month, before the government promised to make changes to the HST, 62 per cent of committed voters said they would vote against the controversial tax in the upcoming referendum.

Dislike for the tax comes mostly from women, who voted 64 per cent in favour of scrapping the tax; respondents aged 18 to 34, who voted 62 per cent in favour of getting rid of the HST; and respondents living in households with an annual income below $50,000, who voted 59 per cent in favour of extinguishing the HST.
