The GST did indeed make people hate Mulroney. In fact, they kicked him out of office for it, instead electing Jean Chretien, who promised to abolish the GST. Chretien broke that promise of course, and instead of being punished for it, he took credit for balancing the budget - which he could not have done without Mulroney's GST. So, you see, sometimes polticians are punished for doing what is right, and rewarded for dishonesty.
