A Progressive Conservative party court challenge to the NDP government’s PST hike will begin June 4.

PC leader Brian Pallister said Wednesday an earlier court date set for April 25 is no longer needed to move the case forward.

The Tories filed their lawsuit in February in Court of Queen’s Bench.

Pallister then said the nub of the PCs’ argument is the NDP ran afoul of the law by hiking the PST without holding a public referendum, as required under the 1995 Taxpayer Protection Act.

The Selinger government hiked the PST to eight per cent from seven per cent last July 1.
