Fight HST pin. Lyle Stafford for the Globe and MailLyle Stafford for the Globe and Mail/The Globe and Mail

The first-ever meeting of the province's select standing committee on legislative initiatives - charged with figuring out what to do about the anti-HST petition -took place Wednesday.

According to the 1994 act that brought citizen petitions into play, the committee has only two options: pass the petition's proposed bill to kill the HST along to the legislature for further consideration, or submit the question to a provincewide referendum next fall.

The meeting - which lasted over an hour - was ajourned with no decision made until Monday September, 13 at 1pm PT.
