Inside Story of why Gordon Campbell brought "Harmony" to the Provincial Sales Tax

According to the BC Liberal Party's Biography on their former Premier:

Mr. Campbell has been awarded the Simon Fraser University “Distinguished Alumni” Award and the Inter-Faith Brotherhood “Man of the Year” Award. Mr. Campbell was also granted the rare honour of being given a First Nations name by the Ahousaht First Nation in recognition of his efforts to improve the lives of First Nations people.  Campbell’s First Nations name is Chamatook, which means: “The one who is able to do the right thing and bring harmony.”  Mr. Campbell is also the author of a children’s book, "Tuaq: The Only One" which was published in 1995.   He was born in Vancouver.
