Contractor claims payment of HST on Labour, though quote implied that HST was included in his initial quote under 'Labour'

The contractor that completed the roofing on my house 5 days ago now pretends that the HST on Labour was not included in his quote that looked like this: materials $ + HST on materials = total materials $ + labour $ = total $ of the quote.

Is it not implied that if materials included the HST, the Labour also did include it?

Otherwise put, should he not have added that Labour does not include HST? In my mind, it is an important omission, given that I asked for a quote including all taxes.

The contractor is now threatening to have a lien put on my house.

What is your opinion on the matter? Can it be considered that he misled me to think that HST was included?

Thank you,

A
