In a typically half-assed and destructive compromise that passes the buck for irresponsible spending onto – guess who? – the Toronto taxpayer, the McGuinty Liberals and the Miller Dippers came up with the “City of Toronto Act”, which gives the City of Toronto unprecedented municipal taxation powers. Guess what? Miller wants to hear from you!
The City of Toronto wants to hear from YOU.Funding city-building initiatives and service improvements to programs such as transportation, parks and recreation, culture and climate change are essential for a prosperous and successful Toronto.The City is holding a public consultation to discuss and share your ideas about the possible new revenue tool options.Under the City of Toronto, revenue tools include applying a new alcohol or tobacco sales tax, vehicle ownership tax, land transfer tax and others.
There are a series of public meetings this month which I’m sure we all want to avoid like the plague. However, you don’t have to waste an evening at a freakshow propaganda festival to make your voice heard:
