Torontonians: City wants your input on “New Revenue Tools”

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:

  1. How much you want to bet we see an exodus from TO? A socialist with his hands on the tax lever? Oh My!

    Mayor Miller will raise taxes as requested by the people of Toronto. He should raise them swiftly and sharply – Torontonians won’t appreciate the extra taxes unless they bite hard. Miller needs the money to pay for various ‘social organizations’ that work on his re-election campaign between elections. Torontonians want more tax, less jobs and as few businesses as possible – give the people what they want.
