Will Miller Get His Way?
image

WIll Mayor Miller get the taxation powers he wants? Toronto city council takes its potentially historic vote on new taxes later today. Reading Toronto has already come out in favour of them (as much as it is possible to favour a solution made inevitable by bad, politically expedient policies by our Federal and Provincial governments). Miller's pro-tax supporters in council now claim they have the votes to carry the day. The reason? First time home buyers are now exempt from the new transfer tax. The Toronto Real Estate Board promises to be on hand to fight the vote.

The sooner Toronto can become financially self regulating the sooner it will be able to upgrade its sagging infrastructure and maintain its position as one of the world's most l cities.
