Water and its infrastructure is paid for by your water bill and taxes.
If you raise revenue from the water bill, fewer taxes must be applied to the water side of the city.
Already water bills have been raised recently by six and seven per cent. Now a flat tax on top of that. Now this is not to say that water infrastructure isn’t expensive, but fewer taxes into water mean a more palatable deficit. It’s a way around raising property taxes.
Who might want that?

Who is representing the taxpayer on Laurier Avenue? My “fairness” bill is getting pretty high.
