    Spend LESS on developer driven profit and more on the “people who need our help” Less Landsdowne?

  2. Theresa says:

    Bruce — You nailed it!

  3. The Voter says:

    Seems to have worked for Olivia Chow in Toronto. Of course, the day of reckoning also came to them with the inevitable 9.5% property tax increase to catch up on all the damage created by years of successive under-inflation increases.

    How far are we from that? Not very. The question will be which side of 9.9% will Sutcliffe have to proffer up. Will it be single or double digits? Anybody with a basic understanding of elementary arithmetic knows that you can only maintain increases of 0 to 3% for a limited period of time without harming the fabric of the City, particularly when inflation is running over 8%.

    Previous mayors, prime among them Jim Watson, brought forward illusions disguised as budgets. Most of them had their thumb firmly planted on the scale to distort the reality of city financing. People believed because they wanted to believe but refuse to connect our crumbling streets and other infrastructure with a tax increase of 2.5% or less.

    Why do residents, seeing the charades that were the LRT, Lansdowne and so on, not realise that the jiggery-pokery that went on there is endemic throughout the City’s workings? Just because we’ve only seen the proof in those instances doesn’t mean they are isolated instances. In fact, instead of looking the other way in the face of a pattern of misdeeds and trickery, we should be assuming that all is not as it seems with the stories we are being told. It’s time to take a good look behind the curtain.
