I’d say drop the home owners grant for non-elderly non-disabled and cut income taxes by same amount.

Always bad idea to tax what we want to encourage more of (income) while subsidizing largely unproductive allocation of capital held by wealthy.

The entire idea of one level of government paying the taxes of another level is bureaucratic insanity

^ True but could argue that $1,000 a year in property taxes was too low to start with.

There is no reason why Lantzville should be a separate muni from Nanaimo

I've just had the "pleasure" of once again assuring Big Brother that I am the owner and occupier of my home.  :rtfm:  The Speculation Tax exemption declaration may be the most irritating bit of bureaucracy I have to endure each year. :angry: How long until the next provincial election?

The best way to complete the assertion is online.

The best way to inform me is via postal mail with a letter and a brochure.

 

One of this things is not like the other.
