Toronto and taxes

Dear Editor:

The czar of Toronto is spending our tax dollars again. Mayor John Tory is spending millions to install designated bus routes …. and of course the initial route is on Eglinton East into Scarborough, the very fertile core of his voters.

Extending bus routes doesn’t bother me whatsoever; however, at the same news conference, Tory stated that it is imperative that the city receive millions from all levels of government; otherwise Torontonians would be  confronted with a 35% property tax increase. This is the same mayor who installed air conditioning  in thousands of subsidized city apartments .

If Mayor Tory wants bus lanes, fine. If he wants to provide air conditioning to his voters, fine.

Just don’t make me pay for it .
