Util­ity rate hikes hurt poorer peo­ple most

Toronto Star - - CANADA -

Re City look­ing at hik­ing util­ity rates, Nov. 5

Given that poorer peo­ple need to use water and have garbage pickup as much as wealth­ier peo­ple, these rate in­creases seem dis­crim­i­na­tory when com­pared to prop­erty tax hikes. Am I not get­ting some­thing or is this about coun­cil not want­ing to an­tag­o­nize wealth­ier and bet­ter or­ga­nized home­own­ers? Peter Crosby, Toronto
