TOO EX­PEN­SIVE

Calgary Sun - - COMMENT -

Please peo­ple, vote No to this boon­dog­gle, BS Games. They do noth­ing to pro­mote the econ­omy and do noth­ing but in­crease our taxes 200-300%. The city is al­ready fork­ing out mil­lions to busi­nesses so they can just sur­vive and some are shut­ting their doors as we speak for (some­one’s) legacy. I don’t think so. We are ex­pected as city res­i­dents to fork out $3-5 bil­lion through our taxes. So think hard, peo­ple — $6,500 bucks a year just in prop­erty taxes. Just say No.

RICHARD MARTIN (The of­fi­cial num­ber is $3 bil­lion di­rectly from tax­pay­ers, via fund­ing from the three lev­els of govern­ment.)
