Toronto can pay own way

Re Tory steps up pres­sure on Wynne for bud­get

bil­lions, April 9 I am re­ally fed up with right-wing may­ors cry­ing for the prov­ince to bail out Toronto. Toronto has the low­est tax rate in the GTA. Toronto has nearly 20 per cent of the pop­u­la­tion of On­tario. Why shouldn’t we be pay­ing our way?

I pay about $2,500 per year in city taxes for my lit­tle east-end semi. If an­other $1,000 will make Toronto’s tax rate equal to other ju­ris­dic­tions, I’m all for it ($1,000 per year is about the cost of a cou­ple of cof­fees per day).

Let’s make Toronto good again! Tom McElroy, East York
