In the middle of an oil crash and the COVID-19 pandemic, Naheed Nenshi and the Calgary city council just hiked property taxes by an average of 7.5%. But it gets worse: some people are seeing increases of 40% or more!
In a time when record numbers of Calgarians are out of work, does it really make sense to force homeowners to pay even more in property taxes, and cause others to pay higher rents?
Tell Nenshi and the city councillors: Now is NOT the time to jack up costs for everyone! We are all in the same boat -- the city needs to get its own house in order and control its costs, not make Calgarians pay even more to support the government's overspending.
