Another tax rise, another money grab

I’ve got government on the brain since our municipal taxes keep rising. With the talk of every issue that affects the budget, I feel a tug on my wallet. And, once again, the City is digging deep into my pockets to take all he can get.

Scratch that.

It’s actually more like grabbing me by the ankles and shaking out every last nickel it possibly can, leaving me dizzy, disoriented, and questioning my decision to ever become a Victoria resident and entrepreneur.

Why did I sign up for this annual shakedown anyway?

As I’ve said many times before, if Victoria residents had to actually write cheques to the City every month, there would probably be a revolution overnight.

The mayor and council know this. So the grab system is designed to keep your average resident in the dark to the extent of the shakedown.
