On the rare occasion when I am asked by any level of government as to whether I would like to pay more tax, I say ‘no’. Thanks for giving us the choice, folks.
That’s not the only reason I’m voting ‘no’ in the upcoming transportation referendum in Vancouver, though.
I also happen to think that smarter spending of existing tax revenue would more than cover the cost of any of these infrastructure improvements.
That’s pretty much it. If the transportation plan advocates want their improvements so badly, they can figure out where to get the money.
I see a lot of commentary from the ‘Yes’ side on blogs and letters to the editors, effectively (if not directly) calling ‘No’ Voters unreasonable, uninformed idiots with no long-term vision. Not helping your case, ‘Yes’-side. Cheers.
