Re: property taxes
Edmonton has some of the lowest property taxes of any major city in Canada. Only Calgary and Vancouver paid less per $1000 of home evaluation. Our tax levy is far lower than other cities, and we miss out on any possible civic funding that would come from paying PST.
You're only complaining because you're used to being one of the few exception for taxation rates in Canada. Given all Edmonton's financial outlay courtesy of its citizenry, it's asinine to suggest that a growing city of our size could ever hold off on raising taxes. We're fortunate that we're as well managed as we are--the City of Edmonton Corporation is the one of the most efficiently managed municipal corporations in Canada.
For more information, just have a look at this document
which collected its data from municipalities themselves.
As you were.
