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 http://c.ymcdn.com/sites/www.realpac..._report_fi.pdf which collected its data from municipalities themselves.

As you were.
Did you just say its "asinine" to ever expect our taxes to not be raised every single year?

It is more than obvious you either work for the city or are an elected official.

I challenge you to reveal your real identity here.
