here we go again...folks in the suburbs always wanting everyone else to subsidize them, but never wanting to do the same in return. This issue isn't even debatable. It's completely messed up and completely in favour of the suburbs. Let's get a council with equal representation by population. Let's decided if we're doing area rating everywhere, or not at all. We can't have more of this nonsense where city hall continues to jack up transit fares forcing urban residents to pay hundreds of more dollars a year instead of the entire city paying a few extra dollars, and then turn around make those same car-less, inner city residents pay thousands of tax dollars to build more highways and off ramps to more big box stores in the suburbs. Either do it fair across the board, or let's all act civil and recognize the community value and social responsibility of having our taxes go towards public services, regardless of whether or not I personally use them. Old city of Hamilton residents seem to understand this simple fact of society.
